Abstract: Solar Photovoltaic (SPV) is a novel technology to harvest solar energy as and when we talk about replacing the conventional grid electricity. The degree of development of a country is measured by the amount of energy used by humans. Energy demand is increasing due to population, urbanization and industrialization. As a result conventional electricity needs to be replaced with non conventional energy resources so as to save the environment from pollution due to increased number of unwanted gases and dust particles in the air. Harmful gases like COx and SO2 in the environment are affecting the Air Quality Index (AQI) and making it difficult for humans to breathe. Solar Energy is a clean and green solution to improve the AQI of the earth. In this research we study and analyze the performance of a grid interactive SPV plant installed at Academic Block-II, Integral University. In this regard, we measure the performance ratio for 4 (four) months. The effect of shading on the PV panel is reviewed due to deposition of dust particles and bird feces.
