More recently in December 2019, DMRC chief Mangu Singh had said that all future buildings of Delhi Metro will be designed to straight away accommodate rooftop solar panels and to eventually get top score from green building rating authorities. Asserting that all stations built in the future will be able to accommodate rooftop solar panels straightway, Singh said, “In phase-1 and phase-2 structures were not designed to accommodate rooftop solar panels, so changes had to be made.”
