Greater Visakhapatnam municipal corprn office to run on solar power soon

Visakhapatnam: If everything goes according to the plans, Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) will be the first civic body in the state to use solar energy in its office and schools.

The civic body in association with AP Eastern Power Distribution Company Limited (APEPDCL) and New & Renewable Energy Development Corporation of AP Limited (APNREDCL) is likely to take up a 111KV-capacity Rooftop Solar Energy project in the city soon.

GVMC embarked on the solar power project as part of its efforts to develop Vizag as a smart city. The project will come up in the RK Beach area, which was voted by the people as their choice of ‘existing area improvement’ last year.

Preliminarily, GVMC proposed to take up the Rooftop Solar Energy at its main office at Dwarakanagar, its schools and primary health centre at China Waltair. All these come under the RK Beach area of Vizag Smart City.

A few days ago, APNREDCL examined the viabilities of the project. According to its report, the 111KV capacity Rooftop Solar Energy project has been finalised which will include 100KV capacity RSE at GVMC main office.
