Up to 70% subsidy for solar power users in Himachal Pradesh

In Himachal Pradesh, people can have access to new and clean renewable source of energy in the form of solar photovoltaic lights (SPV) at 70 per cent subsidy, as per the

guidelines of the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). 

People opting for grid connected rooftop solar panels/power plant are being given 70 per cent subsidy, and surplus power would be further sold to HPSEBL at the rate of rupees five per unit, which would also add to the income of the individual, besides using free solar power.

Virbhadra Singh said that though hundred per cent of electrification had been achieved by the state, there were few off-shore habitations in very remote and tribal areas which were facing a low voltage problem and untimely disruptions. Solar power was the only alternate for electrification of these left-out hamlets, which will provide uninterrupted power through decentralized solar photovoltaic applications.
