What are the environmental benefits of using solar energy?

Capturing the power of the sun using solar technology helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions (https://nature.berkeley.edu/classes/es196/projects/2013final/ArifM_2013.pdf), which contributes to climate change, and also results in fewer air pollutants like sulfur dioxide and particulate matter, which can cause health problems.

By design, there is an electronic imbalance between the two layers and when the sun’s photons bombard the cell it knocks the electrons loose. The electrons then “bounce” from the top layer to the bottom layer creating energy. These […]
