"We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy – Sun, Wind and Tide." Power or electricity is the most needed thing to be used by the every human being and th e power generation is the first step to be able to subsequently use it. Power generation in india is being done through the fossil fuel‟s like coal,petroleum and natural gas. Fossil fuels are diminishing on a higher scale each and every single day and even the use of fossil fuels are creating the very bad impact on the environment. Providing energy security and energy independence to billion plus population is also on the government agenda. It has been established that to meet power demand, India needs to have a basket of energy resources. Solar energy that is abundantly available across the country could be logical choice. Solar Photovoltaic technology which has the inherent advantages of being modular and solid state, is one of the best technological opt ions for distributed generation close to the point of consumption. Roof mounted solar PV systems can play an important role in augmenting the power generation capacity. Solar energy including thermal and PV is second largest renewable energy source after wind energy. The price of power generated from solar plants installed today is at par with or lower than the commercial tariff for consumers. The cost of solar power is on the decline trend while the cost of fossil fuel based electricity is increasing day by day. It is further important from country perspective to avoid any wastage of grid power by usage of inverter and battery set, simultaneously creating additional generation capacity at a point of consumption.
