The BBMP is in talks with a private firm to set up a plant to use energy generated through renewable sources at its buildings.
Luminous Renewable Energy Solutions Private Limited, a Pune-based firm which generates power through wind and solar energy, proposed to set up renewable energy (RE) source units at Palike buildings.
M K Narayan, a consultant with Luminous said, “The city’s climate is best suited to generate power combining solar and wind energies. At 20 metre height, wind blows at a speed of 5.5 metre per second. We can generate power through wind turbines even if wind blows at 3.5 metre per second speed.”
He said with 60 per cent wind and 40 per cent solar, 15 KW of electricity could be produced. The energy generated from wind and sun could be stored in batteries.
