According to him, solar power is the future of smart cities. There are several projects where the main expenditure will be incurred on electricity bills. The Ministry had devised a plan to install a solar power system to link all such projects, especially lifts and escalators.

The officials have been suggested to explore the possibility of an escalator in the ongoing construction of a foot overbridge at Sanjauli, and HIMURJA would find the chance to install a solar power plant. It would reduce the power expenditure and make the escalator more viable.
