Fossil fuels cause climate changes, Solar energy is an potential solution to these problems. When fossil fuels are burned to create electricity , dangerous greenhouse gases start to invade into our atmosphere. Scientists believe that if we keep relying on fossil fuels , they will cause serious environmental problems in the future. Another important use for solar panels is in satellites. Many satellites is made with solar cells which catch the rays of sunlight so it can be used to power itself. Solar panels are also useful in places that don’t have standard electricity like we do. For example, research facilities in Antarctica are powered by solar panels. Without Solar Panels our world would be in
