Primarily this project aims to educate and explain people about the emerging solar field in India .
Humans are realizing need of Renewable energy sources.
Global warming and Rising Oil prices have added to the need.
India needs Renewable energy option more than ever and has the potential .
Rural development is easy and can be undertaken on large scale by the government.
To emphasize on the use and development of various solar products.

An individual PV cell typically produces between 1 and 2 watts of Power. TURNING SUNLIGHT INTO ELECTRICITY
Three types of Cells:
Cytstalline Silicon (c-si)
Amorphous(thin film)( a-si) medium cost
Organic Cells (Foldable)
The stand-alone system (a) uses battery storage to provide dependable dc electricity day and night. Even for a home connected to the utility grid (b), PV can produce electricity during the day (converted to ac through the power conditioner Balance of system

Sun and the City Hot water: Magarpatta City, a township in Pune has installed 5,262 solar plates on its apartment blocks for Rs 10 crore. The system saves 1.06 kWh of power, amounting to cost savings of Rs 4.27 crore a year. Residents are charged 15000 extra for the system Powerful colony: A colony in kolkata The roof of each bungalow is actually an array of 16 PV modules of 125 W each, making a 2 kW system.

Moser Baer, the largest Indian company engaged in the manufacture of PV cells, is at the top of Indian efforts to harvest solar power. Made in India Moser Baer and The Barefoot College are at opposite ends, but they’re both doing their bit to spread solar technology. The Barefoot College in Tilonia, Rajasthan, run by an NGO, is emerging as a hub for solar systems manufacture, installation and training
The poor can’t pay Rs 13,520 in one go for a 35 W solar home lighting system. But they can pay Rs.200 a month
Nearly 76 million rural households in India don’t have access to electricity.
Solar power has proved very successful through standalone SHS (Solar Home Lighting system) or mini grids in such places.
Solar Cookers and Water heaters are more successful here.
With Daniel and Matthew's new catalyst, homeowners could use their solar panels during the day to power their home, while also using the energy to split water into hydrogen and oxygen for storage. At night, the stored hydrogen and oxygen could be recombined using a fuel cell to generate power while the solar panels are inactive MIT Reasearches on new Storage options for Solar
Solar Cars!! The new solar car, called Eleanor can run all day at a steady speed of 90 kmph. It uses 580 silicon solar cells that generate 1,200 watts . This power is stored in a 32-kg Li-ion battery. The NUNA 3 .The then fastest Solar powered car (Australia)
