More power from the sun hits the earth in a single hour than humanity uses in an entire year!
For the entire world to be powered on solar energy, we need roughly the area of Spain to be covered with solar panels!
With only 75 days of sunlight hitting the sunniest regions of Germany, the country is the second largest producer of solar power in the world!
India, on the other hand, has approximately 300 clear sunny days and the potential to harness 5,000 trillion kWh of energy per year! This is much more than the country’s total annual energy requirement!
By 2022, India aims to power 60 million homes on solar energy!
The government intends to produce 40% of its power from non-fossil fuels by the end of 2030 – generating 175 GW of renewable power in the country. Of this 100 GW is to come from solar.
