The Union Min­istry of New and Re­new­able En­ergy has de­cided to cut the sub­sidy for rooftop so­lar scheme to half. How help­ful will this move be?

Down to Earth - - LETTERS -

It would help more to open the mar­ket for so­lar equip­ments im­ports. The equip­ment are ex­pen­sive for no rea­son. We can do away with sub­sidy on hard­ware, and give benefits on sell­ing elec­tric­ity back to the grid.

NAINA SHARMA Modi's devel­op­ment model Ap­naa haath apno ke saath is the ex­clu­sivist agenda, I guess.

JA­COB GE­ORGE A day should come when peo­ple line up to pur­chase so­lar prod­ucts in the mar­ket at the max­i­mum re­tail price. One in­no­va­tion that saves enor­mous power in light is dual pow­ered so­lar light that cab used for read­ing.

ANUMAKONDA JA­GADEESH Yes, very much. Prices are go­ing down dras­ti­cally and 30 per cent sub­sidy is no longer needed.
