Pros and Cons of Solar Energy

There are, naturally, pros and cons to using solar panels. Some of the advantages include zero carbon emissions, no pollution, no waste. It’s some of the cleanest energy you’re bound to find in this or any other galaxy. Advantage number two is freeing yourself (at least partially) from power companies. No more dependence on the power grid system.

The main disadvantage of solar panels is price. The average cost for a home installation of the typical solar panel system is $35,000. A second disadvantage of solar electric systems is that they must be protected from mechanical damage (in particular against hail impact, wind and snow loads, ice). A third disadvantage is that some people think they look bad up there on the roof.
