      Comment: Top 14 produce 87% of world's PV (in which Grid-Connected AC - Residential/Commercial installations dominate. Japan produced 569 MW of PV out of a total 1055 MW produced by top 14 producers in the world. Inter Solar 2005 revealed that till 2007, due to shortage of raw silicon, the growth might slow down , which will have impact on cost/Watt of PV Panels or Cells, and would seriously hinder the availabilty to consumers.
       
      Distribution of Usage in Year 2004:
       
      U.S. - Off-Grid .......................................................30-MW
      World - Off-Grid (Rural)....................................... 80-MW
      Communications & Signal .....................................80-MW
      Grid-connected - (Residentail /Commercial AC)  66-MW
      Off-Grid Commercial ............................................ 65-MW
      Centralized (>100kW AC) .....................................20-MW
      Consumer Products ................................................70-MW
      Note: India produced 31.1 MW of PV products in year 2004 (more in Part II).
