"SOLAR ENERGY IS NOT ABOUT FASHION,
IT'S ABOUT SURVIVAL."
Solar energy is radiant light and heat from the Sun that is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, photovoltaics and artificial photosynthesis. Due to the growing energy crisis faced by the world, the team has come together with a motive to gain advancement in the solar domain and spread awareness regarding its plausible benefits to our society. The World Solar Challenge provides us a platform to showcase our product at a global stage, competing against teams from across the world.
