Process Of Solar Thermal Energy.....
Pros and Cons of Solar Thermal Energy....
Cons: ~toxic chemicals are used to clean the surface of semi-conductors
~silicon dust is produced which is harmful if inhaled
~turbines/solar panels take up a lot of space therefore, it limits the use of land
~the limited use of land destroys wildlife habitats and degrades soil quality
~uses a lot of water (600 gallons of water are used to generate 1 megawatt of electricity)
~manufacture of solar power plants results in the emission of greenhouse gases and other pollutants
