Of this 30 GW objective, 20 GW would supply the state's power demand and 10 GW would generate power to be exported to other states. The state also announced an INR10 billion ($146 million) rooftop solar scheme, granting subsidies of up to 40 percent of the cost of 3 kW rooftop systems and 20 percent of the cost for system up to 10 kW, says the article.
