The first solar module of Delhi Metro’s introductory inaugural “Roof top Solar Power Plant’’has been inaugurated at the Dwarka Sector 21 metro station. The plant which has the capacity of 500 kWp is expected to start generation by the end of July. The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation will become the first ever metro system in the country to install this plant. One of the officials confirmed that the power produced form this plant will meet the power requirements of the DMRC at this station. Adding further he said that a power purchase agreement regarding the installments of the plant was signed last February between the Delhi Metro and a multinational firm that is engaged in installation of solar powers.
DMRC when asked said, this is the largest roof top plant with such capacity in Delhi National Capital Region NCR under the RESCO model. Under this model, the DMRC will pay for the units generated by the plant and the capital investment shall be provided by the developer,”
