First thing that you should know about Solar energy is that solar energy is the least efficient but easily accessible of all the renewable energies. Here are some challenges faced by solar energy:-

  1. No generation when the sun sets down.
  2. Cleaning the panels regularly. Cleaning panels of large solar farms is wastage of lots of water.
  3. Small shadow on the panel can disrupt the generation of whole string.
  4. Costly replacement of batteries in off-grid plants.
  5. In On-grid systems, when there is a power cut from the grid then you cannot use your own power generation. Your power will also go out.
  6. Finding faults and maintenance of big solar farms is hard because of large size.
