Germany’s Merkel visits fully solar-powered subway station in Delhi

German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited a subway station in Indian capital New Delhi on Saturday (November 2) which has the largest rooftop solar plant in the city powered by a German company’s panels.

Dwarka Sector 21 Metro Station is capable of producing over 500 kilowalts per day and all the basic operation of the station was supported by solar power only. 

Earlier in the day, Merkel said Germany will spend one billion euros ($1.12 billion) in the next five years on green urban mobility projects conceived under the new German-Indian partnership.

Delhi has aimed to become world’s first 100 percent solar-powered subway network by 2021. Currently, more than 60 percent of Delhi metro network’s power is solar. India is investing a large sum on solar power innovation.
