In the world for any type of work to be done, energy must be needed. For instance, for a vehicle to move from one point to another source of energy is needed. There are many types of source of energy and one of them discussed in this article is solar energy. Using solar energy have a lot of advantages when compared to other types of source of energy. The advantages are as discussed below.
The first benefit of solar energy is that it is cheaper than any other source of energy. Harvesting and installation solar energy is cheaper than harvesting and installation of other types of source of energy in the environment. Solar energy does not need a large plant to be set up for harvesting. Building an harvesting and installation plant for any type of source of energy is expensive, it will even become more expensive if the plant has to be large. So being that in the harvesting and installation of solar energy, a large plant is not needed make it cheap. Harvesting of solar energy has been found to be cheaper than installing wind technologies. So the cheapest type of source of energy that is solar energy.
The second merit of solar energy is that it is safe and easy to transport. Transporting solar energy is much easier and safer in the environment than any other type of source of energy. Because some other source of energy are hazardous, they cannot be transported from one point to another due to the high possibility of risk. But with solar energy they can be transported form one point to another over long distances because they are safe and stable. Because solar energy are stable and safe, they can even be pumped through pipes installed above or below the ground. All the transportation method for solar energy are cheap.
The other merit of solar energy is that they are reliable. Unlike, other types of source of energy, solar energy are more reliable. Some other types of source of energy which are used to produce energy like the windmills, geothermal power are affected by climatic conditions. For instance, the wind mills which produce wind energy will only function if wind is blowing, the electricity which produce energy to other types of energies will only function if the waters are turning the turbines . However, the solar energy is not affected by weather conditions, it will produce energy throughout the seasons. So the most types of reliable source of energy is solar energy.
