Solar power is non-polluting. Unlike fossil fuels, using solar power does not emit any greenhouse gases – there is also no danger of it harming ecosystems through spill or degrading. These are probably the most important advantage of solar power and provides good reasons to use the technology.
The energy and heat from the sun is free, once solar panels are set up there are no extra costs to use the energy. The solar cells require very little maintenance, just the odd bit of cleaning to keep them at full output.
Solar power is proving incredibly versatile, providing power for cars, water heaters, buildings and satellites. In some remote locations, solar power is the only option for generating power.
Solar Panels have become increasingly popular are also a very worthwhile investment, as they help save on energy bills and also increase the value of a home.
There are some disadvantages of solar panels, such as the amount of sun light available in different parts of the world is considerably less; and the price of solar panels is still fairly expensive. In the future, the continued development of solar panels will see their effectiveness increase and their prices to fall, making them a real alternative for everyone.
