You can sell your own electricity at Gujarat…

Gujarat: If you have a rooftop of 1,000 sq ft, you could earn Rs36,000 a year, and that too for the next 25 years, by allowing a developer to use your rooftop for setting up solar power panels.

In a first of its kind project, the state government of Gujarat has approved installation of 5 MW of rooftop solar power generation capacity in the state capital. The project would see investments in excess of Rs50 crore. “The capacity will come up on roofs of residential, commercial and government buildings. The rooftop owners will receive Rs3 for every unit of power generated,” DJ Pandian, principal secretary, energy & petrochemicals department, said.
