You probably have a lot of questions about solar energy, and we probably won’t probably be able to answer all of them, but we’ll give you some basic information, so that you can get a better idea on how solar may or may not be useful to you in everyday life. Keep in mind though there are both positive and negative facts when you’re thinking about solar energy.
Let’s start with the answer to a basic question, “What is solar energy?”
Solar energy comes from the light of the sun, not from heat. So, even cold climates can produce power as long as the sun is shining.
One of the most interesting and positive facts about solar energy is its huge potential. The amount of sunlight that comes to earth in a single day if it could be harnessed will supply all the electricity needs for every human being on the planet for an entire year.
Also, solar is a renewable resource that will last for a couple of billion years. We’re never going to run out of it.
One of the most important facts about solar energy is it doesn’t pollute or generate carbon dioxide, which a lot of people believe is changing global climate, and not for the better.
There’s also no noise pollution for solar energy. Electricity is created silently when silent hits the solar panel.
