Solar energy leads to least environmental pollution in the process of its harnessing and utilisation. In nuclear energy, emission of radiation is a high risk for environmental contamination.
In thermal energy, heat produced by burning fossil fuels causes huge environmental pollution. In geothermal energy, noise pollution is created by drilling operations at geothermal sites.
