Solar water pumps are similar to traditional electrical pumps except that they run on solar energy and not conventional electricity or fossil fuel. The process involves generating electricity through the use of solar panels, which then powers the motor to pump out the water. Currently, 70% of households are still dependent on agriculture for their livelihood (Business Standard). In fact, the agriculture sector accounts for 18% of India’s GDP (Economic Times). It is evident that the demand for a sustainable method...

Using solar energy coordinated by IOT devices can be the solution we need. This means centrally monitoring a smart network of outdoor LED lights. Many locations in India still don’t have adequate street lighting and the main reason for this is the cost. Outdoor lighting with the conventional grid is not only an extremely expensive infrastructure it also accounts for half of a city’s energy budget. Using solar energy coordinated by IOT devices can be the sustainable solution. While, one small...

Solar rooftops is recognised as the fastest growing sub-sector in India. However, if our country’s ambitious target of 175 GW of renewable energy capacity is to be met by 2022, the solar installation process must be accelerated. Some of the major road blocks discovered in surveys of a sample was the low awareness about solar power and SMEs hesitance to instal solar rooftops due to the perceived performance errors. The economic Times has brilliantly outlined the importance of solar rooftop...

Solar energy has become quite popular in India with the help of the government, through subsidizing solar products. One beneficial product is the solar water heater that further assists in reducing our reliance on conventional power sources. A solar water heater system uses solar energy to heat water. It requires people to install this system on their terrace or some open space where it can be under direct sunlight, which in turn will help it, heat the water and store it in...
