Are solar panels on greenhouses a good idea?

One of the main attractions of Solar PV is its ability to provide us with a distributed source of power.

Owing to this, one can find solar panels on all sorts of places. Some of these places you would never imagine – like, on a donkey, I am serious!

But there are less exotic and really useful places where solar panels can be put up – one of them is greenhouses.

Having solar panels on greenhouses is a good fit once you consider all the aspects – the space is available, even the water for cleaning panels is easily accessible as the greenhouse plants need watering too, and so on.

So, is it any surprise that solar panels are sprouting up on a good many greenhouses.

    There are many advantages that solar energy has to offer over traditional sources of energy like coal and oil. Not only it is completely renewable but is also protects the environment. Here are some of the advantages of solar energy. The primary disadvantage of solar power is that it obviously cannot be created during the night. The power generated is also reduced during times of cloud cover (although energy is still produced on a cloudy day).
    However, you can maximize the power restoration by using better quality power generator there are many solar power generators in Indian market except the one which I am using and which can be trusted for durability and quality will be Cyber Power solar energy generator. It comes with the features like quick charging technology, automatic switch over and built in solar charger and controller.
