The intensity of solar energy decreases as latitude increases

Explanation:

Intensity is defined as the energy per unit volume.

The Sun rays fall almost vertically in the equator. The intensity of Sun rays is maximum at the equator. As the latitude increases the angle of the inclination will get change.

The Sun rays will spread over a large area. The intensity will get reduced on the latitude.

Therefore, as the latitude increases the intensity of solar energy decreases.
