Abstract: Electricity generation is the process of generating electric power from different sources of energy. Nowadays electricity is very important to run each and every appliance. So, it is a big task how to generate electricity with cheaper cost to fulfill the electricity demand of the consumers. The dependence on fossil fuels, the need for reducing the carbon emissions associated with energy use and the prospects of developing a new and innovative technology sector, make solar energy increasingly attractive, However higher cost per unit of electricity is the major drawback that have held back this energy source. In India, Nuclear power holds the fourth position among the different resources of electricity, presently there are 19 nuclear power plants in India which generates 4,560 MW (2.9% of total installed base) and 4 such power plants are in the pipeline and would be generating around 2,720 MW. India’s contribution in the fusion development is done through its involvement in the ITER project. This paper examines the comparative study on solar and nuclear power plant in India.
Keywords: This paper examines the comparative study on solar and nuclear power plant in India.
