Solar: Benefit vs Risks
Among all the benefits of solar panels, the most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. We cannot run out of solar energy, unlike some other sources of energy. They’re also low maintenance – you only need to keep them relatively clean, so cleaning them a couple of times per year will do the job. You need to take into consideration though that solar panels are dependent on sunlight, therefore, a few cloudy, rainy days can have a noticeable effect on the energy system. Plus solar panels require a lot of space and some roofs are not big enough to fit the number of solar panels that you would like to have.
