Fossil fuels must be located, excavated and transported before they can be used. These processes are invasive and detrimental to the land through side effects such as erosion and ecological and geologic instability. Then the deposit or well is depleted.
Fossil fuels must be burned to produce electricity. Burning them creates unwanted by-products that can create air and water pollution and release huge amounts of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

Energy from the sun is infinite and free. It can be harnessed and turned into power anywhere a solar panel is mounted. When in use, solar panels produce power without waste or emissions, and do so through a process called photovoltaics.
