With the ever-growing effects of global warming, environmental conservation has become a top priority. That’s why different organizations around the world are looking to keep the overall carbon emissions at a minimum.
One of the ways to conserve the environment is by switching to greener sources of energy, such as solar panels. They are perfect for reducing environmental impact and can provide lots of other benefits like contributing to energy independence and supporting local businesses.
Are you looking to install a solar panel for your home? Here are the seven main benefits of installing solar panels in your home.
One of the most significant upsides of solar panels is that they can provide you with considerable savings. It might take 5 to 8 years for your system to pay itself, but you’ll enjoy almost free electricity for more than two decades. Going solar can significantly reduce your monthly utility bill immediately.
Solar panels produce clean energy from the sun and installing them in your home reduces our dependence on fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal. When you burn fossil fuels, they emit harmful gases, which then contribute to air pollution and climate change.
While fossil fuels cause water pollution and require significant water resources, solar energy doesn’t need water to operate. So, going solar hardly puts a strain on the world’s water supply.
Apart from helping you make significant savings on your utility bill; solar panel increases the value of your home. If you already have a solar PV system installed, it can add value if you’re planning to sell your house in future.
Utility companies are notorious for their unreliable and fluctuating electricity prices. With your solar panels installed and some simple math, you can calculate the amount of electricity you can generate and at what cost for the next 25 years.
Solar panels have a typical lifespan of 30 years, and during their lifetime, they require minimal maintenance. Solar PV systems have no moving, mechanical parts which require periodic replacement.
Rezeca offers 2 years free maintenance to all our clients, making 1 onsite maintenance visit per year. During this session, we will ensure the panels are clean and clear of any debris, and check on the electrical connections.
On sunny, cloudless days, you may end up producing more electricity than you need. In such cases, the utility company will buy any excess electricity generated. This amount will be credited of your monthly utility bill.
