Overweight solar-powered rickshaws pulled of roads in India
Ironically, this project, costing the authorities Rs.1,500,000, was undertaken to reduce the labor involved. Rickshaw-pullers have complained that the batteries drained after 40 kilometers, afterwhich man power was required. The pullers were also required to pay theMunicipal Corporation Rs. 500 every month, an act that fell heavy ontheir pockets. Using lightweight solar modules available nowadays mighthelp reduce the load and the backache of rickshaw-pullers in India.
