Possibilities of Solar Power
Day time in Cambodia is longer than night time.

- 1876, William Grulls Adams
- 1950s, Calvin Fuller, Gerald Pearson & Daryl Chapin.
- 1960s, Standard for powering space bound satellites.
- 1970s-1990s, Exxon found the way to reduce cost of solar cells, began to use on railroad crossing, remote places to power homes, microwaves towers.
- Nowadays, it’s widely used.
Cambodia is a perfect place for Solar Power for 3 reasons
Cambodia has two regular seasons which are dry seasons and rain season. During the dry season, the sun shine is really perfect for the process of generating solar energy. However, during the rainy season the condition of generating solar energy is still excellent.
Cambodia has a lot of places which are available for all kinds of solar power investment projects. : Cambodia has a lot of places which are available for all kinds of solar power investment projects.
Q & A
The cost of purchasing and installing of solar panels is high. However, the prices are falling rapidly.
The location and placement of solar panels is also major importance.
The process of generating solar energy does not pollute the environment, but the process of producing photovoltaic does.
The photovoltaic panels cannot generate the solar energy during night. In some countries the weather is not reliable such as UK, some part of USA which make solar power inefficiency.

All in all, we can see that using solar panels have many benefits to the environment. However, it is still a hard choice for some countries because of the high price, placement and location, pollution and unreliable. Nevertheless, solar energy is very suitable for Cambodia.
Free & cost effective
Sunlight is free. There is only cost of equipment.
Solar energy is an excellent alternative for fossil fuels like coal and petroleum.
Accessibility in remote location
Solar power can generate electricity no matter how remote the area as long as the sun shines there.
Once a photovoltaic array is setup it can last for decades.
Photovoltaic technology is still expensive but the technology is improving and production is increasing.
The danger of further damage to the environment is minimized.
It can be added with ease and almost with no major revamp.
Clean, reliable and renewable source of electricity.
