Solar panels use now-a-days is increasing day by day because it is a key element to produce eco-friendly and alternative source of energy. due to the energy crises the energy need will increase in future so far that a huge number of solar panels will be used all over the world. For this purpose the researchers take it as an eco-conservative concern.
Peril to biodiversity:
Mr. Bruce Robertson, Research Associate, from Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University says that it is a possible and clear threat to biodiversity. He told that shining dark surface of the solar cells, which reflect the sunlight is the same as water surfaces that result aquatic insects like mayflies depositing their eggs on the solar panels. The solar panels will be posing a false habitat hazard, risky to more than 300 species of insect. It will lead to a reproductive failure that may have far-reaching cascading contrary effects to the food chain. These insects fall prey to predators. This sort of data was provided and given in the research, the research was held in Hungary.
False or incorrect Surface:
Mr. Robertson and his research colleagues after the research in Hungary had clearly indicated and mentioned in their article that reflected sunlight from expanses or enlargement of the dark surfaces which are shiny like glass-clad buildings, vehicles, solar panels of all sizes leads to badly for polarized light pollution. Because such dark shiny surfaces cause the caddis flies and other aquatic insects to mistake and incorrect shining surface to water surface to lay their eggs.
How to bring lower, reduce that threat?
According to Mr. Robertson white marking of solar cells may reduce this threat to a large extent. The calculations made by researchers shows that white marking the solar panels will not affect the efficiency and working performance of the solar panels. The researchers had discovered in the research that the aquatic insects is no more threat, by fixing white-color grids and other methods to break up the polarized reflection.
