Solar means Energy Democracy

Climate change, resource depletion and energy security
Energy and climate change are two of the issues that will dominate the next century. Right now we need solutions that can help us address both issues at once, whilst allowing our communities to thrive. There are not many places to turn for answers to these challenges and in the India we are currently being Victimized for our energy need by Systems and Governments. When many other industrialized nations like Germany are abandoning this technology to focus on a 100% renewable future.
We need solar not just because we don’t have many options left – but because there are so many positives.
Solar means an infinite clean, green energy resource
  • Every hour enough solar energy lands on the earth to power the whole of mankind’s energy needs for a year.
  • Solar photovoltaic (PV) is a reliable technology that produces zero carbon electricity for up to 50 years.
  • Solar energy provides protection against rapidly rising oil and gas prices.
  • The costs of solar PV is falling rapidly.
  • Solar PV is completely safe – it does not even have moving parts.
  • Nuclear power is expensive and there is currently no solution to disposal of highly toxic nuclear waste.
  • Solar PV is a socially acceptable technology with widespread application
  • It is modular and equally effective whether deployed on a small or large scale.
  • Solar PV is easily deploy-able NOW in large volumes.
  • Solar PV provides benefits for businesses, individuals and communities.
  • People actually like solar PV – and want to use it.
  • We can provide clean green solar energy for years to come.
Solar means Energy Democracy
PV allows us to democratise energy and distribute access to energy more fairly. You and your roof become a power station, and you are less reliant on highly inefficient and polluting central power stations.
Solar PV technology will help us to break away from dependence on a finite and increasingly dangerous fuel resource – and fast!
