There is a huge gap in demand and supply ratio, where demand has surpassed the present supply capacity. Further concern of Global Warming have prompted world community to search for new, safe and long lasting source of energy. SUN is an eternal source of energy and would last for millions of years. The solar radiations reaching earth can be converted to electrical energy and thus contribute in meeting some part of the estimated power need.
India alone will require more than 90000MW power by year 2030. India's current electricity generation is overwhelmingly dependent on coal based thermal power generation. The other major sources of electricity generation are natural gas & non-hydroelectric renewable sources. The share of renewable energy sources in India's electricity generation mix is higher than the world average of about 5%.
Solar Energy - It's a choice with many benefits
Capture free sunlight using Solar-energy systems and convert into usable power.
Solar energy can be used to heat and cool your home, but it has almost no impact on the global climate. By comparison, electricity generated by power plants produces carbon dioxide emissions that scientists say pose serious threats to the environment.
While nonrenewable energy sources like oil, gas and coal are becoming increasingly scarce, the sun's energy is limitless. Wherever sunlight shines, electricity can be generated.
- It can reduce your utility costs.
Having a system that creates solar energy means you use less electricity and hence you will be able to reduce the cost considerably.
- It increases your energy self-reliance.
The more sunlight harnessed by the system, the less electricity you need from your utility supplier.
- It can also increase your home's value.
An investment in a solar-energy system may improve the value of your home, thanks to its ability to lower the cost of heating and cooling.
The sun has been around for billions of years and is likely to burn on for billions more to come.
