after the energy is produced it is confined to a small area in ratio to the size of the system. Personal solar photovoltaic systems can be dangerous to the power grid because overproduction of energy can fry the grid. When a personal system produces more energy then used the power is diverted backward into the power grid and if the backflow becomes too great the grid can get overloaded and shut down. There are ways to regulate this backflow though. On the positive side of overproduction, the power distributors are required to pay anyone who generates more electricity than they use at a rate of how much they use. All things considered, the battle on solar energy has many perspectives. Solar is so versatile and could be set up anywhere. It is extraordinarly efficent by means of cost and energy yields. Solar energy is extremely abundant and easy to harness. There are zero byproducts nor is there any form of pollution. We should consider utilizing solar energy instead of traditional environmentally harmful means of energy production because it's the most logical, cost efficient, and environmentally friendly choice we have been offered. The transition to a solar powered world will be hard but to insure we keep our planet safe for for the future generations we borrow it from we will make the correct choice.
