  9. Reduces the need to rely on the electricity grid or natural gas

Disadvantages of Solar energy

  1. High initial investment for Solar installations, Major costing is solar PV panels
  2. Bad weather impacts the solar energy production
  3. Location of the home
  4. Intermittent energy

Thanks for reading till the end! Hope it helps…

Happy Leaning!
