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 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.
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 energy is a very useful energy source to contribute to solve the issue of human induced climate change. Solar energy is always going to be the most reliable resource because it is always going to be available. With an energy source like this one, that’s environmentally safe it satisfy the entire plants energy needs.
The photovoltaic cell has enabled the use of the renewable energy source leaving no carbon footprint in the environment. The conventional energy is produced by various methods such as thermal power, hydroelectricity, nuclear power, geo thermal and hydrogen fuel cells. But they are costlier than PV energy and produce pollution. The Photovoltaic power generation in the solar panels uses a large number of solar cells. There are wide ranges of material available for the production to make the solar cell.
The main reason solar energy is getting so big is because of the advantages of the use of solar energy. The main advantage of solar energy is that the power source is infinite unlike fossil fuels which are limited. Scientist currently predicts that in the next forty to fifty years fossils fuels will expire. Also solar energy is cleaner, rather than fossil fuels, solar energy doesn’t give off pollution and also is water efficient. Nuclear power plants and gas power plants use up so much water to cool the plant down, solar panels however doesn’t need water for anything.
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.
Solar energy systems are ready for more use across the world. Solar energy will help the environment and help people save money. Solar energy helps in many different ways but, there is more out there to catch the flaws that solar has. Solar energy has been used for a while and people need to realize that there are better options than just purely solar; one of these options is better because it has more reliability, a lower cost and a higher rate of energy production. Solar energy works very well; it
Luckily, there are many means alternative energy sources to conserve the earth's limited natural resources. Solar, hydroelectric, wind and geothermal energies are the alternative energy sources that will be used in the feature, so that consumers won’t rely on the earth’s natural resources as much they do now. As the world continues to grow and have need for energy, applied science will discover more alternate energy sources to be used in the future. Works Cited Energy Story.

I believe this is only one of the many ways the results of my experiment can be implemented in real life. As I demonstrated, specific liquid mediums can be used to increase the efficiency of conventional solar cells by as much as 6%, just by implementing something as simple as a layer of aqueous solution above the solar cells. Applying this promising strategy can transmute solar panels into a viable, attractive, ‘clean’ energy source, helping to preserve our planet for posterity - since as in John Audubon’s words, “...the world is not given by our fathers, but borrowed from our children.”
