Solar panels will now be needed to be installed in all such buildings which will help in reducing the burden on the Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation (Tangedco).

A PV system can be constructed to virtually any size based on requirements. Solar is an environmentally friendly energy source and has less maintenance costs. Learn more about solar PV systems and Grid interactive rooftop solar PV systems
