Explanation:

Primary “pro”: No pollution (except for equipment manufacturing & installation).

Primary “con”: Non-continuous and subject to local weather and sun intensity. This requires large amounts of storage capacity (not eco-friendly) or power interruptions.

There are many “pros” and “cons” to every power source and utilization mechanism. The Total Lifecycle costs and environmental impacts must be considered for comparisons, not just localized parts of the entire process.
