Did you know that India ranks among the top 5 countries that lead the world in solar panel installations? The reasons for that are many. Most businesses and industries are well aware of the numerous benefits that come with installing solar panels on their premises. These include saving on energy costs, lowering electricity bills, reducing dependence on electricity generated from fossil fuels, and reducing their carbon footprint.
