So­lar City

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

is a beau­ti­ful city in the In­dian state of Gu­jarat. It will now be­come a ‘So­lar City.’ On an ini­tia­tive by the Su­rat Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, rooftop so­lar power plants will be in­stalled in house­holds, ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions, shop­ping cen­tres, in­dus­tries and com­mer­cial es­tab­lish­ments, en­abling them to gen­er­ate power on their own. Gen­er­at­ing their own elec­tric­ity, con­sumers will be able to feed un­used elec­tric­ity back into the grid and they will be com­pen­sated for it. This will also re­duce monthly power bills man­i­fold. For set­ting up a one-kilo­watt rooftop so­lar plant, each house­hold is be­ing pro­vided with a 40 per­cent sub­sidy from the gov­ern­ment.
