Solar Panel Efficiency indicates the ratio between output solar power and incident Sun light energy on that Solar Panel. Multiplied by 100 with this ratio, we get the Solar Panel Efficiency in percentage. Scientist already developed 40% efficient solar panel in laboratory. But in practical life we get 16-18% efficiency in quality Solar Panel. That

Solar cells represent the

Solar Panels are by default always exposed to nature. As a result they are also exposed to various elements of nature such as sun, dust, wind, birds’ feces, rain, humidity etc.  Residential solar panels placement is no different from the normal household windows.

Our lifestyles are now very much facilitated and secured  by scientific innovation. Scientific innovation has given us many products that makes our life quite comfortable. However, sometimes, these products have an adverse effect on the environment. Plastic is one such product. We use plastic in preparing comfortable and easily usable products like bottles, jars, chair,
