Solar power does not produce any emissions, is renewable, and is highly suitable for powering portable devices as well as homes. Many new homes take solar energy generation into consideration as a design concept, with solar panels and water-heating systems. While the goal of solar-powered transport has not yet been achieved, the panels can be employed in vehicles as a source of power for air conditioning.
When it comes to large-scale energy production, the main disadvantage of solar technology is that solar panels and energy storage devices use a significant amount of land. This can be defrayed somewhat by building on land that is not suitable for other uses.
