NFR marches towards achieving its ‘Go-Green’ Mission, Generating 6747 KWp of solar power through installed plants

N. F. Railway in line with the policy of Indian Railways is steadily progressing to achieve the target of net zero carbon emission by the year 2030. In an endeavour to further minimize the dependence o­n fossil fuels, the Northeast Frontier Railway is adopting various steps to generate more and more green energy by installing Roof-Top Solar power plants in service buildings and other installations spreading across the zone.

Under the ‘Go-Green’ mission, 146 stations and other service buildings under N.F. Railway have already been fitted with solar roof top panels generating6747 Kilo Watt Peak (KWp) till April, 2024 which in turn will save 47.05 lakh units of power. The service buildings and other installations in the state of Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Tripura, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya & Nagaland are in the list contributing towards the solar power generation with roof top panels. Division wise, Katihar, Alipurduar, Rangiya, Lumding and Tinsukia are generating 657 KWp, 426 KWp, 925 KWp, 1035 KWp and 207 KWp of solar power respectively for their day to day use. The Headquarter complex of NFR at Guwahati is also contributing to the generation process with 1497 KWp. The two workshops at New Bongaigaon & Dibrugarh are also having 1000 KWp each installed solar power plants.

During the recently completed Financial Year 2023-24, 18 stations and other service buildings of Assam, Tripura and West Bengal have been fitted with solar roof top panels generating 609 KWp. In the Alipurduar, Rangiya & Lumding divisions 20, 220 and 369 locations respectively have been fitted with solar roof top power generating panels. Major railway stations like Dhupguri & Falakata under Alipurduar division, Agartala & Sabroom under Lumding division and Dhalaibil, Niz Chatia, Niz Borgang, Sorbhog, Patiladaha, Bijni, Dhupdhara, Rangjuli & Singra under Rangiya division were fitted with the solar panels.

NFR is committed to maximise the use of solar energy for meeting its energy requirements. This will help in meeting day to day power needs of stations and other service buildings. Apart from being environment friendly, this leads to the savings of precious expenditure for the Railways and foreign exchange of the country.
