Solar Panels have, and will continue to make a great difference for our planet. There is so much energy given off by the sun that could replace the majority of the energy we currently get from harmful resources and processes. Placing panels on roofs is the simplest way to harness this energy, and uses a space that otherwise goes unused. Elon Musk then took the next step into using this source of energy. Many people don’t like the industrial appearance of the panels, and so he has created solar panels that look like regular shingles of different types to place on roofs and collect the energy use by the house. If everyone were to make use of this great source of energy, our earth and environment would be much better off.
