The Long Island Solar Farm (LISF) is a 32-megawatt solar photovoltaic power plant built through a collaboration including BP Solar, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), and the Department of Energy. The LISF, located on the Brookhaven National Laboratory site, began delivering power to the LIPA grid in November 2011, and is currently the largest solar photovoltaic power plant in the Eastern United States. It is generating enough renewable energy to power approximately 4,500 homes, and is helping New York State meet its clean energy and carbon reduction goals.

Question by jajeromes: How much solar panel installation cost for a normal home in Tamilnadu, India?
I have been hearing and seeing lot of traction on the use of Solar panel for the power generation to homes. But i am not confident that the power produced from solar energy will be sufficient during the night due to the high costs in installing the solar panel for normal middle class families. As per the reviews in forums by customers i could see there is a lot of maintenance costs involved and to get more power we need to put more panels (like 1KW or more). Please advice and share your thoughts so that i can review and find a best possible solution for the solar panel installation in my home?

  3. For a perfect GREEN Home:
    install solar panels that can deliver just enough for your consumption. Also compliment it with a wind energy set up, connected to it : 1- 2.5 lacs. but it is almost once in a lifetime investment [of course the batteries are to be replaced every 5-6 yrs, now their costs vary a lot, but are sure to come down !. If you get the wind mills hooked to your gym/ pedal/walk system, you save a lot more. We are lucky to have good sunlight & winds too , most of the year. Recently Germany has been using Solar to make as much as 20 % of its annual use
