Q. What is the scope of Solar power in India

India is densely populated and has high solar insolation, an ideal combination for using solar power in India. Due to its geo-physical location, India receives solar energy equivalent to nearly 5,000 trillion KWh/ year, which is far more than the total energy consumption of the country today. West UP region on an average has 300 to 330 sunny days in an year and is perfectly suited for Solar power generation. Solar energy is the perfect solution to tackle the power shortage issue in India. With ever reducing costs of solar technology, Solar power is fast becoming the ideal alternative to DG sets and is on path to Grid parity somewhere around 2017.
