New Delhi: The Delhi government is working consistently towards transforming the capital city into a Solar City.

To achieve this goal, the Delhi government will be setting up a 3 MW ground-based Solar Power Plant at Indraprastha Power Station.

Starting this activity from the Delhi Secretariat itself, the government is working in association with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

Expected to supply power directly to the Delhi Secretariat for the next 25 years, this Solar power plant is being set up as a showcase power plant.

Making it an environment friendly green building, the Delhi Secretariat shall become the first State Secretariat of the country running entirely on renewable and green energy.

Technology, the likes of the tracker mechanism, will be used to operate the plant, which will also track the movement of the sun for optimum output.

Delhi Government has also prepared a draft Solar Policy, which has been released recently for public consultation.
