Solar Power

The pros and cons of solar power.

Solar power

Solar power is the process in which the heat from the sun is converted into energy for things like heating and lighting.

Pros

Solar power is pollution-free and is a clean source of energy! Using solar power would lessen the amount of fossil fuels and polluting materials used. The sun has an infinite amount of heat, and will never stop releasing energy for us to use. That is, until it burns out... which could take a while. Solar panels typically take in more energy than the building needs two times over.

Cons

One major con of solar power is that it is pretty expensive. Between the expense of creating solar cells and the expense of creating plants full of solar panels. Also, some areas of the world are not exposed to direct sunlight all day, which would cause difficulties in how much energy could be accessed.
