Sustainable PV

Photovoltaics (PV), which is the production of electricity from light, is one of the most environmentally friendly methods of electricity generation.
It is clean, abundant, silent, cheap, scaleable from small local rooftop systems to large utility-scale power plants, and one of the most efficient methods in terms of generated power per unit area used.

Nevertheless, for photovoltaics to be truly sustainable, especially on large scale, attention needs to be paid also to minimizing the environmental burden during the production and operation of PV systems.
