Solar Panels replace Diesel Generators in India

The constant fall in solar panel prices claims a prominent victim: Diesel powered generators. Electricity produced by solar panels is now about half the price compared to electricity produced by a Diesel generator. Consider noise and pollution reduction and you can easily see why a new and potentially huge market for solar panels is emerging in India. A quarter of a billion Indians don’t have access to the grid, which delivers electricity for about half the price of a solar panel – if it delivers at all. Given the frequent power cuts, solar power may soon even become a better option for people on the grid.

Brightnews! The advantages of solar panels are obvious and if announced further price cuts for solar panels materialise, they will all but replace diesel generators in a short matter of time and soon even starting to replace the unreliable coal powered grid. This is bright news for consumers having access to a reliable and cheap energy source, solar panel manufacturers and countries investing in the solar industry and of course for the environment reducing pollution and CO2 levels in the atmosphere.
