What is the major reason for the development of solar energy in India despite its high potential? Say the achievement and issues faced and how to overcome.

Structure of answer:

  • Introduction (Facts and statistics related to solar energy production in India).
  • What is the scope of producing solar energy so high in India?
  • Reason.
  • Achievements.
  • Issues and concern.
  • Way forward.
  • Conclusion (Singnificance).

Key points:

  • India has tremendous scope of generating solar energy.
  • The geographical location of the country stands to its benefit for generating solar energy.
  • The reason being India is a tropical country and it receives solar radiation almost throughout the year, which amounts to 3,000 hours of sunshine.
  • While solar panels are considered a form of clean, renewable energy, the manufacturing process does produce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Additionally, to produce solar panels, manufacturers need to handle toxic chemicals. However, solar panels are not emitting toxins into the atmosphere as they’re generating electricity.
  • When fossil fuels are used to create electricity, they produce harmful gasemissions that affect the safety of air, water and soil.
  • In contrast, solar energy produces no pollution. The sun’s power offers an unlimited source of energy that does not strip the landscape or harm the ozone layer.
