Solar Panels Benefits

There are many solar benefits that homeowners can enjoy. Some of these benefits include reduced energy costs, increased home value, solar rebates, and tax credits.

Solar panels can help reduce a homeowner’s energy costs by providing a source of clean, renewable energy. In addition, solar panels can often increase the value of a home. Many homeowners also qualify for solar rebates and tax credits, which can further reduce the cost of solar panels. Even sometimes going as far as making the system basically free.

Solar panels can be used for a wide variety of applications, including remote power supply systems for cabinets, telecommunications equipment, remote sensing and, of course, power generation from residential and commercial solar energy systems. A solar electrical system is potentially less expensive and can provide power for more than three decades if properly maintained. With the simplest maintenance, most solar energy systems should continue to operate and produce energy for 25 to 35 years.

Solar energy systems are not suitable for places where there is a lot of shade during the day. If your area experiences frequent power outages, solar power can keep the light going. Many solar panel installers also offer the option to add a backup battery so that when the sun goes down you can still use your solar panels and not use power from the main grid. A backup battery will add at least $5,000 to your total system cost, but will provide you with power in case of a power outage in your area without requiring a noisy generator.
