what makes solar photovoltaics so unique?

What does coal and nuclear have in common? These types of electrical generation plants boil water to create steam, which turns a turbine and generates electricity. Hydroelectric and Wind Power is similar to coal and nuclear because it generates energy by turning a turbine to generate electricity. Although since hydroelectric and wind power are renewable and clean, they are a better source of electricity for the future to reduce carbon footprints and to generate electricity safely via domestic resources.

What makes solar photovoltaic so different is there are no moving parts, with photovoltaics you don’t have to turn a turbine to generate electricity. The special materials that solar panels are composed of causes the “photovoltaic reaction” when light hits a solar cell, electronics are excited and the byproduct is electric voltage and current that is transported through wire to an electrical circuit. get it?

No moving parts means, highly reliable equipment that will last for a very long time. Most solar panels come with warranties that covered for at least 25 to 30 years. There are solar photovoltaic panels still in operation since the 1970s. So why do you think so many people think solar power is unreliable?
