100% rural electrification no measure of power connectivity; ailing discoms, unreliable supply larger problem, says survey
The survey found that mere access to the grid electricity doesn't ensure that rural customers can actually use electricity. High dependence on diesel generators and rural household consumption remaining much lower than national residential consumption are all telltale signs.
It can be fixed to any surface — laptops, cars, even buildings — for power, including shade or indoors.
Haryana farmers to get 44,000 pending tube-well connections in next six months; Khattar pushes for solar energy

Coal on its way out as rising costs make production unviable; renewable energy sources much better, cheaper option
Nearly a hundred years after the first coal-fired thermal power plant was installed in India, the outdated mode of generating electricity now seems to be on its way out as renewable sources are gaining ground as the preferred option.
India has committed to source 40% of its electric capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.
The innovation puts solar heat-to-electricity generation in cost competition with fossil fuels.
The national capital aims to generate 2 GW of rooftop solar power by 2025, the report claims.
