The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has become the first Metro system in the country to procure solar power on Renewable Energy Service Company (RESCO) basis as an interstate open access consumer.
The DMRC on Monday signed three power purchase agreements and a coordination scheduling agreement for a 25-year period with Rewa Ultra Mega Solar Limited (RUMSL) — a joint venture of Solar Energy Corporation of India (SECI) and Government of Madhya Pradesh — Solar Power Developers (Mahindra, ACME Solar and Solenergi) and MPPMCL.
