Owing to the debilitating effects of fossil fuels and other conventional sources on the environment, solar energy has become the most viable and sought after alternative.
The demand for clean electricity, especially, generated using renewable energy sources is on the rise. Here again, solar energy has emerged as the clear frontrunner in these conversations and is rapidly proving itself to be the lifeblood of the future.

In fact, in India, with dense cities and limited agricultural area, availability of land has become a challenge for developing solar power plants.
