    Solar Energy is one of the best sources of clean and green electricity. I think that we should build more efficient solar thermal power plants and solar cells. frequently. ~

    solar cells are very good but they are not very efficient and they are costly~::

  3. Peyton Rivera Says:

    solar power would be cheaper it we could just cut down the cost of solar cells.-”

  4. Brian Hughes Says:

    solar energy will get cheaper in the future and more efficient too~~”

  5. Wood Shelf  Says:

    solar power is great because it is a reneweable source of energy and non-polluting too,~*

  6. Curtain Lining  Says:

    amorphous type solar cells are the cheapest option that we cant get if we want solar power-,-

  7. Sheer Curtains · Says:

    solar power has lots to offer that is why we should improve our technology in harnessing the energy coming from the sun *

  8. Indoor Grills · Says:

    even with the price drop, solar cells are still quite expensive if you want to get more than 500 Watts ;
