How to choose solar companies in India?
Old habits die hard, goes an old saying. But that has to be proved wrong in the case of energy sector, at least. The energy variants that we have been using all these years, coal and natural gas, are non-renewable. Apart from that, they cause pollution and the results are here for all of us to see. A classic example of this phenomenon is witnessed in our capital city, New Delhi, almost every year.
So, we are left with little option but to swift to renewable energy sources, more specifically solar because it is clean and abundantly available. There is no noise pollution or air pollution while harnessing solar energy. It is quite versatile, as well. We, as a country, are slowly and steadily making the shift as is evident from the facts and figures.
