India To Build "Ultra Mega" Solar Power Plant

Sounds high no doubt. Does the targets of earlier Solar realised? As far as Solar energy in India is concerned more talk and less action. One major drawback in Rajasthan is dust accumulation on the solar panels and availability of Water. In India many states like AP,MP,Gujarat,Tamil Nadu etc. experience Solar Insolation almost equal to that in Rajasthan but have other advantages. Why only Solar Projects coming up in Rajasthan? The life of Solar panels is about 20 Years. Some pertinent points have to be looked into. What is the effect of Dust on the Solar Panel? What is the effect of Sand storms like LOO on the life of Solar Panels? According to JASON DEIGN: Irradiation rates affected by particulates There are other challenges for PV in India, too. Solar irradiation data is not always great, and in practice the levels of sunlight are frequently affected by the presence of a...
