where we can t supply energy through conventional way. More efficient techniques are need to be innovated in future as a first step and at very economical way as a second step.Conclusion ‡ This is new technology to world and In India also we have very little technological base to use solar energy. ‡ But initial cost and long payback periods are major hindrance in the implementation for that cheap way of production and more incentives policies need to be implemented. . ‡ If we able to overcome above problems solar energy will only be sufficient enough to meet the demand of whole country and using decentralization we can make it available at rural level also.
