Solar energy has become the trend amongst Australian households, many people still don’t have a clear understanding of the importance and benefits of solar power. As solar companies, it is important for us to show customers the importance of solar panel installation, as we explain the solar energy benefits.
SOLAR IS CLEAR AND SAFE
Solar is a safer alternative to replace fossil fuels like coal and gas. Also, it is a safer alternative for nuclear energy, due that even if nuclear fission generates huge amounts of power, it still generates pollution in the form of nuclear waste and represents a potential risk for environmental disasters as we have seen in the past with Chernobyl or Fukushima. In terms of capacity, the energy produced by solar has doubled from the last decade and will continue to increase as governments around the world are boosting efforts to clean their carbon footprint. The importance of solar power is certain and will play an enormous role in the world’s transition to renewable energy.
- SOLAR ENERGY IS A FREE SOURCE OF ENERGY
The sun is an infinite source of clean energy, and nobody can monopolize the sunlight. Your solar energy system will begin saving money the second it’s turned on; nevertheless, you will see the benefits in the mid and long term. Once your solar panel installation is done, you will start generating solar panel savings and you will reduce the amount of pollution created by fossil fuels by reducing the consumption of the energy these non-renewable energy sources produce.
- ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
Get a solar panel installation done and you will become less dependent on the energy produced by the grid. As an energy generator, you don’t have to buy as much energy as before, as you will generate your own free energy at zero cost with your solar panel system. And if you have a battery you can keep utilising the energy harnessed by your solar energy system even after the sun goes down.
- ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY
You will contribute to the environment by producing clean energy. Producing energy from power plants implies burning several tons of fossil fuels every year. When your energy comes directly out of your solar system on your roof, you are not producing pollution at all.
- LOW MAINTENANCE
Once installed, your solar energy system requires little or no maintenance. They’re typically installed at an angle that permits rain to run off freely, washing most of the dust and dirt away. So long as you keep them from turning into blocked by dust, solar panels might last for over 25 years with little loss in efficiency. However, it is always recommended to do quick maintenance every year by checking the condition of the panels and washing them if required to get maximum solar panel savings.
- REDUCED OPERATING COSTS
Probably the most genuine and substantial causes to go solar are the savings on the energy bill. The electricity a solar system produces offsets your electrical utilisation, considerably decreasing (sometimes up to zero) your electricity bill. For extra information on how this works, please read our blog on how to get a $0 bill with solar.
- GOOD RETURN ON INVESTMENT
When a business considers any massive financial investment, it must have a significant return and a brief payback interval. A Solar energy system usually has a payback interval of three to 5 years, depending on system size and financing solution utilised. So, after you recover your investment, all financial benefits and savings will go directly to your pocket.
