Solar Energy. Directly or indirectly the sun is responsible for all of the energy on earth. Direct solar energy is a clean, renewable energy resource that is easily vast enough to provide us with all of our energy needs.
Although solar panels or solar lights are costly, money is saved in the long run.
Sunlight is converted to energy through a variety of technologies.
Solar panels are not cheap and because they are constructed from expensive fragile materials that must constantly be maintained and often replaced.
Since each photovoltaic panel has only about a 40% efficiency, single solar panels are not sufficient power producers.
About one-third of sunlight is reflected back into space, and some is absorbed by the atmosphere.
There are several problems with solar energy production that negatively impact our environment.
