[Pics] Solar Panels Installed at Delhi Metro’s Kalindi Kunj Depot

Sun Energy India Enterprises has completed installing solar panels on top of two sheds of the upcoming Delhi Metro Magenta Line’s Kalindi Kunj Depot! These panels are part of a 1.09 MW solar plant which will be commissioned in the coming months. While this may seem minuscule compared to the Delhi Metro’s current peak power requirement of 150 MW and future requirement of 250 MW by the time Phase 3 becomes fully operational in 2018, it will definitely help in making the depot’s sheds self sufficient.

The DMRC has over the past years installed solar plants at various stations such as Anand Vihar, Pragati Maidan & the Yamuna Bank Depot totaling 6.22 MW (see list & installed capacity), and recently announced their intention to have an installed capacity of 20MW by 2016-end and 50MW by 2021-end.
