The Need for Solar Energy


Ever wondered what’s going to happen when all the energy resources mined from mother Earth’s womb gets depleted. The energy resources like coal, uranium, fuel, gas etc. is on the verge of collapsing due to the ever increasing demand. It’s a well known fact that the over increasing demand has led to discovery or invention of higher energy sources like the nuclear energy. Those mined and artificially created energy sources are a great threat to the nature and the mother Earth. The use of these energy sources cause havoc in the natural habitat system. The pollution level which has greatly escalated during the last few years is alarming for human civilization. This could even lead to lack of proper living conditions for humans. The pollution caused by these energy sources can be seen on each and every part of the mother Earth right from air, water, land and soil.

Hence a need arises for a suitable and convenient energy source system which could be more environment friendly and beneficial to the ecosystem. The solar power which comes from the sun every day is one such kind of energy source. The solar panel fitted on large areas and even at houses creates a better and healthy way of generating power.

The solar power is the best energy source which comes free directly from the sun every day.  The electricity generated from such solar panels is cheaper as compared to the electricity from other sources. The solar power is safer to use and there is no problem of blackouts especially during festivals and peak summer.

Our country India has to provide energy to its 132.42 crores population. Though energy is derived from other sources but it is very difficult to sustain all the population. Therefore the government of India has led down major projects in solar energy plants. Today there are more than 10 solar energy plants running in India which has given electricity to millions of houses. This step is very much appreciated because not only it has given India an alternative energy source but it has given employment to a lot of people.

Thus here are some of the ongoing solar power plants in India.

  • Kurnool Ultra Mega Solar Park, Andhra Pradesh
  • Kamuthi Solar Power Project, Tamil Nadu
  • Bhadla Solar Park, Rajasthan
  • Sakri Solar Plant, Maharashtra
  • Welspun Solar MP Project, Madhya Pradesh
  • Dhirubhai Ambani Solar Park, Rajasthan
  • Banasura Sagar Dam Floating Solar Power Plant, Kerala
  • Pavagada Solar Park, Karnataka

It is very much important to conserve energy and at the same time preserve it. The abuse of mining energy is definitely going to ruin our natural habitat. The use of other artificially created energy source is a great concern for the human civilization. To comprehend the need of the hour it is of utmost importance to look for a sustainable, environment friendly, safer and cheaper means of energy source. The solar power provides this entire requirement for such an energy source.
