Solar catches dust
As a renewable energy expert I welcome some of the views expressed in the article, “India’s power mess” (May 1-15, 2013). There is no doubt that solar energy would be the future of energy, especially as a decentralised power source. The big question, however, is whether it is worthwhile for a developing country like India to go for solar power in a big way. Cheap and efficient equipment is the only way to make solar power production sustainable.
