Air Pollution : The Solar Connection !

It has been estimated that Air Pollution causes a huge drop in the generation potential of the solar PV plants installed in the North India region. Yes, while the hot and sunny conditions do make it feasible for solar PV plants to be installed in this part of India, research by several agencies has shown that the dusty conditions during certain months of the year, and the smog like effect mostly prevalent in winter months, reduces output and generation by as much as 35% causing a big drop in overall yield of the solar PV plants
