Solar Power – Advantages And Disadvantages By J.R. Ferrara

There is something misleading about the name “Solar Power.” All forms of energy is derived from the sun some way or the other. Without the sun, there would be no life on earth, as the sun provides the energy that sustains all plant and animal life. Like all technologies and systems, solar power, too, has its advantages and disadvantages. The advantages of solar power, by far, outweigh its disadvantages. The Advantages of Solar Energy Solar energy saves you money, period. Once you recover the cost of installing the equipment, there is no running cost as the energy from the sun is 100 percent free. Since production of solar energy does not require any fuel, you aren’t affected by its supply and demand, or the ever-increasing price of gasoline. Solar energy is clean, renewable and sustainable, and so protects the environment in a number of days. Unlike gas, coal, and oil, the supply of solar energy is renewable, though only for the next 4.5 billion years. Unlike more traditional forms of electricity generation, it doesn’t pollute the environments with carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide or mercury. We would be healthier if more people get their energy from solar power. Since solar energy doesn’t release any pollutants into the air, it does ‘ot contribute to global warming. Rather, it contributes to the decrease in emissions of greenhouse gases. Solar power systems can operate independently, without any dependence on a power or a gas grid. Not only does solar energy reduce your electricity bill, it is available at all times and is not affected by power outages. The solar energy systems are practically maintenance free. Once installed, they can last for decades, with no recurring costs. They are silent in operation and do not create any offensive smells. If your electric needs increase, extra panels can be added to the existing system. The Disadvantages of Solar Energy The main disadvantage of solar energy systems is their initial installation costs, as the semi-conducting materials are expensive. To achieve a good level of efficiency, solar panels require a large area for

installation. The location of the sun also affects the efficiency of the system, but this is overcome by installation of extra components--an added cost. Pollution in the air, as well as the presence of clouds, affects the production of solar energy. There is no production of solar energy at night. However, this can be taken care of with a battery backup system or net metering. Net metering is a scheme, available in 40 states and Washington D.C., through which your utility company buys the extra energy that your solar energy system produces from you, building up a credit on your account. If you need to buy some of this back, you might break even. http://www.real-estate-magazine.com http://www.tech-tips-now.com

Thumbs Up to Solar Power Advantages By Y.T. Lee

The sun not only gives us light; it also has the ability to provide us with power that may be converted into electricity. The electricity and the heat that we need in our homes can be within reach when we utilize what the sun is able to give us. There are so many solar power advantages that many people have to be aware of, proof that the sun and the power it sends are truly important, especially in this day of rising electricity bills. One important benefit of solar power is that it is renewable. It is not like oil that can be gone after a certain number of years. True, we may discover another source once oil is gone, but that source may probably be non-renewable as well. Be reminded that the source of solar power is the sun. We do not even have to worry about the sun disappearing. It may rest during the night, but in the morning, we all know that the sun will be back in the sky. Therefore, if we rely on solar power, we are sure that it will never disappear to nothingness. Another advantage of solar energy is the fact that it is eco-friendly. It does not give off polluting gases e.g. greenhouse gases. People need to care for the environment and using solar power may be a good way of protecting it. People also do not have to pay for solar power, which is another advantage. The only expenses that you may have to pay stem from solar panel kits and other materials used to make solar panels. Unlike electricity which is a utility that we have to pay monthly, panels that produce solar power are not things that have to be paid regularly. Because of this, solar energy helps us gain big savings. When extracting solar energy, people will not be bothered by a single noise. Other sources of energy such as oil and wind may have to be extracted through very noisy methods. When it comes to solar power, extraction is on the silent side, which may be viewed as another advantage. Solar cells are responsible for producing solar energy. This brings us to another advantage of solar power: just a little amount of maintenance. Solar cells, after all, are not composed of ‘moving’ parts, which means that maintenance is very little, or none at all. Tools that may produce solar power such as solar panels and solar powered lights are also quite easy to set up. This is, of course, one more advantage of relying on solar power. Solar energy, just like all forms of energy, is not really ‘spotless.’ There are also some disadvantages like the tendency for solar energy tools e.g. panels to be expensive as well as the fact that solar energy cannot be produced during the night. Solar power advantages, however, are bigger in number as compared to the disadvantages. Besides, the cons of solar power, if you will notice, can eventually be improved by technology.
