With more than 300 clear sunny days and solar insolation of 5-7 kWh / m2, solar power presents a large harness able energy source for a power-starved country like India. Solar power comes across as an option to bridge the ever increasing gap between the demand and supply of energy, since the dependency on finite fossil fuel needs to be brought down. Further the usage of fossil fuel poses a significant threat to the environment and if not checked will severely affect the climate. To address these issues, the Prime Minister of India released the National Action Plan for Climate Change (NAPCC) in 2008 under which is the prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) which aimed at setting up 22 GW of solar power by 2020 in a phased manner
Almost one-thirds of India's power is sourced from imported commodities such as foreign coal and diesel. With rising problems over Coal production in India and ever-rising oil prices – the current rate of increasing imports to reduce the energy deficit is not only unsustainable but also harmful to economic factors. Almost 3/4ths of all diesel used in generation is imported in our country. Solar can be an important weapon against this rising trends of imports and is poised to replace conventional sources of energy as India's solution to its power crisis.
Such as Diesel and Coal are making solar energy a highly viable alternative. Variable costs per unit of diesel power generation are currently around INR 12 and only slated to rise with the rising diesel costs. In comparison, Solar Energy costs are already under INR 10, and expected to reach power parity with cheaper forms such as coal in the next 5-7 years.Solar energy is no longer alternate energy, but will increasingly become a key part of the solution to the nation's growing energy needs.
An LED product is assembled into a lamp (or light bulb) for use in lighting fixtures. LED lamps have a lifespan and electrical efficiency that is several times better than incandescent lamps, and significantly better than most fluorescent lamps, with some chips able to emit more than 100 lumens per watt. The LED lamp market is projected to grow by more than twelve-fold over the next decade, from $2 billion in the beginning of 2014 to $25 billion in 2023, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25%)
Like incandescent lamps and unlike most fluorescent lamps (e.g. tubes and compact fluorescent lamps or CFLs), LEDs come to full brightness without need for a warm-up time; the life of fluorescent lighting is also reduced by frequent switching on and off.
LED Lights need controlled direct current (DC) electrical power; an appropriate circuit is required to convert alternating current from the supply to the regulated low voltage direct current used by the LEDs. LEDs are adversely affected by high temperature, so LED lamps typically include heat dissipation elements such as heat sinks and cooling fins.
LED's are more power-efficient than compact fluorescent bulbs and offer lifespans of 30,000 or more hours. Incandescent bulbs have a typical life of 1,000 hours, and compact fluorescents about 8,000 hours. Our LED Lights maintains output light intensity well over their lifetimes. LED lamps are available with a variety of color properties. The purchase price is higher than most other, but the higher efficiency may make total cost of ownership (purchase price plus cost of electricity and changing bulbs) lower
