In many developing cities and the villages there is no power grid. There, a further advantages of the solar energy systems can be used: their decentralized availability and utility. Thus, village power supplies can be installed far away from the large towns without an overland grid being necessary.
Solar energy systems lasts for over 20-30 years producing energy for free of cost. When maintenance is needed, the cost is very low since use of modular components, composed of numerous individual solar arrays. Even if any cell is damaged, the rest can typically continue to operate without affecting the process.
Solar energy is free of any emissions and with only few environment effects and hazards. An important advantage is in the fact that there are practically no fuel costs. Increasing the uses of renewable sources, such as solar energy, allows us to replace the carbon-intensive sources and reduce the global warming emissions.
Solar energy is derived from the sun’s radiation. The sun is a powerful source of energy, and this energy source can be harnessed by installing the solar panels. The solar energy it provides to the Earth for an hour could meet the global energy needs for one year. However, we are only able to harness only 0.001 percent of that energy.
Solar energy has become a trending topic nowadays when talking about renewable source of energy. While it is being widely criticized for being expensive and not very efficient, solar energy has proved to be extremely beneficial – not only for the environment but also financially.
Because of the increasing higher demand, the technology has been improved considerably & has been complemented by solar battery storage systems, turning into a more efficient source of clean energy.
