Indian Railways launches first solar-powered diesel electrical multiple unit train

Post by Seva Lamberdar on Fri Jul 14, 2017 1:34 pm

Indian Railways today launched first solar-powered DEMU (diesel electrical multiple unit) train from the Safdarjung railway station in Delhi. The train will run from Sarai Rohilla in Delhi to Farukh Nagar in Haryana. A total of 16 solar panels, each producing 300 Wp, are fitted in six coaches.

The cost of these solar panels, manufactured under 'Make in India' initiative, is Rs 54 lakh. This is the first time in the world that solar panels are being used as grid in railways.

The train has a power back-up and can run on battery for at least 72 hours. ...........

This is disgusting. In a Sikular country with the second largest population of monomaniacs, they should only use petroleum for powering trains so that the gulf cousins (actually, masters) of India's pieceful can make a lot of money and fund piece across the globe......
