So, how much do you pay for your electricity? Well, if you are in Delhi, the starting price per unit is a little above Rs 4. And every unit that you ‘pay’ for actually undoes your bit towards the environment as it accelerates a vicious cycle: more coal has to be extracted from mines that fracture the Earth, this coal is then burnt in a process that pollutes the environment, and the power produced is used to run some appliance that contributes towards global warming. The only way to get out of this cycle is to literally stop digging deep and look upwards, harness the power of the sun, especially because it now makes great economic sense.
