What are the Advantages of Solar Power

Scientists have estimated that the earth gets enough solar energy from the sun each hour of each day to provide our electrical needs for an entire year . That’s a lot of free energy constantly hitting our planet each and every minute of the day! While we humans have used solar power for centuries, we have only recently started figuring out how to harness, store, and distribute energy derived from solar power, the green technology for doing so efficiently increases exponentially with each new discovery. From better solar panels to stronger batteries to more efficient inverters, rapid development of solar technology means that the advantages of solar power far outweigh any disadvantages.
