Why are there more coal power plants then solar power plants?

There are more coal plants than solar plants because the cost per Mega-Watt is much less using coal than solar power, and currently coal is more efficient. The problem today is that in a environmentally conscious society coal is a 'dirty' fuel, and solar power is clean. That is why environmentalists are pushing for more Solar (and wind) power generation.

Why are solar power plants better than coal-fired power plants?

Solar gives of no pollution and does not require constant digging up of the earth to fuel them unlike Coal. But Solar only works during the daytime when the clouds are not blocking the sunlight. Solar also only produces a very small amount of power. Most panels provide less energy over their twenty year life, then it takes to create them.
