Abstract: ‘India has set an aggressive target of 175 GW of installed wind and solar energy capacity by 2022. India is blessed with high solar insolation all through the year in most parts of the country. With such energy harnessing potential, solar installations are gearing up to speed. Attempts are being made to set up solar panels in fields and on roof-tops of buildings. It is also interesting to consider other real estate options for setting up solar installations to generate power. Some of these aspects will be discussed in the talk.
