Mad­hya Pradesh gives so­lar power to peo­ple

Down to Earth - - THE FORTNIGHT - THE SHIVRAJ

Singh Chouhan govern­ment has ap­proved the Mad­hya Pradesh Re­new­able En­ergy Pol­icy 2016. With this, peo­ple in Mad­hya Pradesh can pro­duce their own elec­tric­ity through so­lar pan­els on rooftops. If pro­duc­tion is more than the house­hold re­quire­ment at any time dur­ing the day, it can be fed to the grid. Con­sumer con­tri­bu­tion to the grid will get paid by means of ad­just­ments and sub­trac­tions in bill pay­ments. The govern­ment will also pro­vide sub­si­dies on so­lar pan­els, pro­vided they are man­u­fac­tured in In­dia. Sub­si­dies will be 30 per cent for do­mes­tic con­sumers, 45 per cent for govern­ment build­ings and 50 per cent for cer­tain govern­ment un­der­tak­ings.
