The Indian Government has realized the potential of solar panels and has already begun the production of solar panels in most of the states in India. 

Myth 2: Installing solar means cutting off from the power grid.

Fact: There is a convenience of installing an off-grid solar energy system. Usually, most of the solar panels are in the grid system. It allows a consumer to use solar energy produced by the solar panel in the day-time, and when the sun is down, the house can withdraw the energy from the grid. With the help of net metering policy in your respective state, you can use the electricity from the grid for your requirement and pay for what you use.
