Promoting the use of green energy in the city, the South Delhi Municipal Corporation on February 10 signed a memorandum of understanding with the Power Trading Corporation India Ltd. to establish the first municipal solar energy plant in city. It will have the capacity to generate 2.5 MW of electricity.
The plant will be established at 9.42 acres of land in Ferozpur Village (Faridabad) which is leased out for a period of 25 years. "The land belongs to the unified Municipal Corporation and lying unutilised for years as the hot mix plant constructed here became defunct. So the corporation decided to use the place for establishing solar plant," said a senior SDMC official.
