Solar Farming a Transformative Resource for India

This “free” source of electricity can be used to supply the energy needs of homes, farms and businesses. Through the use of photovoltaic (PV), concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) or concentrated solar power (CSP), sunlight is converted into electricity that can provide power to businesses, homes and drive motors. I firmly believe that to meet all its energy needs, India should diversify its energy mix by accelerating the use of all forms of renewable energy technologies (including PV, thermal solar, wind power, biomass, biogas and hydro) and more proactively promote energy efficiency. However, in this article, I will only focus on the solar farming potential in India. You can read my previous paper on “How Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Technology Can Meet India’s Future Power Needs.” What is Solar Farming? On a solar farm, large amounts of power are generated from sunlight. S...
