Energy is a crucial input in the economic, social and industrial development of the country. The growth of world population coupled with the improved standard of living has increased the energy consumption considerably by the turn of 21st century. These areas specifically hilly, forest and tribal area, islands, in remote due to their varied geographic and demographic locations and generally have low load potential, low load factor and inaccessibility of national grid thereby making them unable to connect to the grid due to the involvement of heavy capital investment and therefore are also not expected to have power in the long run. In order to energize such area the renewable energy sources have been found to be most reliable, economic, ecofriendly and quickly installable as compared to conventional energy sources. The renewable energy sources like solar, wind, biomass, tidal etc the main sources of renewable/green power which can be used to electrify such areas in most appropriate and economic way. Out of these sources, SPV is considered reliable, pollution free and convenient power generation system.
