Solar panels are devices used to produce electricity for a wide variety of applications. Solar panels work by collecting clean renewable energy from sunlight and converting that light into electricity, which is then used to provide power to electrical loads.
Advantages Of Solar Panels
There are numerous advantages of solar panels. Below we have listed our favourite benefits of this sophisticated energy source:
Renewable Energy Source
Solar energy is a renewable energy source and has the least negative impact on the environment compared to any other source of energy. Sunlight is available all over the world every day, as long as the sun is there – we can generate solar energy.
Save Money On Your Electricity Bills
By generating your own electricity, you will be less reliant on corporate energy companies and therefore won’t be hit as hard in the pocket when electricity prices peak. Many homeowners manage to reduce their electricity spend by as much as 40-50%. Solar panels will still generate energy during the winter months and on cloudy days, although they are much more effective during the summer months.
Energy Production during Peak Hours
The demand for energy from the grid is generally higher between the hours of 11am – 4pm. Needless to say, this is the time frame when the price of electricity peaks. However, it just happens to be the period when solar panels reach their maximum production capacity. Using energy produced by your solar panels during this time frame will help you to save lots of money on your electricity bills as you will avoid buying high-cost electricity from the grid.
Low Maintenance Costs
Solar Panels are very low maintenance. Just ensure that they are not dirty, giving them a quick clean every year so that they can keep generating as much electricity as possible. However, at some point during your solar panels life you will likely need to replace the inverter, which is a key part of the system. These usually have a lifespan of between 10-20 years and are normally covered by a manufacturer warranty for 5-10 years.
Solar panels do not produce noise pollution or greenhouse gas emissions. They do not pollute our water and unlike nuclear power plants, they use very little water. Clean energy is created without releasing anything into the atmosphere.
Coupled with a battery storage unit, you can have access to free electricity 24 hours a day, even when the sun isn’t shining. You will also be less vulnerable to blackouts and power cuts.
Increase The Value Of Your Property
Solar panels can help to increase the value of your property. A more efficient home that generates its own energy may be more attractive to prospective buyers, especially those who are eco-conscious.
As solar panels have become more and more popular with businesses and homeowners the demand for solar panel engineers locally and nationally has continued to grow rapidly. This has helped to boost the economy and positively affect local communities.
Cheaper Than Ever To Install
Advancements in technology, increased demand and a more competitive marketplace mean that the price of solar panel installation is cheaper than it has ever been. It is nearly 50% cheaper to install a solar PV system today than it was in 2011.
