A fleet of four electric three-wheelers powered by solar energy was deployed for the use of the visitors to BMICH recently.

These electric three-wheelers, named as E-trikes are part of a Korean Energy Agency’s assistance to Sri Lanka through the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority of the Ministry of Power and Energy.

The project was designed to use the existing solar PV installation at the BMICH to operate an electric vehicle charging station. The four E-trikes will be initially used to provide in-compound transport to visitors, as the BMICH is a facility which spans a large extent of land.
