Centre makes it mandatory for power firms to buy from solid waste plants

Central government has made it mandatory for all power distribution companies to buy electricity from power plants fuelled by solid waste. This entitlement comes from the recent amendment of the Electricity Regulatory Act (2013).

As State governments will have to build plants that can produce energy from solid waste, the ministry offered to cover “20 per cent” of the cost of each plant. This money would come from the Swachh Bharat Mission.
