Solar energy is energy derived from the Sun’s radiation. The Sun is a powerful source of Renewable Energy and provides the Earth with as much energy every hour as we collectively use in a year worldwide. It is important that we continue to harness and increase our use of solar energy (and other clean, renewable energies) as fossil fuels become depleted, expensive, and fall out of favor with their consumers.
As the global demand for energy grows and conventional energy resources become increasingly costly to extract, people are looking to the power of the Sun. Solar has been growing exponentially for the last 20 years, while the price of photovoltaic (PV) cells has dropped. PV cell prices are 99% lower now than they were in 1976. It is no longer the cost-prohibitive energy source it once was.
By adding each KW solar energy we are going to reduce our carbon foot print by one ton every year. as global warming is posing a real threat to our planet it is our duty to bring down the usage of fossil fuel as much as we can. India is a power deficit country having huge potentiality to ad solar energy to augment its requirement for economical growth.
Solar energy industry is more matured today and can able to create huge amount of local jobs for less skilled people and also help us to save precious foreign exchange.
