Instead of conventional power supply, solar energy would add power to all stations of Noida-Greater Noida Metro Rail corridor’s Aqua Line that would be operational soon, the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) said in a statement on November 12, as reported by PTI.
The NMRC entered into an agreement with a private firm on the day of this announcement, for the solar energy project of the Aqua Line which would run between Sector 71 station in Noida and the Depot Station in Greater Noida, covering 29.7 km through 21 stations.
What all will be solar-powered under NMRC?
“Solar panels will be installed on the roofs of all the 21 stations of the Noida-Greater Noida Metro rail corridor. These panels will also be installed in the parking areas and boundary walls of the metro stations,” the NMRC said in a statement.
