The station is powered by a solar power plant and emergency diesel generators. The 160 kWp solar power plant generates around 2.4 lakh units (kWh) annually. The project is the first of its kind for railways. Funded by Persistent CSR, Sunshot built the plant in June 2016.

There are plans to increase service in the Mumbai–Pune section, lay additional track between Pune and Lonavla, increase the budget for track surveys, and construct separate terminals for suburban trains. There are also proposals to construct a new EMU terminal. It would be situated to the west of the existing station and have three lines and three platforms.
