Advantages of Installing Solar Energy
You have probably heard that solar energy reduces the cost of your bills, is ecologically responsible, and is a clean, renewable energy source. But did you know that solar energy can be stored and used for blackouts?
Read about some alternative benefits of installing solar panels in your home here.
1. The price of solar panels has dropped around 70% since 2010Installing solar panels has never been less expensive. With price drops, online purchasing, and attractive financing options, now is the time to go solar.
2. No more power outages
In some places, power outages can last several days. Conserve your solar energy with batteries, and you never have to worry about firing up a generator or lighting candles again!
3. Solar panels provide energy from a variety of locations
It works in cloudy weather, in extreme conditions, and in the middle of nowhere, so if you want to live completely off-the-grid, you can! With solar panels, you can become energy independent.
4. Solar energy is your best investment in the futureIt gives high ROI, high-value homes, and low maintenance. Properties with solar panels increase their value exponentially. With very little maintenance required, solar panels can last 20-30 years, saving you thousands of dollars by offsetting your electricity bill.
5. Get ahead of the trend
Most homes will be solar-powered in 55 years, as non-renewable energy sources such as coal, oil, and gas deplete. Start saving the environment now, and make the transition smoother. Benefit from the knowledge and experience as others join the solar society. Encourage others to go solar and lead by example.
6. Your electric rates will never go upPrepare for the future by offsetting your electricity bill by up to 110%.
7. Save water
To obtain non-renewable energy sources, we use a million gallons of water in the fracking or mining processes. Power Plants use 600-800 gallons of water alone to cool down. On the other hand, solar power does not harm the environment by wasting water.
8. No noise pollution
Solar panels produce electricity without noise pollution, which is important if you live in an urban area. Solar energy does not generate any environmental pollution at all.
