New Delhi: Hon'ble Prime Minister Sh. Narendra Modi today dedicated the Rewa Solar Energy Plant in Madhya Pradesh to the nation via video conference.
The Delhi Metro procures 345 MUs of solar energy per year from Rewa. DMRC is meeting nearly 60% of daytime energy requirements from Rewa and overall 32% of the total energy requirements from this solar plant. With this, DMRC became one of the greenest Metros in the world.
Apart from the energy procured from Rewa solar power, DMRC also produces 32.4 MW of solar energy from rooftop solar power plants installed on roofs of DMRC stations, depots, FOBs, and staff residential colonies. In addition, 2 MW of solar power is obtained from Waste to Energy (WtE) plant from Ghazipur under Swachh Bharat Mission which also helps in making Swachh Delhi and Swastha Delhi.
DMRC is encouraging the use of Renewable power without any regulatory obligation and is contributing towards National Solar Mission.
This project is a sterling example of teamwork and coordination of various Private, Government and International organizations and of a successful Inter-state partnership.
