The cost of solar energy can be expensive. The first cost is the equipment (solar panels, etc.), which can cost from 10,000 to 15,000 dollars. Someone also would have to pay for installation and permits, which can cost from 5,000 to 8,000 dollars. There might also be some maintenance fees which can vary depending on any damage.
Solar panels can be set up on the rooftops of buildings.
Solar panels can be installed in fields or backyards.
Some cars are solar-powered.
