The post offices in the city are one of those buildings and places of work where the influence of British architecture still exists. However, the technology of the post offices is somehow not on par with the fast-paced world where uninterrupted electricity and internet are the basic features.
However, the post offices are all set to adapt to the modernization by adopting to run on alternative energy sources and not lose power or internet connectivity at any part of the day. The state has targetted shifting 6000 post offices in the state from using regular electricity to solar power by 2023. This process will occur in a phased manner.
The only post office in the state that is running on solar energy is the headquarters of Telangana Postal Circle at the Dak Sadan building in Abids with a 50KW peak power. General Post Office (GPO) building and Head Post Office(HPO) building at Secunderabad is also running with 50KW and 30KW of solar energy. The other government buildings are now considering switching to solar power and looking at the wide range of benefits that come along with it. Of course, a valuable contribution to reducing carbon footprint is always the most significant feature of switching to solar energy.
