solar carbon

January 5, 2022: There’s no such thing as a free lunch, and solar energy is no exception to that rule. Just because no carbon is emitted during the operation of solar modules does not mean that carbon emission and other forms of pollution and toxic processes are not involved. Creating a solar module does require energy and complex materials, and there have been many life cycle assessments (LCA) of various energy sources to determine “cradle to grave” carbon emissions.
