Disadvantages Of Solar Energy

There are many more advantages than disadvantages of solar energy, yet this article will cover the disadvantages of using solar energy to generate electricity.

Alternatively, you can take a look at some of the many advantages of solar power a little further down this page.

We hope the information below will be of great use to you in understanding some of the implications which solar energy can place upon us.

Disadvantages of Solar Energy :

  • non disadvantages of solar energyOne of the main disadvantages of solar energy is the initial cost of the equipment used to harness the suns energy. Solar energy technologies still remain a costly alternative to the use of readily available fossil fuel technologies. As the price of solar panels decreases, we are likely to see an increase in the use of solar cells to generate electricity.
  • A solar energy installation requires a large area for the system to be efficient in providing a source of electricity. This may be a disadvantage in areas where space is short, or expensive (such as inner cities).
  • Pollution can be a disadvantage to solar panels, as pollution can degrade the efficiency of photovoltaic cells. Clouds also provide the same effect, as they can reduce the energy of the suns rays. This certain disadvantage is more of an issue with older solar components, as newer designs integrate technologies to overcome the worst of these effects.
  • Solar energy is only useful when the sun is shining. During the night, your expensive solar equipment will be useless, however the use of solar battery chargers can help to reduce the effects of this disadvantage.
  • The location of solar panels can affect performance, due to possible obstructions from the surrounding buildings or landscape.
    So there we have the main disadvantages of using solar energy to generate electricity for our homes and businesses.

Although the negative points above may put the majority of people off, the advantages can be greater incentive over the above points.

Using solar energy to generate electricity is one of the greatest achievements by mankind, and is set for even greater things in the future.

Non Disadvantages Of Solar Energy :

There exists many different non disadvantages of solar energy related to using solar energy on a large and small scale.

You are able to produce solar power for your home through increasingly easier and cheaper methods related to this natural energy source.

One of the main non disadvantages of solar energy system for your home is the lack of pollution given off by solar panels when generating electricity.

The only pollution you could associate with a solar power cell would be the production of the cell, and transportation of the cell until it reaches your home, then maybe the use of electricity to power the tools needed while your panel is installed and maintained.

An example of a disadvantages of solar energy would be the initial cost (one of the very few disadvantages associated with solar technology).

Or you could DIY and save thousands of dollors on the initial cost and you realize the savings you could make over the coming months and years on your electricity bill. Rather than just trying to make even with your initial cost of paying contrators to do it for you.

Another non disadvantages of solar energy is that the energy source (the sun) is completely renewable unlike the source which is probably generating your current power supply.

Take a moment to think of the most likely source of the power you are using to read this article.

Advantages of solar energy also include the ability to harness power in remote locations.

This has proved a very important advantage of solar power in order to bring electricity to some of the most remote places on earth.disadvantages of solar energy

A home solar power system can make a huge difference to mountain communities where it may be hard to construct power lines in order to reach such areas.

Newer technologies have enabled us to store the solar electricity we harness though the use of solar power battery chargers. This is a huge advantage of why you should integrate solar power to influence your home power supply.

Making solar panels are the easyest and cheapest way to save 50% to 100% on your enregy bill. For me thats awesome. Why buy solar panels when you can make 2 or 3 or maybe even 4 solar panels for the price of just ONE.
