The Great Solar Debate - Introduction


The Great Solar Debate is going to delve deeply into the issues surrounding the feasibility of solar power. It is important to have this conversation, considering the present state of our energy infrastructure. Unfortunately, fossil fuels, our current major energy source, are not going to last forever. Alternative energy sources will need to reach their potential soon to ensure that a sustainable global energy system is in place for future generations.

The Great Solar Debate is going to delve deeply into the issues surrounding the feasibility of solar power. It is important to have this conversation, considering the present state of our energy infrastructure. Unfortunately, fossil fuels, our current major energy source, are not going to last forever. Alternative energy sources will need to reach their potential soon to ensure that a sustainable global energy system is in place for future generations.
 
Solar power, one of the top prospects in the world of alternative energy, is thought by experts to be the renewable energy source with the most potential. Nevertheless, people have many questions about solar power, ranging from its cost to its effectiveness. We will respond to these concerns in order to show why solar energy truly is the energy of the future.
 
In our first debate, we will address solar energy’s plausibility in a variety of climates. We hope you find it educational and enjoyable.
