Abstract

Owing to the rise in the price of fossil fuels and natural gases, there is an increase in cost of power generation. In order to generate eco-friendly electric power without polluting the nature or leading to emission of greenhouse gases, this paper focuses on energy production via solar power systems. It is feasible due to the availability of solar panels at reasonably lower cost. The influence of environmental parameters like dust, temperature, humidity and wind speed, along with the mining site factors in generation of solar energy is reviewed. It is finalised that by maintaining clean environment and cooling operations, these adverse impacts could be reduced.
