3. Are there other benefits from having solar panels?
Yes, by reducing Indian dependency on electricity generated from coal, we not only reduce CO2 emissions, we also reduce the demand on water that power companies require to generate this electricity. Currently 130 billion litres of drinking water is used just to generate coal-based electricity.
This allows people who make the smart solar choice to enjoy the advantages of electricity even when the electricity is out due to bad weather conditions or some other reason.
