Mumbai, June 7: As part of its second anniversary celebrations, Mumbai Metro One announced it will go "green" in a big way by harnessing solar energy, switching over to LED lights and other measures, an official said here on Tuesday.

A subsidiary of Reliance Infrastructure Ltd, the Mumbai Metro One Pvt. Ltd (MMOPL) will exploit solar energy for meeting a part of its running needs, and switch over to LED (light-emitting diode) at all metro stations, its depots and administrative building to reduce electricity consumption.
