About Solar Panels Market

Solar panels are used for the generation of electricity. When the sun’s rays fall on a solar panel, they cause the atoms of the solar panel’s material to get heated, which knocks the electron out from the atom. When a conductor is attached to the solar cell, the circuit is completed, which leads to the generation of electricity.

The utility sector accounts for a majority of the global demand for solar panels, with more than 65% of the market share. Tendering scheme has been the most widely used mode of procurement in the utility sector and is the single biggest reason behind the growth of this sector.
