Solar Panels
Full Moon


  • Only works when the sun is shining and requires a backup

  • Expensive to start-up

  • Elements sourced to make panels are not abundant

  • Recycling toxic materials in panels is expensive, and therefore not done adequately

  • Panel end up in landfills, leaching toxic metals into soil

  • Solar farms are placed in deserts for the best yields. Deserts are dusty environments and cleaning panels consumes water. This practice has increased water scarcity in already vulnerable areas.

  • Harm to wildlife

  • Power plants require a lot of space

  • China controls the rare earth minerals needed to make solar panels
