How can solar energy solve the energy problem to some extent in India? Give your opinion



Many of India’s energy problems could be solved by solar energy in the following ways:
i. India is a tropical country and hence there are immense possibilities of tapping sunlight by installing photovoltaic cells which convert sunlight directly into electrical energy.
ii. Solar power plants can be established in various parts of the country which will minimise the dependency of rural households on firewood and dung cakes.
iii. By installing solar panels on the roof of the buildings, trapped energy could be used to provide hot water in bathrooms and for lighting the lobbies.
