    buy a few solar cells and find out.  Research on such politically charged issues such as this are dubious and usually skewed.  You will have to hazard your own investigation in order to solidify your own mind on this point.

    I would say the sun releases harmful particles not pollutants, which cause power failures on earth.

    I don't think the sun emits pollutants so to speak but on occasion massive solar flares can erupt on the sun and reach us all the way here on earth causing cell phone service interruption and related issues.

    Sometimes we get advanced warnings of such events via the news media.

    Well If your talking about solar panels then yea there are some pollutants released....The silicone used in solarpanels leaves quite a few byprodcts taht are harmfull to the environment. but scientists are quickly researching alternatives to the use of silicone in solar cells.

    If your talkign about the sun specifficly then yeah there is radiation but other than  your day to day exposure its not realy dangerious to the environment... Yous skin though thats a different story. WEl all know about sunburn and skin cancer now dont we?

    In terms of energy from the sun, we haven't had a "solar storm" in a while. The last time we had a serious storm was the Solar Max of 1958. It wasn't noticed too much back then.

    However, NASA has just announced that a solar storm is right around the corner and will be noticed much more in the interference of weather balloons, cell phones, GPS, etc.

    I don`t thinks that solar has any pollutants using a solar energy is one of the best idea..
