With the rise of a more eco-conscious society its becoming a more and more frequent solution to use solar panels as a renewable source of energy in your home. While it has been widely criticised for being inefficient, solar energy has been proved to be extremely beneficial for both the economy and the environment. In this blog we will be discussing the benefits of installing Solar Energy in time for Spring.
Probably the most obvious reason for the installation of solar energy is the amount your bills will drop. The amount of money you save on your bills will depend purely on your electricity or heat usage, the more you are using, the more you are saving on average. Not only will you be saving on your electricity bills, but there is also a possibility to receive payments for the surplus energy that you export back to the grid. As a result, once installed, solar energy is completely free and is a great way to save money on your heating bills in the long term.
The most important thing is that solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. It is available every day and can be harnessed wherever you are in the world. Unlike other sources of energy, we cannot run out of solar. It is accessible for as long we have the Sun which is an estimated 5 billion years away from dying, according to scientists. Therefore, its longevity will never be an issue once installed in your home.
Solar energy systems generally don’t require a lot of maintenance. The only possible issue is cleaning them, a couple of times per year will do the job and if you’re having doubts, specialist cleaning companies have plenty of experience and can offer servicing on the job for around £25-£35. In addition, most reliable solar panel manufacturers offer 20-25 years warranty, meaning you don’t have to worry about any issues.
