Solar Panel Benefits
Solar panels are extremely reliable as there are no moving parts so you don’t have to worry about replacing anything.
In fact, most people generate electricity for 1,000s of hours with little or no maintenance.
Solar cells make no noise while collecting energy. There are no other renewable energy sources that are completely silent.
In the long run, solar electricity is cheaper than buying it from the power companies. There is a start up cost, but then it starts paying for itself.
There are a huge variety of solar panel systems available. This means anyone can get into solar, there’s an entry point for just about everybody.
You’re not required to connect to the power grid. You can be completely self-sufficient and live off-the-grid if you want to. Imagine never paying another monthly bill.
What are the benefits of solar panels?
Installing solar panels on your property will instantly cut your carbon footprint on the world. It is reported that during its lifetime, PV cells will cut the average household’s carbon dioxide emissions by some 25 tonnes.
Another great benefit to solar panelling is the amount you’ll save on bills, both monthly and annually. PV panels can generate at least 40-50% of the electricity needed to power your home.
Installing PV cells will raise the value of your home, as the energy saving bonus will be a welcome attraction for potential buyers.
If your solar panels are generating more electricity than your home requires, you can sell surplus energy back to the National Grid, using the FITs scheme.
You can store the electricity on batteries for a day when the weather is overcast and sunlight is restricted.
Solar panels do not always need direct sunlight to generate electricity and even in the winter, they will still cut the costs of your bills.
Sell your excess electricity
You earn a fixed income for every kilowatt of electricity you generate and use in your property plus an additional amount when you export any surplus back to the grid.
Most governments provide some kind of energy saving grants for people purchasing solar energy systems.
Solar technology is constantly improving. Solar installations are increasing every year, most of which are small home systems.
