Answer the following questions in about 120 words.

Why do you think that solar energy has a bright future in India?

(a) India is a tropical country. Most of the areas of India receive abundant sunlight. Because of this fact, solar energy could be a legitimate source of energy.

(b) We have technologies such as Photovoltaic which can convert sunlight directly into electricity. This technology could be used to provide electricity in rural areas where there are huge open lands and sunlight can be tapped efficiently.

(c) With our environment deteriorating day by day, many environmentalist favour use of solar energy to cook food which will in turn help in reducing consumption of cow dung and firewood.

(d) Solar energy can be used in multiple ways which adds on to its popularity. For instance: the largest solar plant of India located at Madhapur, near Bhuj (Gujarat) uses solar energy to sterlise milk cans.
