Delhi Rickshaws To Get Solar Roof Panels For Cleaner Future

Written By:

Delhi Government is hoping to implement several initiatives to provide residents with a cleaner and greener future. An all-new 'Help Delhi Breathe' campaign was introduced by the Centre for Environment & Energy Development (CEED).

The population of auto rickshaws is extremely high in the capital city of Delhi. Rooftop of these auto rickshaws will be used to generate electricity. Traditional roof system will be replaced with solar panels and the 'Help Delhi Breathe' campaign will promote this conversion.

Ramapati Kumar is the CEO of CEED and believes solar panels on the rooftops of auto rickshaws is a start. He believes that Delhi needs several similar initiatives that will help build a better tomorrow.

By using solar panels on available roof space in Delhi, two million tonnes of CO2 emission can be reduced. Even if only 1.6 percent of existing roof space is used by Delhi, solar energy worth 2 gigawatts could be generated. This means that two thermal power plants could be shut down, thus reducing air pollution.
