JAIPUR: Continuing its efforts to save electricity, the Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) has decided to replace all sodium lights at Vivek Vihar station with light-emitting diode (LED) lights.
This would help JMRC to save Rs 8 lakh per month. At present, 56 kilowatt (kWh) is consumed at this metro station, once the LED lights are installed, the consumption will be 26 kWh . "We have invited tenders for the same . The estimate cost to install these lights will be Rs 14 Lakh. The JMRC is setting an example for other government departments to save energy," said a JMRC official.
JMRC makes major expenditure on purchasing the electricity and efforts are continuously made to reduce the consumption. The Metro also has decided to set up rooftop solar panels at eight elevated stations on its 9.25-km-long corridor between Mansarovar and Chandpole.
The power generated by 2,500-kwp 'Rooftop Solar Power Plant' will be used to meet all the requirements at the stations in day time and would reduce its dependence on non-renewable sources. This will be the biggest solar plant, which will be installed on any of the government building.
"For all Metro operations, approximately 11 lakh units are required. The plant will produce 2.5 lakh units which will meet all the requirement of the stations in day time," added the official.
