What are some of the sustainable energy myths that need debunking?21 September 2023
Sustainable energy solutions are sometimes criticized for being too expensive or ineffective, but in many cases, advances in technology have made them more viable than ever before. We asked renewable energy enthusiasts to counter some of the more common reasons people doubt the feasibility of renewable energy, and here’s what they had to say:
Solar panels arent effective in rainy climates
One common sustainable energy myth I’ve encountered is that solar panels are generally not worth it, especially in areas with lots of rain, and will never be able to cover household energy needs.
While you might get less output from solar panels in rainy areas, they do still gather energy from low light—and since so much effort is being directed toward developing sustainable energy tech, I would expect more and more efficient panels to become available. And the fact is that even if solar panels aren’t covering your entire energy bill (as I’ve seen them do in plenty of cases), they will still help offset your energy costs to a pretty significant degree.
