Solar energy costs are down about seventy percent since 2012, making it the most cost-effective time to go solar. Solar panels have become much cheaper to install and maintain, and the savings you receive from foregoing standard electricity will even further increase the savings you receive. Besides, while at one point you had to purchase your solar panel system out right, now there are multiple financing options to allow you to slowly purchase a system over time, or if you just want to borrow a system, you can lease a solar panel system as well. With the increase of multiple purchase and lease options available, solar panel usage has become much easier to obtain for the common household.
Solar panels have come a long way since they were invented in the 1950’s. We use solar panels in space, on businesses, and on houses, and have manufactured them so they can better withstand the elements, as well as time. Plus, most solar panels now come with warranties, making there quality and ability to withstand time much greater, allowing for the quality to warrant the cost. Solar panels are now manufactured to withstand extreme temperatures, and weather conditions such as hurricane force-winds.
Environmental Effects of Solar Panels
Solar panels utilize clean, pure energy from the sun. By using solar panel systems we are combating greenhouse gas emissions and natural gas. Standard electricity often utilizes fossil fuels to supply their energy, when used these fuels emit harmful gases that increase pollution in our air, and cause global warming. Plus, fossil fuels are a finite resource, which means that eventually we will run out. So, solar energy allows us to reduce the amount of air pollution in our air, and allow us not to contribute to global warming.
