Oceans are dying, animal and plant species are disappearing by the hundreds every day, and the times are openly calling on the world to switch to an alternative fuel. A fuel that provides both the reliability and ease of use of fossil fuels. Auto manufacturers have decided that battery cars are the future. But even this has its own drawbacks.
How then would it be to use something that is perhaps the most abundant source of energy: the sun? Solar energy has been around for some time but is not yet accepted by the general public. Looking back, India’s solar industry is at an exciting turning point. The nation wants to promote the sun as a viable energy medium. And some companies take responsibility for doing it.

The industrial revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries was the start of many changes that govern the world around us today. Besides urbanizing people and accelerating economic growth, it gave us the internal combustion engine, something that changed the world in many ways. For all the convenience that fossil fuel-powered machines bring, there is still an ethical conundrum to it. All of this comes at a cost: nature. The effort these companies are making to make solar energy more usable and accessible is indeed laudable. Without harmful effects on nature, solar energy certainly appears to be the power of tomorrow.
