Solar Power Usage in Agriculture and financial assistance -reg
I am deadly against the PV panel technology as even the NASA and its associate nations are not happy with the same PV panels for their space station and its expansion where the efficiency is highest one. The efficieciency off PV in ropical zone along with arid and semi-arid zone is hardly 150Watts per square metre subject to conditions; [ A ] the panel must be always right angle to solar days [ B ] the panel must be totally dust free [ C ] the panel must be below 18 deg. Celsius at all time. All is in balance ! ! ! More over we Indians are so backward to manufacture neither the amorphous nor crystalline silicon indigenous way along with PN junctions too.
I am keen to use Solar Heat, where I am assuming that Solar Heat is Nuclear Power available to mankind free of all costs and safe too. Solar Heat is not a Renewable but Permanent Source and no question of sustainability having a potential of at least 250 TW by considering only 10% area of Arid and Semi Arid of Mother Earth is used for utilisation.
As far as the Global Warming is a concern, there is no any other way than to utilised Solar Heat directly like in cooking, in Ammonia Absorption system-cooling, in heat processes or to convert it in Electrical Energy & there is no comparable solution. I am not claiming that this is the unique way as far as the Global Warming is concerned, the way is plantation of trees like Pongamia Pinnata & Buchanania lanzan both are having importance in the human life the prior one is directly substitute to diesel by simple additive of High Explosives of say 1% & latter as rich food value, which are suitable for Arid and Semi Arid Zones.
