When it comes to using solar for your heat and electricity requirements, the obvious solution is to have a separate solar PV system for producing electricity and solar thermal collectors for water heating. It is not uncommon for many industries, commercial enterprises and even residential units to go for both the solutions. Now, imagine if […]Read More →

We have all heard of Wi-fi. Now, what is Li-fi, and what has it got to do with solar power, of all things? Just like Wi-Fi, Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) is a high-speed wireless communication technology. Instead of using radio frequency, light is the medium of transmission. Harald Haas, the person who coined the term ’Li-Fi’, […]Read More →
The typical solar panels you and I know are fairly straightforward – light hits the solar cell from above and generates electricity. Any light that passes on and gets reflected from the ground and hits the backside of the panel is just wasted, because the typical solar panel’s back side just has a polymer backsheet and […]Read More →
What are flexible solar panels? And more to the point, why would someone require flexible solar panels? Flexible solar panels or rather cells are an innovative solar technology that is largely at the research level currently. In conventional solar panels, the glass, frame etc. can be costlier than the PV materials used. Flexible solar cells […]Read More →
While the most common place for solar panels on a building is the rooftop, it need not always be the case. There are enough folks worldwide who would like more parts of their building covered by solar panels, so that they can get more power generated from the sun by utilizing as much as area […]Read More →
