Benefits of Solar Energy

Renewable Energy Source
Solar energy is a truly renewable energy source. It can be
harnessed in all areas of the world and is available

causing tensions between countries that have oil and the ones that don't. According to the research data. there would be no problems because it is available to everyone. our economy is based on oil. the average home with solar panels in India uses 8. Also. This type of resource is spread unevenly though out the earth. 1 source of carbon dioxide emissions.756 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year. Low Maintenance Costs Solar Solar energy systems generally don’t require a lot of maintenance.  . If we used solar energy. there is no wear and tear. our economy would not fluctuate due to oil prices. after covering the initial cost of the solar system. as there are no moving parts. Also. Solar power is sometimes described as a zero emissions or emissions-free form of energy. Stabilise Economy Right now. so cleaning them a couple of times per year will do the job. Decreases Greenhouse Gas Emissions The burning of fossil fuels for energy remains the world's No. and it is true that greenhouse gas emissions from solar are negligible. If we switched from oil to solar energy. you can expect very little spending on maintenance and repair work. The inverter is usually the only part that needs to changed after 5-10 years because it is continuously working to convert solar energy into electricity (solar PV) and heat (solar thermal). Savings can further grow if you sell excess electricity at high rates during the day and then buy electricity from the grid during the evening when the rates are lower. So. Most reliable solar panel manufacturers give 20-25 years warranty. You only need to keep them relatively clean. solar energy is completely free and it will always be available.panel system is connected to the grid). where as oil has very high prices and will not always be available. Switching from fossil fuels to solar power in India has the same emissions reduction effect as planting 155 trees every year.
