The installation of solar panels was announced earlier this year.
However, it now seems that the electricity generated by solar panels can only be used for toll stations, not for street lights for maritime traffic.
Charging operators for offshore connections say they will be able to install panels in the next three years. -6 months.
Jayant Mhaiskar, general manager of MEP infrastructure developer, a fee-paying operator, said: \"Our concession period has started from October 7, 2017. Under the concession agreement, we will install solar panels in the next three to six months.
\"Mhaiskar adds,\" Under the licensing agreement, the electricity generated by solar panels will be used at toll stations during the day and at night, and we will have to use normal power connections because we do not have power storage facilities in India.
The goal of MSRDC is to reduce electricity bills, while promoting central government initiatives to promote solar energy and reduce carbon footprint.
