Solar panels have two big advantages traditional source of energy. The first is that it is renewable and will never run out. The second is that its effect on the environment. While the burning of fossil fuels produces many harmful pollutants into the atmosphere and creates to environmental problems like acid rain and global warming, solar energy is completely non-polluting. Silicon constitutes as the primary element of construction of solar panels, there is very little environmental disturbance caused by the creation of solar panels. In fact, solar energy only causes environmental disruption if it is centralized and produced on a gigantic scale. Solar power can easily be produced on a gigantic scale.
Solar energy is created by light and heat which is emitted by the sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation. With today’s technology, we are able to capture this radiation and turn it into usable forms of solar energy – such as heating or electricity. Solar energy is capable of producing the raw power required to satisfy the entire planet’s energy needs. Environmentally, it is one of the least destructive of all the sources of energy. Practically,
it can be adjusted to power nearly everything including transportation with very little adjustment. Clearly, solar energy is the need of the hour & also a resource of the future.
