Advantages of Solar Energy
Solar energy is the newest and most cost effective way to satisfy the daily energy needs of human beings. There are many useful applications of the solar energy in day-to-day life, with many advantages over traditional and the conventional sources of energy.
Solar Energy Is Abundant
Solar energy is everywhere, it’s abundant and we’ll practically never run out. Even in mid winter we are blessed with a moderate amount of natural daylight, It might not be sunny everyday but we still experience radiation from the sun and it is this which can be gleaned for our own renewable energy purposes. Thus the need for finding a long lasting energy resource is over!
Solar Energy Is Free
Solar energy is completely free. Sure, there is an initial capital cost but once you have made the investment, the energy harvested from the sun costs you nothing. No one will be sending you a bill for sunshine. No more spending enormous amounts of your salary to satisfy your energy requirements.
Solar Energy Is Cost Effective
While solar photovoltaic are still relatively expensive, the technology is growing rapidly as is production – as a result the costs involved are coming down and is now cost effective. Solar hot water panels have been greatly improved in recent years and with lower cost, payback times for domestic systems can no be as short as five years. As coal, gas and oil prices continue to rise, solar energy will become a viable alternative. It’s secure. We live in uncertain times and we are increasingly relying on our fossil fuel supplies coming from areas abroad over which we have little or no control.
Solar Energy Is Clean
Solar energy is clean. It is a clean alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear power and it will never run out. It’s silent. Solar power can be captured anywhere without creating noise pollution that might otherwise disturb your neighbors and wildlife. It works wherever the sun shines. It doesn’t matter how remote, solar can generate energy where no other form of power can be obtained. Thus, there is no danger of damaging our already damaged environment, further and you can be part of the Green initiative, Lower your carbon footprint, and save our planet from harmful greenhouse gases.
