Solar photovoltaic power generation has achieved grid parity in a number of countries during the last decade. This revolution has begun in countries where the solar radiation intensity is not very high. Solar resource maps created by a number of agencies worldwide indicate that areas of high intensity of solar radiation suitable solar for power generation are in deserts and semi-arid zones. These regions are dusty and are subjected to both anthropogenic pollution and natural sand storms. The…
