    Indian Railways Opts For Solar Energy Powered Coaches

    Jagdish Kumar, July 21, 2015 (Breaking Energy)

    “…[Indian Railways, the world’s fourth largest railway network, rolled] out its solar energy powered coaches. The solar panels were installed on its roof of a non-AC coach of Rewari-Sitapur passenger train operated by Northern Railway (NR) to meet the coaches’ requirement…Costing about $6124 (Rs 3.90 lakh) for setting up solar panel on the non-AC coach of Rewari-Sitapur passenger train, Indian Railways will save $1947 (Rs 1.24 lakh) per year in power cost. The solar panels generate about 17 units of power in a day which enables the lighting system in the coach…The project is part of the pilot study done by railways to harness solar power …As per the studies conducted by Indian Railways, a train using solar power can reduce diesel consumption by up to 90,000 litres per year and also bring down the carbon dioxide emission by over 200 tonnes…Indian Railways has also chalked out plans to procure 1000 MW solar power in the next five years…” click here for more
