Solar energy plays a herculean role in reducing future carbon emissions, ensuring clean air and sustainable energy for our future generations. It can be used in many ways, including heating, cooling, electrical power, lighting and environmental clean-up as well. Here are the top 5 reasons you should go solar:
Reduces Electric Delivery Charges
Electrical energy from power plants, grids and sub-stations are transported to consumers through a huge extensive network. The longer the distribution path, the greater the power loss will be because of the length of the transmission. By having solar panels on your roof, you basically have your own power plant and don’t have to worry about transmission items as you are producing your own electricity! You are also cutting down on the monthly delivery charge for your electricity as well as now you are generating your own power.
Free Energy Source
We need to take the utmost advantage of our free natural resources, the most potent being the sun. Your roof mounted solar power system will start saving you money from the moment it’s turned on. The longer you have your solar power generation system, the more money you will save on your electric bill, all while supporting a greener environment and the reduction of your carbon footprint. Apart from electricity generation, the energy generated by the sun can also be used for heating purposes, including solar thermal systems.
Reduction Of Blackouts
With constantly increasing energy demands, power plants are always under pressure to generate and supply energy to their customers on a daily basis. This leads to frequent upgrades and maintenance to their networks, which can increase the price customers pay for their electricity needs. Solar power decreases the strain and volume on electric lines, which in turn creates less blackouts as solar customers are generating their own power and not using any electricity from electric lines.
Start Saving From Day 1
Once your solar system is turned on, you will have instant savings on your electric bill since you are now generating your own power. In some cases, you can even make money by going solar as some electric providers will pay you for an overproduction your system creates. As stated above, you will also lower your electric delivery charges as well and now most of your energy will come from solar. You are always going to have an electric bill at your house, so why not reduce it and possibly make money as well by going solar? It truly is a win-win situation!
Increase The Resale Value Of Your Home
Not only can you save money each monthly by going solar, but you can reap the benefits of it as well when you sell your house. A study conducted by the Department of Energy with an average system size of 5kW found solar reduces the days your house is on the market by 50% and can increase your home value by over $20,000. Here is an additional bonus as well – solar panels do NOT increase your property taxes in Texas!
