‘Solar Comet’ Launched on Environment Day

IAS Prelims 2023

World Environment Day was observed on June 5. On this occasion, Greenpeace India flagged off a solar bus named as ‘Solar Comet’ to raise awareness about solar energy and how it can easily power an entire household.

The bus has solar panels installed on the roof that power energy-efficient LED bulbs, mobile charging points, a mixer-grinder, a refrigerator, an air cooler and an air-conditioner that have been fitted inside the bus.
