Advantages of Solar Power

No moving parts, non-polluting, renewable, little maintenance: is there a downside?


Photovoltaic power is one of the most promising sources of power today. It is renewable, non-polluting, has no moving parts to break, and doesn’t require much maintenance.

Compared to other renewable power sources, such as wind or water, or even thermal power, there are some obvious advantages. Wind and water power is produced using large, noisy turbines that can break down. Thermal solar power even requires some type of turbine to produce the power.

Photovoltaic energy , on the other hand, has no moving parts, requires little to no maintenance and the cells last for decades.
