Mumbai: From May, MMOPL (Mumbai Metro One Private Limited) will source 30 per cent of its non-traction energy requirement through solar panels which have been installed at Andheri & Ghatkopar Metro stations. The initiative is a part of Mumbai Metro One’s `Go Green Go Clean’ campaign launched to mark its second anniversary. Metro One’s annual auxiliary power requirement for non-traction use is approximately 11MW.
