Share post:

DELHI (Metro Rail News): The Phase IV elevated metro stations are being prepared for the installation of solar plants. Space will be reserved for inverters, panels and necessary equipment. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) officials stated that the solar plants will be installed on the rooftops of the stations based on their alignment and exposure to sunlight.

The intention is to establish solar plants with a capacity of 10 MW at the Phase IV Metro stations, which could generate approximately 1 crore units of solar energy per year. The annual requirement of additional electricity for Phase IV is estimated to be around
21.8 crore units.

Phase IV has three priority corridors – Janakpuri West-RK Ashram (Magenta Line), Majlis Park-Maujpur (Pink Line), and Aerocity-Tughlaqabad (Silver Line). Currently, 35% of the total energy supplied to Delhi Metro is from renewable sources. The DMRC officials aim to increase this to 50% by 2031. Of the 35% renewable energy used by Delhi Metro, the majority (30%) is from offsite share generated by the Rewa Solar Plant in Madhya Pradesh, while 4% is from rooftop solar plants, and 1% is produced by the waste-to-energy plant in Ghazipur. DMRC’s operational cost for electricity demand accounts for 30% of the total power demand of 270 MW.
