The sun is the largest source of free energy you can utilize on this planet. It can provide enough power in just one minute that can supply the world’s electricity needs for a year. The renewable energy resource like the sun is also a sustainable and inexhaustible resource. Apart from electricity, you can also use solar energy for your home’s heating purposes. You can do the process by installing solar thermal systems and provide your house with free heated water. The system is also low maintenance which makes it an excellent investment for your home.
On warm spring days, we generate a lot more energy than we consume, and then we trade that with the utility. On hot summer days, when we run the air conditioning, or on cloudy days, we draw from the grid. Thus when solar is generating electricity we tend to buy less energy from the grid, hence it brings down our energy bill.
Apart from providing suitable power for your home, solar energy can also make use of the underutilized roof/land and generate substantial value for the area. Your roof can become a base for generating revenue.
No matter where you live, you most likely have some amazing tax credits for solar. Take advantage of them while you still can. Tax credits and rebates vary from state to state.
Solar power systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels on your home helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. Traditional electricity is sourced from fossil fuels such as coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to produce electricity, they emit harmful gases that are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Thus use of solar energy will bring own the carbon emission which in turn will reduce global warming and its impact on Climate Change.
