KSEB can be paid at the rate of Rs 3.50 Paisa per minute.In this model,the investment  has to be borne by the farmer.

       KSEB will bear the entire cost for the second model. KSEB will set up solar power plants on non cultivated lands. KSEB  will rent  the land for 25 years at 10 Paisa per unit for the electricity generated from it.3 ½ to 4 acres of land is required to generate one megawatt of electricity. The farmer can get up to Rs 25000 per year from one acre of land.For more details  contact KSEB websites.
