Since the number of mobile users has been increased, there comes a number of new mobile operators. This accounts for the increased installation of towers. A critical mobile network consume 40-50MW (approx.) and a diesel generator consume 1MG (approx.) of diesel per day. Also a base station requires greater amount of power employed for its working in which some of its internal applications like light, coolant systems say air conditioning, fans etc., uses the major part of the power utilized. This intensifies the burning of coal which emits carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. At times the number of users for a base station may be very less especially during night time, consuming the power unnecessarily. Our approach is to reduce the intake of power by the base stations during unwanted time. This can be done by establishing communication between the adjacent towers to intimate the unused tower to remain idle or active based on the requirement. Also this approach conveys the measures taken to reduce the power consumed by the internal applications of the base station. The entire setup is under the surveillance of personal computer thereby creating an energy efficient mobile infrastructure with power saving, reduction of CO2 emission which in turn reduces global warming and successful operation of large scale mobile communication services.
