Clean environment is the foundation of our safe future. Traveling through the Lucknow Metro helps to reduce air pollution and noise pollution. LMRC has taken several steps to promote the clean and green initiatives of environment. With the use of regenerative breaking technology in metro trains, electricity is saved up to 38 percent. Not only this, energy efficient LED bulbs have been installed at all Metro stations. Every metro station is designed in such a way that it is totally dependent on natural light during the day and electric light is required only after the sunset. The efforts made by the company to conserve water have reduced water consumption by 40 percent. LMRC is also preparing to install 1MW of solar PV panel, which is 31 percent of its average annual power consumption.
