Did you hear Elon Musk just said that he’s putting solar panels in roof shingles?
Yes, did you know solar energy is the supreme source of energy?
Consumers can put solar panels on their roof and get the electricity they need from it. They can also get solar panels that are made to look like roof shingles, called solar shingles or photovoltaic shingles.
There can be large solar farms built in the west that can produce lots of energy because they get sunlight all year round, and it doesn’t precipitate as much. People can also have their own solar panels.
Solar energy emits no pollution! It is clean because it does not burn any fuel.
Solar energy is a quiet source of energy so it can produce energy without trouble in commercial areas.
Solar energy will never run out. The amount of watts of energy from the sun that strike earth is about 1.74 x 1017 .
The sun produces enough energy to power the whole world.
They seem practical, but solar panels are very expensive.
After they are installed, it is cheaper to go fully solar. After using them for about 10 years, solar panels cutting costs from buying electricity catches up to the installation costs.
Much more energy than we think is due to the sun. Fossil Fuels we burn are from plants that grew because of the sun millions of years ago.
Wind is because the sun heating the atmosphere changes the air pressure and that produces wind. The sun causes evaporation that comes down as rain and helps hydropower.
