Everyone is looking for a better way to have power. Solar power has very dependable technology, with little to no maintenance. It can bring finical savings by making more power a home owner may need and you can resell back the power company. Lastly help the environment by having no waste so less pollution and takes up unused space by putting them on to the roofs of the houses. In the end Home owners should try looking pass the initial price of Solar panels and see that this is a great way to produce energy that does not produce any carbon foot print.
Why Build Solar? The question is, “why utilize the solar energy for our homes that is given from an existing power source for free?” A simple answer could be because the source of power in the long run is for free. The truth to the statement is nothing is for free because taking advantage of the sun does require some effort, but there certainly isn’t as much effort compared to the energy sources that we use today. More importantly there aren’t any severe consequences left for the environment during the process. The more learning and the more realization of how fast the quality of life is depreciating environmentally conscious citizens look to others observing ignorance for failing to come to the same standards of view.
Solar energy is obviously not the “elixir” capable of solely eliminating all of the worlds environmental problems. Be that as it may, the technology is valuable, and getting increasingly competitive with all other conventional sources of energy. Sure it does use up some non renewable resources in the making, but a worthy investment nonetheless, if you want to ensure your future here on earth. I believe that with the way things are moving, that solar energy and renewable resources are and will be the way of the future. From the average household, to continents, solar energy can create jobs and generate revenue.
Regarding to solar power, Mistry claims that although the solar power does not generate pollution, it has a lot of costs. To built solar panels with a photovoltaic equipment has high costs. For instance, a photovoltaic system just for a home can cost around $35,000 (Kumar, 2012). However, if our goal for the future is to get a healthy environment, switch fossil fuels for solar power might be the best choice to achieve that goal. According to Kumar (2012), Solar power is a clean and renewable energy so, it decreases the dependency on fossil fuel and also reduces the air pollution.
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.
The Solar Water Heating method is more successful than the photovoltaic method because the photovoltaic method converts the light directly into electricity. This means that the photovoltaic method cannot store the electricity and is only able to function when there is sunlight2. So for the Solar Water Heating method if it was an overcast, rainy day, you would probably still have enough electricity to power all the essential requirements as the electricity would’ve been stored. A solar water heating system costs about R20000 so the cost is initially high but in the long term it is very efficient as your electricity supply is free. The government could also consider investing in a solar furnace.
The idea that the sun itself could be a cash cow has those from environmental engineers to scientists trying to find ways to harness its immense energy. Students from across the world as well as accountants use solar energy more than anyone else, calculators are the most popularly used solar instruments in the world; also going overlooked are swimming pools and attic fans. Solar energy is a renewable natural source of power that can be used to refuel vehicles but can also heat and light homes; which can potentially enable users to not rely on public utility companies to supply power. The creation of solar energy requires little maintenance. Once the solar panels have been installed and they are brought up to maximum efficiency there is little else to do to ensure they are in working order.
Solar power has its advantages but most of the people the people think the solar panels are expensive disadvantages, but it’s actually an advantage. Solar power starts saving money from day one. Electricity is one of the key things we need to clean up and solar power is the way to do so. (Shanan 1-4) Solar energy is a visible form of alternative energy. Solar panels capture energy from the sun’s rays and convert it to electricity.
With the advanced technologies in the modern world, the general population in different countries will benefit from this scientific discovery without incurring huge costs at the domestic and commercial platforms. Other subsections that should adopt solar power systems include academic institutions and government agencies. In addition to facilitating economic developments, the maximum utilization of solar energy will help in solving the problem of global warming since it does not utilize fossil fuels.
Secondly, the low efficiency may improve by the innovation of technology which are the technical and design improvement on photovoltaic systems, storage systems and concentrated solar power systems. The above findings demonstrate the need to mitigate problems with using solar power not only because it is an alternative energy but also because solar power has huge long-term benefits as an endless, sustainable and clean future energy. Therefore, this report recommends that government need more promotion in future to support and boost the research and development of solar energy system which also need the collaboration of the scientist on technical issues. A further recommendation is public encourage in order to widely utilize solar energy in the world.
