Should I Get Solar Power?
Here’s main Reasons Why People should Install Solar Panels.
Going solar has amazing benefits for your home, your family, business and the world at large
If you are a home or business owner and are still unsure if making the switch to solar energy is a good one for you, perhaps you should consider the . . .
1. IT'S GOOD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Every time we use dirty, non-renewable energy sources like coal, oil, and natural gas, we are supporting harmful processes that destroy that natural world around us and pollute our communities and ecosystems. Clean, sustainable power sources like solar minimize these negative effects and help combated climate change, provide a brighter future for ourselves and future generations. Unlike conventional power, solar produces no harmful emissions that hurt the environment. It’s a clean, renewable process that uses the most natural of all resources: the sun.
2. REDUCE YOUR POWER BILL
Yes, it’s true.
Going solar will save you money.
A LOT of it!
Solar panel technology is modular. This means you can completely cover the roof of your home or select optimal direct-daylight sections for installation. A complete installation covering your roof can easily eliminate your monthly bill entirely. A 3 KW Solar PV plant can save you anywhere from Rs, 40,000 to Rs. 55,000 per year. In 25 years, the system will for itself at least 5 times over. Solar is a fit and forget system that silently keeps putting money in your pocket.
3. SUPPORT THE SOLAR INDUSTRY
This is possibly as important as reducing carbon emissions. Consumers need to show the marketplace that they want to switch to solar energy. The more the market sees that homeowners, businessmen are going this route, the more investment goes into the industry. The more investments made in the industry, the greater the efficiency of the panels. It also lowers the cost, which is better for everyone.
4. GOING SOLAR CAN HELP IN INCREASING YOUR PROPERTY VALUE
According to numerous studies, homes with solar systems are likely to fetch higher prices on the real estate market than those without. That is why appraisers have taken solar installation into account when valuing homes for sale. And as more and more buyers become aware of solar systems, the demand for homes with installed solar panel systems continue to rise.
In fact, the homeowners who invested in solar made back at least as much they spent buying the system. Plus, homes with solar installed spent less time on the market.
5. GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES
Your government wants you to put solar panels on your roof. There are a tremendous amount of government programs aimed at supporting this industry. Facets of incentives depend on whether the system is for commercial or residential purposes. States with incentives typically have rebate-based incentives, production-based incentives or a combination of the two, all of which make the benefits of solar energy more accessible for the average citizen. The federal government also offers tax credits and grants for renewable energy systems.
According to the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the Central Government pays 30% of the benchmarked installation cost for rooftop PV systems. This subsidy is applicable in states that are in the general category. However, a subsidy of up to 70% of the benchmarked installation cost is offered in some states that lie in the special category -- North MNRE PV Rooftop Cell.
6. CREATE LOCAL JOBS
solar energy also provides a lot of good, local jobs for the community. Many people have transitioned to new careers in the solar industry because of all the homeowners placing solar panels on their rooftops. The more solar panels that go up, the more jobs they create. When you go solar through an installer like Divvy Solar, you are helping your economy as well.
7. ENERGY INDEPENDENCE
You can help to reduce energy dependence on energy. We will inevitably run out of oil, coal and natural gas. While we continue our consumption of these increasingly expensive and dangerous energy source, our national security and economy suffers. By increasing the capacity to harness solar power, we also help our country from the imminent price fluctuations in the global energy markets. Solar is one step in the right direction.
8. PROTECT YOUR ROOF
This is not to say that this will or should be your number one reason for putting solar panels up, but they will protect your roof. The panels themselves are easy to maintain. They provide an extra layer of protection for your roof that will delay the effects of weathering and reduce the amount of maintenance your roof needs.
9. SWITCHING TO SOLAR IS
EASIER THAN EVER BEFORE
Shopping for the right solar installation services used to be a long and arduous process. You could reasonably expect to spend weeks just finding the right company and several more weeks negotiating prices and finalizing the installation.
Luckily, those days are long behind us and making the switch to solar has never been easier. With our team of solar consultants to help you sort through your options, you can find the best solar solution for you in no time flat.
10. MINIMAL MAINTENANCE
Solar PV systems have no moving parts, and rain will wash off most of the dust and dirt, so they require little to no maintenance. System components hold manufacturer warranties for 25 years, which is longer than your air conditioning unit!
Going solar puts you ahead of the curve. Plus, there’s nothing way cooler than powering your entire home using energy from the sun, right?
