Pros and Cons of Solar Energy
Solar energy is a clean, renewable and domestic source of energy that reduces the amount of pollution in the air, and comparing this to the other, cheaper sources of energy like coal, oil or gas, all of which give off harmful gas emissions, solar power sounds like a lot better option
The solar energy business also creates a lot of jobs that can be available. “Money invested in solar power creates 2-3x more jobs than money invested in coal or natural gas."
An example of a short-term disadvantage of solar energy is the cost. All the equipment is very expensive to own, and much much more expensive than traditional energy sources. It’s said that the system will eventually pay for itself in about 2-5 year depending on the location in which it’s set up because it will ultimately reduce the electrical bill. This is a short-term disadvantage because the problem will solve itself within a few years.
