DMRC One of the Greenest Metro Services Globally

DMRC is meeting 32 percent of its total energy requirement from the 750 MW Rewa solar park, making it one of the greenest metro services in the world.

The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had recently announced that it is meeting 32 percent of its total energy requirement from the 750 MW solar power project set at Rewa Solar Park in Madhya Pradesh, making it one of the greenest metro services in the world.

“PM Narendra Modi has dedicated the Rewa Solar Park to the nation. DMRC is meeting nearly 60 percent of daytime energy requirements from Rewa and overall 32 percent of total energy requirements from Rewa. With this, DMRC has become one of the greenest Metros in the world,” a tweet by the official handle of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation read.

PM Modi had recently inaugurated the 750 MW Rewa Solar Park in Madhya Pradesh while stating that solar energy is the pure form of energy and would help the country towards achieving “atmanirbharta”.

The PM had also claimed that the project is the largest such in Asia, however, that claim is false as India itself is home to the 2200 MW Bhadla Solar Park in Rajasthan, and the 2000 MW Pavagada Solar Park in the state of Karnataka.

“Not just for the present, solar energy will be a medium of energy needs of the 21st century because solar power is sure, pure, and secure. It is sure because the Sun would shine throughout the world; it is secure because solar energy rather than polluting the environment, helps in replenishing it and it is secure because it is a testimony and inspiration towards ‘atmanirbharta’,” the Prime Minister had said in his address in which he dedicated the project to the nation.

The Rewa Solar Park is comprised of three solar generating units of 250 MW each located on a 500-hectare plot of land situated inside a solar park. Central financial assistance of Rs 138 crore has been provided to Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Limited (RUMSL) for the development of the solar park.
