In order to encourage more people to use electric vehicles, South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) plans to develop maximum 50 public charging stations by the end of this financial year. The corporation also hopes to install rooftop solar panels at all schools and municipal buildings by the end of 2019.
This is also considered a part of its environmental friendly plans. The corporation is now finalizing sites for installing charging stations across south Delhi. SDMC commissioner Puneet Goel said that, the reforms have already been introduced to the department and have replaced 75 diesel and petrol vehicles with e-vehicles to reduce carbon emission by 75,000 tonne per annum. The public e-charging stations will encourage general public to reduce pollution.
He also said that, they have installed rooftop solar panels of 9 megawatt capacity at 208 school buildings. It helps us generate 10 million solar units every year. Panels will be installed at other municipal buildings soon.
