Spectacular Science DEBATE POST!!!: Solar Cells vs. Wind Turbines

This blog post is another a debate showdown! We take topics and make them into a debate!! Today’s topic is… Solar Cells vs. Wind Turbines. Remember, please send us what side you agree with going to www.spectacularsci.com/debateform and fill out our form!

Solar Cells

Solar Cells are a sheet filled with hundreds of tiny receptors that are sensitive to the Sun’s energy. The Solar Cells use these receptors (Photovoltaic Receptors) to create electricity with the Sun’s light. The Sunlight is very hot, which means that a the Solar Cells can harness that energy for power! This is why Solar Power is top!

Wind Turbines

Wind Turbines are large structures that have sails on them and catch wind to generate electricity. When wind blows, the sail (Long part sticking out) spins around. This spinning causes a turbine at the back end of the wind turbine to spin and generate electricity. This is done without the use of nasty Fossil Fuels. This is why Wind Turbines are the best!

Results: Both types of power will really make a difference in the world. This will help us with reduce the impact of Climate Change!
