In simple terms, the conversion of sunlight or sun rays into electricity by photovoltaic or mirrors is known as solar power. Also, it can convert into both thermal and electrical energy. It is a renewable and cleanest energy that causes no harm to the environment.
We all know that some resources are limited and will run out one day, but the sun will always remain there. Are you aware that the amount of energy the sun produces for an hour can meet the global energy need for a year? So we all need to understand what solar energy is, and its uses/advantages.
1. Environment friendly
The most significant advantage of having solar energy is that it’s environment friendly and causes no harm to the environment in any regard. Other forms of energy, such as Fossil fuels, harm the environment because they produce greenhouse gases that pollute the environment, but Solar power has no such effects. Another advantage is that Solar energy requires very little water while other electric technologies require a good amount of water.
