Abstract: Renewable source of energy is broadly classified into hydro power, wind power, thermal power
and solar power. Solar energy is one of the cleanest sources of energy, and a very good resource
for the usage of mankind. With the change in technology, mankind kept on inventing products
that can run on solar energy and trying to make maximum use of it. Application of solar energy
can be seen in many instances in day-to-day activities of life. For example, the water heaters
(powered by solar energy), street lights and traffic signals which use solar energy for electricity
input, and lot more. Solar panels can generate and store the energy for future usage. For the last
decade, solar energy, as a new source of energy, found difficulty to emerge, because of the
technology restrictions. But, with the passage of time, the electricity generated by the solar
energy can be stabilized more and can fulfil the daily needs of the households. The objective of
the study is to identify the factors affecting the use of solar energy by households and to analyze
the factors affecting the acceptance of solar energy by households. Hypothesis test was
conducted using statistical tool correlation to test if there is significant relationship between the
influencing factors and acceptance of solar energy by domestic households. The main purpose of
this study was to understand the adoption and diffusion of solar energy by households for
domestic purpose with special reference to Bangalore region. This study will help to understand
the perception of households regarding the usage of solar power system for their domestic
purposes. A survey was conducted to understand the relationship between the influencing factors
and acceptance of solar energy by individual households. From the study it was found that there
is a significant relationship between the influencing factors and acceptance of solar energy by the
households for their domestic purpose. Therefore, it can be concluded that the there is greater
influence of factors such as availability, affordability and acceptance of solar energy by the
