• Solar energy is becoming more and more popular as a source of household energy in many countries around the world. • Why is this? • What are the advantages and disadvantages of solar energy?

These days,
energy
requirements are growing at an increasing rate. Due to the side effects of nuclear
power
, many countries are looking at different options like
energy
from sun and plastic.
However
, there are both pros and cons regarding the use of solar
energy
for households. In
this
essay, I will discuss some of the reasons why solar
energy
is efficient and some challenges to be overcome. Let's begin by looking at the advantages of using solar
energy
.
Firstly
, one of the main positives of solar
energy
is that it keeps planet Earth safe. What I mean by
this
is that there are no harmful resources in solar
energy
production.
For example
, In generating the nuclear
power
, radioactive material's are used, due to which there can be a high risk of nuclear meltdown like Chernobyl.
Moreover
, there is no wastage produced from solar panels, unlike nuclear waste from reactors.
Secondly
, Once the panels are installed there is no
power
bill till their life tenure. They produce
energy
from sun rays, which means that there is no end for
energy
source
.
For Instance
, using 20 solar panels, it is true that one can run all the electronics in a medium sized house for free round the year.
Additionally
, there won't be any
power
loss like normal
power
sources.
Finally
, houses can be fitted with both solar and normal
power
as the
energy
source
. Turning on to the other side of the argument, The installation charges for solar panels are very high compared to that of any other
power
source
which makes people choose other options.
In addition
, solar
energy
is very much useful for heavy industries than normal housing as the amount of electricity bill generated by the normal
energy
source
for many years equates the installation charges of solar panels.
Furthermore
, it is very difficult to maintain them as very less personal are trained to work in the field.
Also
, many people have no knowledge to use them making the way for traditional
energy
sources. In conclusion,
Although
it is difficult to maintain solar panels, it is worth using them as it is non dangerous. You need to weigh up positives in the form of saving the society, lower
power
bills, and soon, and the negatives of high installation charges before using them. Personally, I believe the benefits in the form of the lower electricity bill with constant
energy
source
eventually outweigh any negatives.

Support ideas with relevant, specific examples

Examples make your writing easier to understand by illustrating points more effectively.

Examples, if used properly, not only help you get higher marks for ‘Task Response’ but also for ‘Coherence’.

When giving examples it is best to put them after your main idea or topic sentence. They can be used in the middle of supporting sentences or they can be used to start a new sentence. There is no rule for where exactly to give examples in essays, logically they would come after your main idea/topic sentence or just after a supporting sentence.

Linking words for giving examples:

  • for example
  • for instance
  • to illustrate this
  • to give a clear example
  • such as
  • namely
  • to illustrate
  • take, for example
