India: Solar energy at 2,000 level crossings across the country

15 Jul

indian Railways is to tender the first phase of a planned 1,000 megawatt solar power project. A key part of the programme is the provision of a total of 1.3 megawatt of solar panels at 2,000 level crossings. This is seen as the economic solution for delivering power in rural and remote areas without access to the electricity grid and a better alternative to diesel generators as used at some of the level crossings to benefit from the solar power programme.
