Solar Energy or Solar Power plant in India has been proven a huge success during the last 10 years, especially when no one imagined, India has become a country to produce the ‘Cheapest Solar Energy’ on the planet.

By technology itself, the solar power plant has an advantage over its other Renewable energy counterparts like Wind, Hydro, etc. As there are no moving parts, which attracts lower maintenance costs post installation, faster to install due to lesser complexity in the transportation of components, lesser skills require due to the simplicity of the installation, and many other plus points.
