Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) of Maligaon-headquarter is all set to make all railway stations 100 per cent LED-lit by March 31, 2018.
‘It is a huge initiative to provide energy-efficient lighting which will eventually greatly help in conservation of environment. This will also lead to an annual saving of Rs 67 lakh per year in the energy bill of the NFR,’ said Chief Public Relations Officer of NFR Pranav Jyoti Sharma.
He also said that there are 534 stations in the NFR zone and of them 101 stations have already been made 100 per cent LED-lit.
According to a report on The Assam Tribune, NFR has already commissioned many rooftop solar power plants over railway establishments, in another initiative towards harvesting clean and green energy. ‘These plants are producing around 980 kW of power for official use. More such solar power plants are in the pipeline throughout NFR,’ said Sharma.
