KARIMNAGAR: Are you fed up with the frequent increase in petroleum products prices and serpentine queues at filling stations?

Here is some good news. Now you can use solar energy to run your two-wheeler and in the process bring down your monthly bill. This will also help in reducing environmental pollution.

A Class IV employee of the district Ground Water Department, T. Srinivas, popularly known as `Solar bike Srinivas, to his colleagues, has redesigned a battery-operated moped to run on solar energy.

He named the vehicle as Electro solar moped and said that the 48 watts battery after charging with solar energy for about 4 to 6 hours would travel a distance of about 50 km.

After consuming one unit of power, the vehicle would run for a distance of 50 km.
