Re: Solar energy in India

You can still use solar but in conjunction with a wind turbine. However wind turbine is only effective at large industrial scale. See here: http://www.engineering.com/ElectronicsDesign/ElectronicsDesignArticles/ArticleID/9556/Rooftop-Wind-Turbines-Are-They-Worthwhile.aspx where they discuss the meri...

Re: Solar energy in India

I don't think you understand what the 1000 W/m^2 is. As I said earlier, with clear skies is the maximum. Total power per unit area is actually going to be less. It is not going to increase 20%. There is little variation for an increase. Also, I never discouraged putting solar panels on residential ...
