5. Solar Is Affordable
Today’s solar systems are more affordable than ever before. Since 1980, there has been an average reduction of seven percent per year in the cost per watt of solar cells. As electricity prices continue to rise, it is always a good time to go solar
4. Solar Is Clean
Solar energy has almost no impact on the global climate. The energy generated is both clean and renewable. It can be used to supply needs currently met by coal-fired generation. The production of solar energy emits virtually no CO2 in the production process. System components can be recycled after their average 40 year lifespan, producing minimal waste.
3. Solar Is A Great Investment
There is considerable profit and money savings potential through generating renewable energy. Incentive programs provide an opportunity to generate passive income based on the production of your installed solar PV system. In order to harness a solar PV system’s capabilities, consideration must be paid to what programs are available, your energy consumption, the current cost of components and the available space for a system installation on your property. An investment in a solar-energy system may also improve the value of your home, thanks to its ability to lower the cost of heating and cooling (an attractive feature for potential home buyers!). Solar systems are a fantastic investment in your home and will become of great value whether you plan to stay in your home or sell it.
2. Solar Reduces Electricity Costs
During hours of peak electricity demand, utilities charge a premium rate for electricity. As more solar capacity is added, wholesale prices are reduced during peak hours. An oft-repeated myth is that solar is raiding costs for consumers. But where is the money going? Data from Germany shows that most of the subsidies flow on to households, business owners, and farmers.
