Well, solar energy can't really effect the earth but there are some impacts: it is very weather dependable, the actual manufactured of solar cells uses a lot of energy and releases toxic pollutants and some countries cannot rely on solar power because of their location on the globe.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I found the info in a book at school. :)
