As the advent of time has been witnessing the rising energy demands at a rapid pace, there has been a significant transition from traditional power sources to more efficient and sustainable alternatives. The term “solar power” has become a buzzword in the space. More and more industries have been leveraging this renewable energy to manage their on-going power demands. From energy security to sustainability perspective, solar power technologies deliver numerous benefits.
Multiple technologies and innovative ways are being discovered to create electricity from solar energy. The rise in the installations of photovoltaic panels in residential and commercial sectors to create usable energy has been the biggest example of this development. Also, the deployment of concentrated solar power, by using lenses or mirrors focussed on a small area (where the tremendous heat is turned into electricity).
Solar power not only cuts down on the electricity bills but also ensures a significant reduction in the carbon footprint and improves the health of the people.
Solar power contributes to our environment by reducing greenhouse gases, improving the quality of the air, facilitating water conservation and much more. Let’s do a deeper dive to understand the benefits that come with solar power:
There is no need to stress over the fact that water is the most precious natural resource on the planet and human beings can’t function without it. But considering the ever-increasing humongous demand for water, we will be running out of the freshwater in the future. The conventional way of energy production, right from cooling generators to refining fuel, requires thousands of litres of water every year. On the other hand, power generation via solar panels doesn’t require water. Only rainwater is needed to naturally clean the panels when they get covered with dirt. This eliminates the strain in water consumption and conservation of this precious resource is simply taken care of.
The utilization of fossil fuels such as coal and gas has been a traditional and non-sustainable way to generate energy. Fossil fuels emit harmful gases when burned to produce electricity. These harmful gases are the main reason behind global climatic change and air pollution. Also, fossil fuels are a finite resource and formed from the decomposition of remains of living organisms. This simply means that the formation process is very time-taking. As the resource is limited and demand is high, the price is also constantly fluctuating. Leveraging solar power energy instead of fossil fuel to meet the power needs can not only eliminate the dependence on fossil fuel but also reduce health care costs and premature mortality.
The heavy dependence on fossil fuel i.e. coal, oil, and natural gas to run homes and power stations that supply us with electricity is a key contributor to global warming. Fossil fuel when burned, produce carbon dioxide which gets trapped in our atmosphere and this causes the greenhouse effect. As solar power cuts down the dependency on fossil fuels and coal to meet power demands, there is a substantial reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases.
According to an analysis by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), it has been found that solar adoption would significantly reduce nitrous oxides, sulphur dioxide, and particulate matter emissions that cause health problems. Also, it results in fewer cases of chronic bronchitis, respiratory and cardiovascular problems, and lost workdays related to health issues.
