  1. Solar panels may not produce as much energy as traditional power sources, but you can’t point those other sources at the sun and get free electricity either. Solar panels aren’t dangerous; they can’t explode when you drop them and they can’t set your house on fire.
    Solar panels still cost more than traditional energy. Because it takes many of them to produce a large amount of energy, large solar panel arrays can consume a lot of land area. Don’t expect a single solar panel to power a large device such as your air conditioning unit. When night falls and the sun vanishes, solar panels cannot provide electricity unless you have batteries or other storage devices that store the energy that the solar panels produce when the sun is visible. The solar power storage batteries contain lead and sulfuric acid, which are hazardous materials. Also, lead batteries can explode when they get wet. However, the safety concerns relating to these batteries are relatively minor.
