For work to be done in the field today, energy must be provided. For example, vehicles move from one place to another with the use of source of energy like gasoline. Many types of source of energy exist in the environment and one of them that is discussed in this article is the solar energy. There are a lot of benefits of solar energy than other types of source of energy. The benefits are as shown.
The main pro of solar energy is that it is cheaper than any other sources of energy. Harvesting and installation solar energy is cheaper than harvesting and installation of other types of source of energy in the environment. The plant where solar energy harvesting and installation is taking place does not have to be large as for other types of source of energy. Setting up a plant for source of energy harvesting is usually expensive, so if a large harvesting plant is needed than it will be more expensive. So being that in the harvesting and installation of solar energy, a large plant is not needed make it cheap. Harvesting of solar energy is cheaper than putting up wind mills technologies. Solar energy is therefore, the cheapest type of source of energy in the environment.
The second merit of solar energy is that it is safe and easy to transport. When compared to other types of source of energy, transporting solar panels is much easier and safer. Some other types of source of energy are hard to transport because they are dangerous, but solar energy are not. Solar energy can be transported easily and efficiently over long distances because they are safe and stable. Solar energy can even be pumped through pipes installed above or below the ground. All the transportation method for solar energy are cheap.
The third benefit of solar energy is that they are reliable. The solar energy are more reliable than other types of source of energy. Some other types of source of energy available in the environment are affected by climatic conditions, like electricity technologies rely on water turning the turbines, and wind technology relies on the wind. For instance, the wind mills which produce wind energy will only function if wind is blowing, the electricity which produce energy to other types of energies will only function if the waters are turning the turbines . However, the solar energy is not affected by weather conditions, it will produce energy throughout the seasons. Therefore, solar energy are the most reliable type of source of energy.
