There are many renewable energy resources other than solar power (wind, hydropower, biofuel, natural gas, etc.). There are no energy resources, though, that match the combination of wealth, cleanliness and raw power of solar energy. Since the sun is all over the place and absorbing its energy has totally no impact on the environment, there can be no argument against efficient solar technology by any group, including the electric companies in PA where 68 million tons of coal-by far our dirtiest source of energy and 56 percent of the state’s energy production-are produced each year.
Solar technology is developing beyond basic panels as well: cells are becoming so advanced that solar power technology is rapidly drifting into the realm of science fiction. Perhaps, spray-on solar cells now exist and scientists are developing them for commercial use.
Your energy production rates rely on how many panels are used in your solar panel system. The more panels that you use, the more energy production you will have. When selecting your solar panel system, you need to base your choice on what your needs are for your location and your household demand. Warmer climates will require less solar panel than colder climates.
