Global renewable energy firm SunEdison on Sunday said it has installed eight solar systems for Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) along the Badarpur- Faridabad line.

The Badarpur-Faridabad metro line, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, “is the first metro line in the DMRC network to integrate solar into the design of the buildings”, SunEdison said to media.

The systems are built on the roofs of the stations and depot and are expected to generate 1.9 megawatts (MW) of clean, reliable, and cost effective solar power.

“Millions of people rely on the Delhi Metro each day and by installing SunEdison’s solar system in eight of the metro lines, we are excited that these commuters will be able to benefit from a clean and reliable source of electricity,” said Pashupathy Gopalan, SunEdison’s president of Asia-Pacific and Sub-Saharan Africa.

“These systems took only two months to build and will generate electricity for the metro line for 25 to 30 years with little maintenance cost,” Gopalan added.

The solar systems are expected to generate 2.

5 gigawatt- hours of electricity a year, and avoid the emission of 1,700 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year, the equivalent of taking 363 cars off the road or preventing more than 800 metric tons of coal from being burned.

SunEdison is building similar solar power plants generating 1.7 MW at the Yamuna Bank station and Yamuna Bank yard.
