  • Its, more or less, clean in that no fossil fuels are used in the production of the electricity.
    However, like nearly everything else its a fallacy, due to the resources, i.e. fossil fuels, used in the construction of those solar panels.
    The whole green argument is a strawman for those who simply want to control others. 0% 0 Votes
  • U are just absorbing power from the sun that might be reflected back to space. That is what the plants do. 0% 0 Votes
  • From the point of producing electricity from the sun%26#039;s heat or light, then yes it is environmentally friendly. However, take into account the chemical process of making the photovoltaic cells or energy used in the production of solar collectors.

    Oil is still used in solar trough power plants such as SEGS by Barstow. Solutia (formerly Monsanto) Therminol is used as the heat transfer media and risks contaminating large areas of desert.

    And the future hazards the storage batteries pose have yet to rear its ugly head.

    So if you%26#039;re considering only air quality then Yes solar is more environmentally friendly. 13% 1 Vote

  • Solar power is environmentally friendly because it doesn%26#039;t produce emmisions. Solar power is not environmentally friendly because it take a lot of toxic chemicals to make and requires huge amounts of space to be viable on more than a limited basis. Solar cells are prone to damage and inefficient but they%26#039;re making advancements on both counts. So the answer is, using solar power is environmentally friendly provided you have plenty of wide open spaces, making them isn%26#039;t. 13% 1 Vote
  • Solar power is pollution free.This power is generated only by the sun and transformed by panels which absorb the energy.Heat generated 13% 1 Vote
  • Solar Power is self explanatory; people generate electricity for their homes using energy gained from the sun. Metal borders and mirrors are placed ontop the roof at an approximately 45 degree angle, so as to absorb the sunlight and store it for future use. The only problem with this, is that if there is no sun for a certain period of time, there is no energy unless the individuals living in the home have an alternative source of energy on which they rely on.

    It is environmentaly friendly because it does not burn fuel for energy or requires batteries filled with acid for energy. Since no batteries are needed, there is no risk of damaging the environment while disposing them, because they contain acid and sometimes lead. 13% 1 Vote
  • In my opinion it is friendly because it is reuseable energy not like ethonal. Correct if I am wrong its just an opinion. 0% 0 Votes
