Installation of solar panelsIn a bid to curb power expenditure and provide better services to passengers, solar panels will be installed in all the railway buildings, informed Union Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu while laying down the foundation stone of a solar power plant at the Amritsar Railway Station.

The plant, to be set up at a cost of Rs. 8 crores, is expected to save Rs.1.40 crore for the department, which can be further used for facilitating better services to its passengers.

According to Prabhu, the Union Government is focusing to produce solar energy from waste materials that would reduce the expenditure of the Railways on electricity.

The minister also said that the Railways has already successfully tested train to run at the speed of 180 kilometers per hour and work would now initiate to start high speed train between Amritsar and New Delhi.
