Indian railways commits to generate 1000 MW by the coming year and 5GW by 2030
Post the 2020 budget, Indian railways highlighted their vision of installing ground mounted solar on railway occupied land alongside railways tracks. The Indian railways have targeted to generate 1000 MW by 2021.
This vision was stressed upon to reduce railway costs in the future and become self-sufficient by 2030. Also, with the availability of 50,000 hectare land pool, Indian railways have the potential to generate 10 GW of solar electricity.
