What is keeping solar energy from widespread use?

    There are a few reasons for this.
    Solar photovoltaic panels use silicon which is still fairly expensive to produce rapidly creating an inherent expense in solar panel manufacture.

    Additionally Solar Heating plants are finding that water is a limiting resource – these plants reflect solar energy onto water vaporizing it to run turbines, it is most economical to cool this water with a wet cooling system after it has passed through the turbine which is beginning to be realized as a large sink for water.

    Past this, the public still needs to be widely informed of the benefits of Solar, and as demand increases with the realization of these benefits, competition of production will quite possibly eliminate production problems and high initial costs.
