There is another often overlooked socio-economic problem associated with using solar power in homes and agricultural fields. Given the high value of the installed equipment they are lucrative targets for goons everywhere, more so when they are installed in far away fields.
Indian Government should make it a priority to protect these assets and make stealing them a non-bailable offence with rigorous punishment for the guilty. There should be a registration system in place similar to that available for automobiles. Buyers should register their solar panels and always check their purchase against a database available online.
What is abundant in India? Sunshine. Solar panels are the best option for generating electricity in India. The problem with solar power is that the panels produce electricity at different amounts based on sunshine, clouds, shade etc. This problem can be mitigated by connecting the solar panel power to the national grid. Government has to give incentive for producing solar power. UK and German governments have introduced a scheme to encourage residents to generate solar power on their roofs. By this, the government or the power companies pay incentive for producing solar power. UK government is currently running a scheme by which each unit of solar electricity produced receives £0.16 per KWh
Solar Street lightning implementation in Gujarat.Government initiative to preserve the power for future use.This system will not use the power from grid or power station.
All the Government office Parking’s should be covered with solar pannels.Parking lot ought to look like this in Germany as shown in the pic. Parking shades the cars while producing free energy
Around 40% of electricity produced in India is used for Irrigation. That's a huge chunk of the pie worth optimizing. We cannot increasingly burn coal to meet these requirements.
In contrast to domestic and industrial sectors which often require a dependable and continuous supply from the grid, Irrigation can use solar and wind energy which by nature are not continuous but can be harvested in plenty. Irrigation can be effectively managed with supply only during day light hours and its reliance on Grid is sub optimal.
The key is Distributed Generation or Local Generation which minimizes losses and maximizes efficiency.
