As we all know that solar energy comes from the sunlight and we’re converting it into electricity by using some technologies. This includes solar thermal energy, solar heating, photovoltaic, molten salt power plant, solar architecture, and much more.
We will consider some advantages of solar energy.
You can use the solar power systems to make some money with the energy available from the sun free of cost. You can construct your system on your rooftop, generate electricity and sell the excess power after taking care of your household needs. In some cases, you need not build the system yourself; you can lease your land or rooftop to the solar companies to install the solar system on their own. A joint venture with such companies may also be thought of.
It is abundant
As we all know the sun will be around a lot longer than other fossil fuel resources. Also, the basic elements that we use to build solar cells will be available in abundance.
It is Free
Solar energy is available free of cost. Though we may have to incur the initial cost of installation of the solar system to convert solar energy into electricity, once the investment is made and sunlight is available, we can continue to produce electricity. There are no recurring costs.
It is earth friendly
Solar energy is environment friendly because it does not release any harmful items such as greenhouse gases; carbon dioxide etc. into the air to pollute the environment.
It is reliable
Since there are no moving parts in the solar power system, is highly reliable. Since there are no moving parts in the system, the maintenance will be very less. The intensity of sunshine may vary from place to place but as long as sunlight is available, electricity can be produced using PV cell.
