THE SOLAR PARC
The biggest advantage of solar energy is that it is available in huge quantities, it is inexhaustible (at least for a few billion years) and is organic. Solar power is not polluting and does not adversely affect the atmosphere. Considerring that the degradation of our planet is reaching ever higher levels, this issue is beginning to be taken into account more seriously than ever.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that by 2050, solar power could become the main energy source in the world. Agency experts estimated that in the next ten years, solar energy will become commercially viable, and then overcome the economic parameters of traditional sources.
