isn't taking the suns energy a type of pollution? you are taking all the energy the sun can give, especially when MILLIONS of people choose and are switching to it? it does save us money in the long run ( a plate is worth $2000 minimum, that is not cheap and you need at least four or five plates each house that is at least $50,000 for 10 homes 20 homes it would cost $1000,000.00) it cost more to buy a solar panel than it does paying for your electric bill, in a shorter time. so even though it may seem we are paying nothing towards our natural energy bills but paying for the panels is pricier. and at the end we destroy the earth by using the suns energy, and that mean less photosynthesis for the flora's and that mean no food for faunas and that means we run out of food and water.
