Solar power shines in India

Another heavenly idea, Reuters reported that India is planning to subsidize solar power plants to help develop the country's renewable energy infrastructure.

The government will pay 12 rupees (30 cents) per kilowatt hour for solar photovoltaic and 10 rupees per kilowatt hour for solar thermal power fed to the electricity grid.

All I can say is more power to them!
