Capital Development Authority (CDA) has planned to build Pakistan’s first solar-powered metro terminal that will generate 100 MW.
Strategy has been created to provide residents of Rawalpindi and Islamabad with state-of-the-art public transportation from Peshawar Morr to the New International Islamabad Airport. Solar panels will be installed on the bus terminal.
According to officials, 70% to 80% of the metro track work has been finished. In April of next year, the solar-powered terminal will be completed. The CDA aims to build a railroad that connects Peshawar Morr and Islamabad’s New International Airport. The solar-powered bus terminal will be finished in April of next year.
The solar-powered plant will be capable of producing 100 megawatts of electricity. The electricity generated by these panels will be channeled into the Water and Power Development Authority’s main grid station (WAPDA).
The power will subsequently be transmitted from WAPDA’s grid to the individual metro bus terminals and bus stations. At a bus station near Peshawar Morr, solar panels will be put on the sheds designated for bus parking.
