There are advantages and disadvantages for SOLAR energy . Some advantages for SOLAR energy is there is a unlimited supply , doesn't pollute , its renewable , and its silent . Some disadvantages are , if the weather patterns are bad, it can also be VERY expensive . Solar energy is a renewable resource. the reason its renewable is because it doesn't take a long time to be replenished .

As you can see in this video solar energy can power a whole town maybe even a city. Same with wind or hydro-power .

  • This is a SOLAR field . This solar field can probably power a city . The reason we say that is because two solar panels can power a house , and as you can see this SOLAR FIELD has way more solar panels .

In this photo the red stands for most use of Solar energy and green stands for less used . So around the area of Los Angeles or San diego is the most used Solar energy , and Seattle is less used SOLAR energy .
