Solar grace

Dear Editor,
Apropos the article, “India on world stage?” by Dr. D. K. Giri (Features, April 5, 2018), solar is a clean and safe energy and in this point it scores over thermal and nuclear variety. Our country is blessed with abundant solar grace. So, we need to use this renewable energy as far as practicable.
All schools, colleges, offices, buildings should be encouraged to use their rooftops to tap solar energy to generate power to meet their demands. Switching over to solar energy in a phase manner will go a long way to check power cut, power theft, thermal power plant pollution, nuclear power plant hazards, centralization of power generation, depletion of fossil fuels, expenditure in electricity and global warming.
