MahaMetro Rail Corporation recently signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Delhi-based Ampin Energy Transition, a company engaged in renewable energy business. Ampin will be setting up a 6 MWp solar power plant at the premises of Nagpur Metro. The power generated through solar panels set up at metro stations and depots will be supplied to the corporation at ₹4.15 a unit, said a MahaMetro spokesperson.

“The solar panels will have to be set up at the stations and depots within a period of one and a half years under the first phase of the metro rail route,” the official said.

The press release posted at Ampin’s website says the PPA stands for a period of 25 years. This will be the company’s third solar power project with a metro rail and the first in the state. The 6 MW capacity will be set up in two phases of 2.5 MWp and 3.5 MWp each.

The project is expected to result in savings upto ₹41% per unit. In terms of environmental impact, the carbon offset achieved by the initiative would be around 7000MT of CO2 annually, says the press release.
