Some of the challenges of using solar energy are discussed below. So let us check it out its challenges while using solar energy. Also check out its advantages and disadvantages to learn more about solar energy. 

Points of challenges of using solar energy are :

  • Technological Challenges
  • Financing
  • Transmission and distribution losses
  • Land Acquisition
  • Subsidies
  • The cost of solar panel system : marketing and sales, hardware, labor, permits, other costs and margins and overhead cost
  • Output of the plant is variable
  • Fluctuation in frequency and voltage form seconds to minutes
  • Increases penetration which means large variations
  • Integration over large area reduces variability
  • Inability of predict the exactness whether or not the sun will be available for energy production
  • Calculations of reserves and process of unit commitment becomes more complex
  • Non controllable variability 
  • Partial unpredictability
  • Location dependency
