Solar energy production and net metering.

The central government and Supreme Court is working proactively to reduce environmental pollution. So also various state governments.
But all of a sudden, some state governments like Tamilnadu, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and UP have introduced legislation to restrict or eliminate solar net metering, and have implemented gross metering, where the consumer pays about thrice the amount for electricity he buys from the grid, compared to what he sells to the discom.
This practice has been introduced solely to gain additional revenue by discouraging clean solar generation. On the other hand, vehicles older than 15 years has to pay a “green tax” for causing pollution, whereas the government promotes energy derived from fossil fuels over clean sustainable energy from the sun. So much so, some states are mulling imposing a fee or tax on power produced from the sun for private use.
People who have invested in solar power are now at a disadvantage. It is high time some coherent and viable long term decisions are implemented across the country. more

State and central Govt will show interest in introducing solar power and reduce dependency on coal & gas based power. However, Coal lobby, Thermal power generating Cos and associated interested parties will block above introduction, so long coal is available. So keep on discussing. more  
Govt should encourage Solar Energy Production and give Incentive to those who have spent lot of money on Installing the Equipment. more  
This is the basic Responsibility of each Government to serve Livelihood and Industrial Needs of the VILLAGE TOWN CITY REGION STATE AND TH COUNTRY . more  
Corrupt politician has a problem if all of us start producing clean energy without greasing his palms and moreover they have cuts in electricity bills that we pay. more  
Solar energy needs patronage from government. It is the best environment friendly activity. more  
Life is changing. Environment will be good and pollution will not be seen. It's easy to use. In future solar energy is coming with full forces. Cleanliness will be maintained. Congratulations more
