Solar energy is one of the useful resources, which do not impact on the environment. Today, some consumers use fossil fuel, which is nonrenewable and cause pollution, rather than other sources. Fossil fuel can make the air unhealthy by releasing carbon dioxide; therefore, solar energy is great because it is renewable energy and it is replaced. Solar energy as the same other sources has many uses, some of them can be dangerous especially if consumers use it in a wrong way and some of them can be useful and helpful for the environment; therefore, there are environmental advantages of solar energy. Overall, solar energy is an alternative source and can be used in many ways: to protect the environment since it is non-polluting, can be used in remote areas, and can be used in many devices.
Here are some advantages that solar energy provides to us. First of all, it is better for our environment because utilizing solar energy doesn’t cause pollution. Solar energy is so clean; leaving no carbon dioxide in the air or harmful emissions. It is clear that solar energy reduces our dependence on the non-renewable energy sources. This is one of the most important steps to overcome the global warming crisis.
Although renewable energy can be expensive to build, it has less environmental damages in comparison to non-renewable energy. Besides the natural resources such as sun, wind, water and hydrogen, we also have geothermal power, and biofuels as renewable sources. First of all, solar energy is the energy produced when the sun heats the solar panel. Thus, when the sun heat the panels, it produces electricity. Solar power produces energy during the day and can storage energy for the night.
Solar energy is created and used through the use of photovoltaic cells that collect the suns energy and then convert that energy into a useful form like electricity. As one would think when first asked about solar energy and photovoltaic cells, there aren't many environmental impacts associated with it. The o... ... middle of paper ... ...there isn't any negative impact on the environment due to renewable energy resources, but based on all the evidence, it seems that non-renewable resources such as coal, natural gas, and petroleum, all have a much more negative influence on the world around them.

A common system like this is the solar-wind-diesel hybrid system. These systems work in conditions that both would be used but, maybe not at the same time. For example, “Where wind speeds are low at times and when Sun shines brightest and longest, or when the wind is strong but less sunlight is available” (Salkalachen 1250). This says that when one system is not reliable, the other will cover its mistakes. The “engine generator powered by conventional fuels such as diesel” mentioned earlier is to fill any gaps of power when the two systems are at a low (Salkalachen 1250).
This can limit how much power will be saved for the future. One of the most important advantages with solar power is that is creates absolutely no pollution. Solar panels require very little maintenance is required to keep the solar power running. The number of advantage that is associated with using solar power it ways out the disadvantage. Solar energy is a very useful energy source to contribute to solve the issue of human induced climate change.
All renewable source power stations do not produce emissions that pollute the environment. The damage done to the environment is quite small compared to that of non renewable powered stations. Using renewable energy reduces pollution, conserve land, and to save money. Renewable energy conserves natural resources by reducing the need for non - renewable energy. Some natural resources are renewable, meaning they can be replaced, and some are not.
Despite generating electricity with fossil fuels for years and years there is a much better way that does not harm the environment. Using Solar panels does not produce any carbon dioxide unlike fossil fuels that “produces huge volumes of carbon dioxide, which is a gas that influences the global climate” (“Solar Power Vs. Fossil Fuels”). Having the choice to get power in a new way that saves the environment, home owners should not have to think twice about trying solar. In fact if home owners collect some amount of watts per hour on Monday, that will not reduce the amount of solar energy a home owner can collect on Wednesday or any other day that week. They can always keep collecting the power.
This shows the underutilized capacity of solar energy in attaining sustainable developments. The photovoltaic systems do not release greenhouse gases in the power generation process. Moreover, they can convert sunlight into electricity even in conditions of low solar energy. This proves that solar power can be available for use in domestic or commercial buildings even on cloudy days. In contrast, the indirect conversion of solar energy through CSP techniques involves the generation of heat energy and using the resultant steam to operate power generators (Hirschmann 36).
This type of energy has not always been used to its full advantage and now it can be. Solar energy is the obvious choice for the United States to start using more because of its financial benefits that lead to reduced electric bills and jobs. Also solar energy is an asset because of the environmental services it allows. With having no byproducts and no waste solar energy leads to a more green world. The supporters of solar energy are very widely spread from state representative to the makers of the solar panels.
