Stimulating the future of solar energy with its lightning-fast technology innovation: Sova Solar Limited
When Paris talks were drawn to close with an agreement signed by the countries to curb down their emissions so as to contain the global temperature rise to Co2, maturing the renewable energy resources has come under the spotlight with solar energy marking its entrance as the loftiest on the global Power Industry’s portfolio. The concerns towards a green and renewable energy source have led to the widespread acceptance of Solar Energy and development of the solar technology on a much larger scale. About 70% of India’s electricity generation capacity comes from fossil fuel. India is mainly dependent on fossil fuel imports to meet its energy demands. India’s alarming fossil fuel imports to meet the soaring energy has created the demand for a sustainable shift towards the renewable energy resources to achieve independence from expensive energy providers.
Earth’s breathing things bank on a powerhouse positioned 93 million miles away, the sun. Till date, humans have been fortunate to capture some of the sun’s energy that falls to earth, converting it into usable power for a variety of practical uses. Solar panel technology has also come a long way with increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness. India’s solar power sector too, has ventured a good start in 2018 driven by state, central and private players committed to renewable energy production and increasing the percentage of clean and renewable energy in country’s power portfolio. Understanding the Global Demand for a Green Energy Source and a responsibility towards the future, Sova Solar Ltd. (formerly called Sova Power Limited) ventured out its journey in 2008 with the manufacturing of Cost-effective High quality solar Photovoltaic products for both Grid Connected & off- Grid Power Products like Solar Pumps, Solar Street Light etc.
Mushrooming as a differentiator
“It is our duty to make people aware of the present scenario and encourage them to shift the focus to the renewable sector. If we want a green world, making it livable for many more days to come, solar or renewable is the final hope for us.”
