Greenpeace is calling on the telecom industry to focus on managing its energy and carbon by substantially shifting its power generation for network operations to renewable sources, and to proactively advocate for economy-wide policies that combat climate change and increase the use of renewable energy.

Thanks for the Info. I agree with Chaitanya and Samir.

Mobile operators should go for wind energy and solar energy which is feasible.

Also State Government should charge fee to Telecom towers that operates on diesel.
