Solar vs Coal Solar energy has always been criticized by fossil fuel proponents by saying that solar energy is intermittent and unpredictable and cannot ever replace fossil fuel energy sources which act as baseload power sources. Even though the prices of solar energy have come down to levels as low as 4 cents in India […]
