A fleet of four electric three wheelers powered by solar energy, was deployed for the use of visitors to the BMICH recently. These electric three wheelers, named E-trikes, are part of a Korean Energy Agency assistance to Sri Lanka, through the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority of the Ministry of Power & Energy.

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