Solar Cel Manufacture is an Environmental nightmare
Solar cel manufacture requires production of polysilicon. Each ton made forms FOUR TONS of highly toxic silicon tetrachloride waste. Hillsides and fresh water streams in China are already polluted with this horrible substance. The process also requires arsenic, cadmium, tin, lead, and acid washes. The east central Chinease province of Henan already has a super fund type site on their hands.
Would you want a solar cel plant in your backyard. I wouldn't!!!!!!!
Nature already gave us a perfect and environmentally clean solar cell, it's called green plantation and coal is the end product of it for hundreds of millions of years. Use coal, it's the most abundant fossil fuel and its energy originally came from the sun!
