As a major renewable energy source, solar energy has many advantages over fossil fuel sources – but it also stands out among other renewable sources of producing energy like wind.

A solar energy system has no moving parts, which means less risk to damage, no maintenance requirement, better reliability and a 25 year warranty.

Unlike wind turbines that basically move to produce energy, requires specialized monitoring and have very high maintenance costs.

Solar energy systems provide more predictable energy outputs, is relatively silent in operation, fast installation with less cable required, and less susceptible to lightning and high wind damage.

Wind on the other hand; has a wide production range due to wind speed, is very noisy, bulky with a very lengthy installation process, very susceptible to lightening and very high winds.
