Now of course, solar generated energy escalates the business, industries, homeowners, and government in terms of manufacturing and operations, reducing bills, opportunities to become energy independent owners, and more.

As a result, the demand for solar energy continuously increases which results in making India Green and leads the nation to ameliorate in the list of top solar energy countries.

According to the Wikipedia reports, the country’s solar installed capacity reached 35.12 GW as of 30 June 2020. Considering the recent year, solar PV installed figure is 37,627 MW which is 133% higher compared to last year data i.e. 28,181 MW.

Myth #1 • All solar systems keep working even when the power goes out

Only off the grid solar system and hybrid (dual) solar system remain working condition during daytime power outage. In the case of an on-grid connection system, it’s no longer functional when the system loses power, due to outage.

Final Thought: This myth is fairly wrong.

Myth #2 • Solar panels goes completely shut-off during the cloudy or rainy season

Solar owners already know-the ultimate answer, but those who don’t know, for them. Solar panels harness the sunlight and not its heat. Remember, too much cozzy temperature can lower the efficiency of solar panels, say up to 50%. Also, solar panels do not completely shut off during the cloudy or rainy season.

Final Thought: This myth has no intimate value, hence it’s wrong.

Myth #3 • Solar panels are prone to damage from wind, birds, animals, and more

Solar panels have toughened glass to prevent easy breakage. This is to say, birds dropping or standing monkeys even jumping on solar panels wouldn’t cause any physical damage. Also, the quality workmanship – mounting structure, pipes, wiring – determines the all-weather durability of your solar power system.

Final Thought: Hence, this sounds wrong.

Myth #4 • Most Indians cannot afford to own a solar power system

Many of us think that switching to solar energy is a high cost of investment, and only the luxurious folks could afford. But, this isn’t true…! Due to falling solar prices and government subsidy schemes, many Indian homeowners across different regions installed and benefited from it.

Final Thought: This myth is fairly wrong.

Myth #5 • Installing solar is quite complicated and requires a lot of maintenance.

You may collect detailed information about solar panels with your neighbour having solar panels installed on the rooftop. They can easily tell you the whole story about solar related complications and maintenance. Saying simply, solar panels come with a warranty of 25 years long and don’t require maintenance that leads you to any expenses. But, it recommends that every 15 to 30 days clean your solar panel.

Final Thought: This myth has no intimate value, hence it’s wrong.
