Solar Energy

by: Mataya Eklund

What is it?

Solar energy is energy that we get from the sun. With new advances in technology we are capable of using this energy as an alternative for fossil fuels. We already have cars and other devices that are completely powered by the sun. Hopefully in the near future, these devices will become available to the common public.

Pros

  • cleanest energy to use
  • effects on the environment are minimal
  • sustainable alternative to fossil fuels
  • sun generates an abundance of energy to use

Cons

  • we are still inventing new ways to use this energy for a variety of things
  • same dangerous components as electronics
  • we wouldn't need to trade resources and oil with Middle East countries

My Opinion

I think that solar energy should be used and that we should keep inventing new devices that make it more accessible to us.
