It can require large plants that generate electricity indirectly. Fluid is heated with heat rays collected from the sun, producing steam. This steam powers a generator, which produces electricity. This ongoing process allows for the storage of energy for use at night or on cloudy days. Sunlight is converted directly into electricity. This instant conversion means no energy is stored. No stored energy makes it efficient only during daylight hours. Solar energy is produced by the sun, making it renewable daily. Replenishing comes from the sun, making it more reliable over time. More naturally renewed energy means less imported energy, saving money. Almost no pollutants are produced during energy production. No carbon emissions are produced, whatsoever. Devices does not have to be constantly monitored after being installed. Smaller workforce is needed to maintain these facili...
