Solar panels are becoming widespread as more and more people are making efforts to conserve non-renewable energy. If you didn’t know, solar panels are groups of photovoltaic cells (or solar cells) that use the sun’s energy to be converted to electricity. These cells are made up of silicon and are connected to a circuit to which converted energy flows. Solar energy is a renewable source of energy so utilizing this is a great way to help save the earth.
There are many advantages in using solar panels. First is that it uses the sun which will always bring energy. The sun has an enormous amount of power and only a fraction of this is used by man. Increasing the use of solar panels will better maximize this free source of energy.
Second is that using solar panels will decrease the cost of your electricity in the long run. It is low maintenance so you don’t have to continuously clean it (2-3 times a year would do) and the cost of installing it and buying it is only once unless you plan on increasing the number of solar panels you have. The more you have, the less you will use electricity coming from your local supplier. Moreover, if your Florida solar panel company is trustworthy, you will have at least 20 years as warranty. In that span of time, they will take care of all the concerns you have regarding the solar panels.
Third, is that there are $0 upfront ways to go solar without having to spend a dime out of pocket. You can literally replace a rising electric bill with a fixed solar payment that never goes up. Imagine trading out a bill that you must always pay aka electricity with a solar payment that will end and you will own the system!
Fourth is that Net Metering is a law in the state of Florida. That means that the utilities are required to purchase your excess solar power at the retail rate and credit you. They buy your solar power that you don’t need, sell it to your neighbor, and then credit you back. This way energy storage like batteries is not essential as your utility acts like a giant battery!
