Solar panels are environmentally friendly? (1)

Why solar panels are environmentally friendly and energy efficient:

The working principle of solar panels is to directly or indirectly convert solar radiation into electric energy through photoelectric effect or photochemical effect by absorbing sunlight. The main material of most solar panels on the market is “silicon”. The use of sunlight has been around for a long time, and the sun is inexhaustible.


Solar panels are made from the most common crystalline silicon in silica sand. Although some chemicals are used during manufacturing to clean the semiconductor surface of the system, leading PV industry manufacturers are strictly following environmental regulations and comply with industry waste disposal regulations to ensure that they do not cause continuous damage to workers' health and the environment. Fossil fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas are highly polluted because they release chemicals and harmful elements into the atmosphere during mining, drilling, or transportation. Using solar panels to generate electricity is very beneficial to coral reefs.
