Alternate energy sources such as “solar panels” are picking up speed due to their obvious benefits. Prime reasons for their popularity, which is slow but expected to increase, include “lower utility bills” and “less harm to the environment”. By installing a solar panel, you can decrease the carbon footprint of your household by as much as 25,180 pounds of carbon dioxide on average, yearly.
Quick fact: Home solar penetration is less than 1 percent currently but it is expected to grow by 30 percent, reaching 83 million homes by 2020.
Environmental benefits aside, solar panel installation brings about a ton of benefits. Let’s take a look at a few notable ones.
Solar panels power the house by transforming sunlight into energy that is converted into electricity for households. This process is enabled through photovoltaic cells, which can be very costly to purchase initially. However, since its introduction, solar panel prices have dropped by as much as 60 percent, and with the many federal and local tax incentives, it could all be well worth it in the long run.
Renewable Energy Source
Solar power is a renewable energy source. After dark, storm, or rain, we all know that the sun will be up to power our homes the next morning. As opposed to this, the conventional electricity in our homes is powered by oil, which is a limited resource. It may not end anywhere in the near future, but once scarcity reaches a certain level, conventional means of electricity generation will face tough times.
Benefits Your Home As Well As the Environment
Solar panels will help lower your utility bills or eliminate them completely if you plan to power everything in your home with a solar panel. However, most people opt for 50 to 80 percent of their homes being powered by a solar panel, resulting in significant cost reduction in utility bills.
It creates no noise and generates no pollution harming the environment as opposed to electricity generating machines that emit harmful greenhouse gases.
