Video | June 7, 2013

Hundred people on 25 stationary bicycles pedalled hard in the Delhi heat to 'Switch-on the Sun'. It was World Environment Day and a first of its kind bike-a-thon to show that the people of Delhi want renewable energy to power their homes. It was an exemplary example of people power.

To add to this there were motivating beats from the Delhi Drummers and talented beat-box artists that kept the spirits high throughout.

Depending on other States for electricity is not going to end Delhi's power crisis. Greenpeace has been campaigning in Delhi, asking the Chief Minister, Sheila Dixit to implement a policy that allows people in Delhi to use renewable energy to generate power.
