Abstract: Solar energy is radiant light and warmth from the Sun that's harnessed employing a range of ever-evolving technologies like solar heating, photovoltaics, solar thermal energy, solar architecture, molten salt power plants and artificial photosynthesis. Wind mill power is created from the changeover of wind energy into another functional form of energy using wind mills. For power to be created, the blades of a wind mill must first catch wind and be moved by it. Wind is infinite that it is the cheapest and most useful power source. Since the 12th Century, wind mills have become useful to break up corn and push water to the field. At present wind mills have become a means to generate electrical energy. There are a considerable number of individuals who are now relying on the electricity-generating wind mill since it is safe to the environment and it lessens their electric charges. It is an important source of renewable energy and its technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar counting on how they capture and distribute solar energy or convert it into solar power. Active solar techniques include the utilization of photovoltaic systems, concentrated solar energy and solar water heating to harness the energy. Passive solar techniques include orienting a building towards the Sun, choosing materials with favorable thermal mass or light-dispersing properties, and designing spaces that naturally circulate air. In today’s scenario solar and wind energy industry is one among the fastest developing industry around the Globe. India’s current installed capacity reached 30.071 GW as of 31 July 2019. India has rock bottom cost of capital per MW globally to put in the solar energy plants. The Indian government had an initial target of 20 GW capacity for 2022, which was achieved four years before schedule. In 2015, the target was raised for sustainable renewable energy to 175 Gigawatt to be achieved by 2022, out of which 100 GW is for solar power (including 40 GW from rooftop solar), targeting an investment of US$100 billion. With about 300 clear and sunny days during a year, the calculated solar power incidence on India's acreage is about 5000 trillion kilowatt-hours (kWh) per annum (or 5 kWh/yr.). The solar power available during a single year exceeds the possible energy output of all the fuel energy reserves in India. The daily average solar-power-plant generation capacity in India is 0.20 kWh per m2 of used acreage like 1400–1800 peak (rated) capacity operating hours during a year with available, commercially-proven technology. People are somewhat hesitant to adopt the rooftop solar plants as they occupy huge roof space. Also, thanks to the mindset of Indians, they're reluctant of giving away their roof space which is occupied in various ways around the year. This Problem can be solved by placing solar panels at different public spaces. Many Public Places go unutilized even when they carry a large amount of Solar Energy Generation Potential. This study is focused to find out the Feasibility of Installations of Solar Panels by making the use of various Public Places. This will in turn also help in meeting India’s solar energy
