    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article Most Important Renewable Energy Source. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      There are several problems with your article. I'll just list them as I see them.

      You are writing in a very saturated topic. That means your article will always be competing with more authoritative sites. You have to make your article stand out from the crowd by making it different. At the moment you aren't telling us anything new.

      You haven't included any of the downsides of solar power. For instance, there's no power when the sun doesn't shine. And how about the difficulty of storing solar generated energy?

      What about domestic solar systems? How do they work? What happens to excess power?

      Your images must be legal-to-use, you can't republish any that are from a copyrighted source.

      The intro should be at the top. The pie chart is poor quality and looks to be copyright to EIA.

      Your sub-headings should be consistently in Title Case. The first one doesn't work with the content of the introduction. You don't need to use the word 'Introduction' for the first paragraph. All first paragraphs are fundamentally introductions.

      I don't understand this point: "The business for photovoltaic cells will fall only when the easily affordable sources like fossil fuels are available largely in the market."

      The article ends very abruptly, it almost seems unfinished.

      Proofread for grammatical errors; there are quite a lot.

      Hope that helps.

        Thanks for your suggestion.

        When the scope of the article is only to discuss solar energy as renewable energy, there is nothing wrong in not discussing the aspects that you have mentioned in your suggestions. Every article has its own scope.

        Regarding the image, I apologize for my mistake that I have not mentioned the source. I did not know that the column source is meant for that. I will take care of it hereafter.

        Coming to a statement in my article that you have mentioned above, I was trying to emphasize that the utilization of photovoltaic cells can only go down if there is a large demand for other fossil fuels or other non-renewable energy sources. Though the demand for fossil fuel is high, the supplies are found very limited in many of the developing countries. The supplies of fossil fuels are very less in many countries especially in India where the rate of petrol and diesel is almost always going higher every day. The reasons might be due to other factors also.  Hence, it is an indirect indication that the sales for photovoltaic cells will fall only if the fossil fuels are largely available. People in developed countries will not be able to understand this because they probably have not seen the scarcity of fossil fuels.

    You have to remember that HubPages is not an Indian site. It attracts readers from all over the world. If you want to earn from your article, you need  to attract traffic. There's no point in just repeating material that is readily available elsewhere on the web. No-one will find your article because they will be going directly to sites like Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_energy That's what you are competing with.

    There is nothing 'wrong' in not discussing the negatives, but if you did, your article would be more balanced.

    The sentence I picked out doesn't make sense when read in a global context. The use of fossil fuels is constantly being discouraged. Advancing technology will gradually mean that reliance on fossil fuels will lessen.

    If you address the points I made, your hub stands a chance of being approved and featured. If you make an effort to improve your article to the best of your ability, it might even get moved to a niche site, which will gain you more traffic and thus higher earnings. You don't have to take any of my advice, of course big_smile

    Yeah, I know that the hub pages readers are from all over the world and Hub pages is not an Indian site. I think this is going more towards an argument than a suggestion thread. I don't have any problem in taking advice if it convinces me totally. Thank you so much for your valuable advice. I will look into making some changes in my article. Thank you once again.
