Madhya Pradesh gives solar power to people
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.
