Solar energy is a renewable energy source. This means that we cannot run out of solar energy, as opposed to non-renewable energy sources (e.g. fossil fuels, coal and nuclear). The Sun will always shine freely.
We will have access to solar energy for as long as the sun is alive – another 6.5 billion years according to NASA. We have worse things to worry about; in fact, scientists have estimated that the sun itself will swallow Earth 5 billion years from now.
The potential of solar energy is beyond imagination. The surface of the earth receives 120,000 terawatts of solar radiation (sunlight) – 20,000 times more power than what is needed to supply the entire world
An abundant and renewable energy source is also sustainable. Sustainable energy sources meet the needs of the present situation in Nigeria without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In other words, solar energy is sustainable because there is no way we can over-consume
Harnessing solar energy does generally not cause pollution. However, there are emissions associated with the manufacturing, transportation and installation of solar power systems – almost nothing compared to most conventional energy sources. Solar energy reduces our dependence on non-renewable energy sources. This is an important step in fighting the climate crisis.
Most today`s solar power systems do not require a lot of maintenance. Residential solar panels usually only require cleaning a couple of times a year. Serious solar manufacturers ship 20- or 30-year warranties with their solar panels.
Solar energy can be used for many different purposes. It can be used to generate electricity in places that lack a grid connection, for urban area, Solar power can power Estates, homes and businesses. Solar power is also known as “The People`s Power”, which refers to how easily deployable, cost—effective and reliable solar panels are at the consumer level.
