Metro to generate solar power from station rooftops

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has made plans to generate 20MW of solar energy from the rooftops of its stations and office buildings by the end of 2017.

While this is a fraction of the total consumption of 148MW, it is expected to take care of several power requirements at stations. 

DMRC will also be able to keep a tab in real time on how much solar energy its rooftop projects are generating, what is the consumption and how much excess solar energy is being sent to the grid through a web portal. It can also track the changes in generation due to weather conditions. 

The web portal is one of DMRC's plans to expand its renewable energy generation over the next few years. Though the portal is for internal use now, it will be made public later.
