The traditional energy sources face a number of challenges including rising prices, limited & non-renewable supply and growing environmental concerns over climate change.
As a result of these and other challenges facing traditional energy sources, governments, businesses and consumers are increasingly supporting the development of alternative energy sources and new technologies for electricity generation.
Renewable energy sources such as solar, biomass, geothermal, hydroelectric and wind power generation have emerged as potential alternatives which address some of these concerns.
To reduce the impact of global warming, there is a need to exploit renewable sources of energy for meeting the increase in requirement. Solar power generation has emerged as one of the most rapidly growing renewable sources of electricity. Solar power generation has several advantages over other forms of renewable energy sources such as predictable generation, lower generation cost and very little maintenance etc. a
