8 good reasons to start using solar energy today
The sun radiates 170,000 terawatts of energy every single day making solar energy the most abundant resource on our planet. Not only is it abundant but it is also renewable as the sun has a lifespan of 9 to 10 billion years and isn’t about to die down soon.
Moreover, the progress made by scientists in the field of solar technology has now made it possible for the human race to harness the abundant energy of the sun. In fact, more and more homeowners and property developers are beginning to install solar panels in their homes, farms and commercial buildings.
Here are 8 valid reasons as to why you should start solar energy today.
Solar energy is free
Conventional energy resources such as coal, fuel or petroleum cost money to buy. They are also limited in quantity and are getting depleted by the day. Conversely, solar energy is produced by the photons of the son and has no cost at all. It is and will be free forever for everyone to use. Moreover, the growing developments of more affordable and efficient solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies have been playing a significant role in making solar cost-competitive with other energy sources.
Solar energy is environment-friendly
Using solar energy goes a long way in reducing the carbon footprint of our precious planet. When we choose to use solar power, we contribute to reducing the demand for coal and fossil fuels fully aware that these produce high CO2 emissions. Solar energy is also clean, sustainable and at the same time equally efficient as other energy resources. Solar modules will never release harmful gasses into the atmosphere and unlike other resources will only need sunlight to bring electricity into your home.
Solar energy can power your unused roof
You can transform your unused roof space into a free power source by using solar energy. Solar panels installed on your roof will collect sunlight and turn it into energy that can power your home appliances. Around 20 to 28 solar panels will generate 9,850 kWh in a year on an average; enough to cover your home’s energy consumption and that too at reduced electricity costs.
Solar energy reduces electricity bills
Generating your own electricity using solar panels means you no longer depend on your electricity company alone and there can be a substantial deduction in your monthly electricity bill, surcharges and other fees.
Solar energy can also be used during the night
The excess energy generated by solar panels during the day can be stored in batteries for use during the night or on a cloudy day making solar energy a very viable energy option.
Solar power is low maintenance
Post installation, solar panels require minimum maintenance since they have no moving parts except when they are installed with mechanical sun trackers. That is why solar panels are most cost-effective to maintain. Plus, they only require cleaning every two months and usually last for more than two decades. They are easy to clean too, which can be done manually using soft, non-abrasive cloth to wipe off the dirt and dust particles. The only concern is the inverter, which may need to be replaced after 15 years. With proper cleaning and care, even the inverter will last long.
Solar power can charge electric vehicles
All electric vehicles can have their batteries freely charged by using solar power. The combination of an electric vehicle along with solar panels is a good investment because not only will you reduce your electricity bills, you will also cut down on your car fuel costs at the same time making your planet a greener place to gift to your children.
Solar energy can provide emergency electricity
In cases of a natural catastrophe such as a category 5 super cyclone, power lines are often destroyed leaving people helpless. Solar energy can come to the rescue in times like these. In fact, when a super cyclone struck the Philippines in October 2020, people used the solar energy of their neighbors’ solar panels to recharge their cellphones to ask the government for emergency relief.
