Development of Solar Power Tree An Innovation that uses up Very Less Land and Yet Generates Much More Energy from the Sun Rays by SPV Method


Energy and pollution are the present burning questions. So, there is an impending demand of an alternative green power. Solar, as believed, is the only major alternative in comparison to other sources of available renewable energies. For absorbing the sun solid silicon-crystalline photo-voltaic (SPV) method is the best. SPV panels are laid on structures at tilt angle. SPV is a land consuming system. Scarcity of land is the greatest crisis of the earth. Solar Power Tree is invented for installing PV-modules on a tall pole-like structure with branch- like panels and takes only 1% of land than conventional SPV layout.
