More people than ever are aware of the effects that burning fossil fuels is having on the environment. This is causing more and more people to look into renewable and sustainable energy sources such as solar power.
Fossil fuels are not sustainable, which means that they will one day run out, they can’t be reused. Burning fossil fuels releases Carbon Dioxide (Co2) which is the planets biggest contributor to climate change.
The sun, wind and water are perfect energy sources as they don’t pollute the air and they are renewable and efficient. The use of renewable energy sources such as solar power can reduce our dependency on limited reserves of fossil fuels giving more flexibility to the energy resource mix.
Every hour enough sunlight falls on the earth to reach the worlds energy demands for a year using solar power. There is great potential for this method of sustaining energy
