The top 5 cities in india, from today to 2020, will have released almost 1 BILLION tonnes of pollution. ONE BILLION tonnes. Just from cars.
Now, Imagine transporting 17 lakh people daily without creating a single milligram of pollution.
Hyderabad is about to open one of the biggest Metro rail networks in the country in November. It is expected to transport 17 Lakh people per day.
The trains run on electricity. And it obviously takes a LOT of electricity to run the trains and light the stations.
Why can't this electricity come from Solar Power?
Not just panels on stations, not 40-50%... but 100%. Instead of buying electricity, why not invest in a Solar plant that can exclusively feed the metro for the next 20 years. Delhi metro is already exploring this idea.
I own an electric car which takes 7-8 units of electricity per charge. I installed a 6Kw solar pv system on my roof, that generates a minimum of 12units, even on a cloudy day. So this idea works, from end to end...clean.
Like how Kochi became the worlds first 100% solar airport, we can become the worlds first 100% solar Metro.
If the Hyderabad Metro is run by clean electricity, then we would have sent a message to the world. That we care about our future.
Imagine transporting 17 lakh people daily without creating a single milligram of pollution. :)
This can become a reality only if the people in power take action.
We need the government to be a visionary and lead us to a cleaner and more responsible future.
Please forward, spread and speak about this to all the people who can make this idea a reality. Lets become part of the solution.
Every day counts. Its all adding up.
Lets make the Hyderabad Metro 100% Solar !
