5 Questions:• Who created solar panels?• a french guy named Antoine Cesar Becquerel invented the solar panel.• Where is the best place to put a solar panel on a house?• On the roof facing the sun• Where can you buy a solar panel from?• There is a place in Auckland called Solar power Auckland, they sell solar panels.• What is the name of the boat that is travelling around the world by solar power?• MS Turanor Planet Solar• How does a solar panel make energy?• They have their energy made by the sun then they store the energy which goes towards making electricity.
Benefits:• It is sustainable and renewable, this means that we will never run out of it.• Solar panels are very little work aswell. Once they have installed there is very little that you have to do to keep them working properly.• They are a silent source of energy, as they don’t make any noise while processing.

Pros and Cons: 5 Pros: 5 Cons: -It is an unreliable -Renewable energy source -Sustainable -expensive -quiet -weather can effect -Doesn’t give any efficiency emissions -pollution can effect-gives off no pollution efficiency -manufacturing and transportation of solar panels causes pollution
Negative impacts and cons: -It is non-renewable -it may be cheaper but it cause a lot more pollution -the gases that are put into the air by non-renewable energy sources can effect other people and their health -If you wanted to use coal, then it can be quite dangerous to mine it -it can sometimes be expensive to get it
