Why do we need to pay more for Electricity?

Isn’t it bad enough that we are paying so much money for electricity.. even when it is not 24/7 and there are frequent power cuts that the distributors are trying to get a 60% hike ok’d by the Delhi government. I think if government gives subsidies on CFL bulbs and energy efficient appliance and everyone is forced to use them there would be ample of power for the city. Government should also promote solar energy and put a buy back grid in place where excess of power generated by any house hold or establishment can be sold to the grid they by lowering bills. This is already being done in many western countries… so why not in India?
