It can operated with little maintenance or intervention after initial setup. The Solar power is becoming more and more economical as costs associated with production decreases, and the technology becomes more effective in energy conversion. The Solar power can be viewed as a local resource because of original climatic variances. Disadvantages: The Solar power is only practical in certain areas with a favorable climate and latitude. That is, areas near the tropics and which are relatively cloud free. The Solar power is not available at night. The Solar power decreases during cloudy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
