Solar cells, found on solar panels, consist of semiconductor material that causes electrons to break from their atoms and flow as electricity when sunlight hits the material. You'll find solar panels on calculators, rooftops and even on the International Space Station. Home owners and businesses who wish to use solar energy can install solar panels on their roofs. Some utility companies offer business customers the option to add solar panels to their roofs.
Understand the Safety Issues
As the State of Oregon reports, solar panels are safe and beneficial because they don't produce harmful greenhouse gases or toxic air that some other energy sources emit. The state goes on to add that the potentially hazardous components used to make solar panels don't pose a risk that's "different or greater than the risks found routinely in modern society." The most important health and safety hazards come from the use of dangerous materials during the making of solar cells. However, these concerns are trivial when compared with the dangers associated with traditional fossil fuel sources. As safe as solar panels may seem, consumers should remember that like with batteries, fluorescent lights and some other consumer products, improper handling and disposal of solar panels can create health and environmental risks.

Well spotted, thanks.
Shall I delete now or wait for the adverts ?

Most, perhaps all of the other posts by the same member have that "copied look" they rather resemble some of the sports shoe adverts.

Waiting for
"supplement reviews"
"best band saw reviews"
"urgent investment advice buy this right now"
"new free energy device, buy now before they ban this"

Kukunir, your posts seem to consist of quotes from elsewhere with little or no original contributions.

I have already deleted over half of your posts for being irrelevant or being copies.

Can you give a good reason why I should not delete your account ?
