Solar energy to power 4 Metro stations in Hyderabad

Vishwas News

Hyderabad, Nov 11:When the Hyderabad Metro Rail commences its commercial operations on the Miyapur-Nagole stretch from November 28, the four Metro stations at Nagole, Uppal, Uppal Stadium and Miyapur will have a distinction.
The Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL), with the objective of promoting green and clean energy usage, has installed solar panels on the rooftops of these four stations to generate solar energy. Among the 24 stations on the Miyapur to Nagole stretch, these four stations will be utilising solar energy for various purposes.
HMRL authorities informed that nearly 2,500 units of clean energy will be generated per day through the solar panels installed on the roof tops of the four stations. However, the energy generated will be utilised only for certain utilities, said a senior official from HMR.
During the recently conducted Urban Mobility India conference here in the city, experts had strongly pitched for usage of clean and eco-friendly energy. HMRL had made plans for usage of solar energy from the inception stage of the project. For this, they had conducted a survey and identified 54,586 square metres of rooftop area on stations, depots and 33.2 acres on ground in depots. This space would facilitate in generating clean and eco-friendly energy to the tune of 15 MW.
The entire HMR project has the capacity of facilitating generation of 20 million units of clean energy a year. This will account for nearly 10 per cent of the total energy requirement of HMR and more importantly, will aid in reducing the carbon emission by 16,000 tonnes a year compared to the use of conventional energy sources, explained the official.
Other metro services in the country, including Chennai and Delhi too are focusing on usage of solar energy in a big way.
