IMPACT ON ENVIRONMENT
Adoption of Solar energy solutions in your households could be one of the measures to stop the degrading of the environment. Solar energy is a CLEAN form of energy. It means that there is absolutely no pollution caused in the production or transmission of solar energy. Therefore, electricity generated through solar systems have no negative impact on the environment and we can continue meeting our power needs at the same time. Solar energy is far less damaging than other traditional forms of electricity production, such as thermal energy plants. There is no danger is associated with its production as it is with nuclear power plants. By adopting solar energy, you are making a huge contribution in the fight against environmental degradation.
RENEWABLE SOURCE OF ENERGY
Solar energy is may be the best form of the renewable source of energy. This is because the raw material required to produce solar energy is the sun’s rays. Sun rays are received by us in abundance over extended periods of time, all over the year and even across all seasons. Every place on earth is blessed to This source of energy is non-perishable and easily available and also free of cost. It Nis one of the most sustainable forms of energy that has been developed. In production, transmission or consumption there is n’t any damage being inflicted on the environment.
LOW MAINTENANCE COST
Every component of the solar energy solutions is extremely low maintenance. Solar panels are made of excellent quality tempered glass. If cleaned regularly, they can easily last a lifetime. Also, to meet your increased energy demands, you can install additional panels and continue saving dollars on your electricity bills. Solar inverters need regular servicing as they are continuously working around the clock. If taken care of, inverters easily last about a decade. Certain manufacturers have also started manufacturing inverters that come with a twenty-five-year warranty. The cables and transmission wires are also extremely durable. You may need to replace them as and when the need arises to maintain the efficiency of the solar system, but that may occur once in five to six years. Hence, after the initial investment, the upkeep and maintenance cost incurred on your solar system is very low.
SOLAR ENERGY IS SCALABLE
The setup for solar energy could easily be scaled up or down depending on your usage. It is an investment for a lifetime. Hence, when your consumption increases, you can easily install additional solar panels. These panels can help you generate more solar electricity and you need not consume additional units from the grid. Therefore, the check on your electricity bills can be low, even in the future. Every solar panel has the ability to last over two decades at least if maintained properly. Also, the raw material required for the generation of solar energy, ie the sun’s rays, will continue to remain free and easily available. Thus, investing in and switching to solar energy solutions is a wise decision monetarily.
HUGE SAVINGS IN ELECTRICITY BILLS
As soon as you install solar energy solutions and reduce your dependence on electricity received from the grid, you will notice a huge reduction in your electricity bills. The maximum electricity consumption is between 11 AM to 5 PM. It is also during these hours that the solar system’s performance is at its peak. Hence, depending on the scale of your solar system’s setup, you could meet all your power needs and yet not consume even a single unit from the grid. This would result in you saving thousands of dollars each year. In the coming years, as demand for power increases, the cost per unit of electricity received from the grid is bound to increase. Some countries also charge a higher cost per unit during peak hours of consumption. You can negate all these costs and save a lot of money but making the switch to solar energy solutions.
Solar energy solutions for domestic use were introduced about a decade ago. Since then, there have been many major breakthroughs and many manufacturers and distributors have entered the market. The result has been that solar panels and inverters have become extremely affordable as large-scale manufacturing has helped bring down their costs. Even at present researches are being carried out to help improve the efficacy of solar panels to twice or thrice than what it is at present. It can easily conclude that in the coming year's solar energy solutions shall become even more affordable. And as to cost per unit of power received from the grid increases, you could reduce and eventually even negate your dependence on the power used from the grid.
HIGHER PROPERTY VALUES
Many environmentally-conscious organizations or individuals are willing to pay more for a property that has solar systems installed on them as a means of power on that property. This is because every buyer or tenant is aware of the savings in their electricity bills when they use solar power and not consumer units from the grid. In addition, properties with solar energy solutions fall under several tax incentives from the government. These factors are enough for the buyers to pay more for the property as they shall eventually be making more savings. Hence, you cannot go wrong if you decide to install a good quality solar system on your property.
