Recently, the Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL) commissioned two rooftop solar power plants at the Naganallur and Meenambakkam stations on its metro line. The two solar plants worth a combined capacity of 428 kWp have been installed on the roofs of the two stations and the electricity generated will be used to meet the day-to-day power demands of the two stations.

The solar plants, with a capacity to generate around 57,780 units per month, is expected to save metro rail around Rs 26.34 lakh per year.

In March, we reported that the second phase powering of Kochi Metro with solar power will soon be inaugurated with the installation of panels at Muttom yard. The latest capacity additions are expected to bump the metro rail corps solar power usage, almost doubling it to 40 percent.

As on date, solar panels are fitted on rooftops of all the Metro stations, with a combined capacity of 4 MW. The new facility will add an additional 2.3 MW to its energy mix and will be grid connected. The new panels will be set up following an agreement with AMP Solar India Private Ltd.
