For a long time, solar energy was harnessed to generate electricity by laying solar panels on large tracts of land. These projects are undertaken by the power generating companies who sell it to electricity distribution companies (DISCOM) which then sell it to the end consumers with a margin. An alternative to solar parks as these large solar power plants are called, is to lay solar panels on the rooftops of houses and buildings. These solar plants are called Home Solar Systems.
