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
everyday. We

Reduces Electricity Bill


Since you will be meeting some of your energy needs with the
electricity your solar system has generated, your energy bills
will drop. How much you save on your bill will be dependent
on the size of the solar system and your electricity or heat
usage. Moreover, not only will you be saving on the electricity
bill, but if you generate more electricity than you use, the
surplus will be exported back to the grid and you will receive
bonus payments for that amount (considering that your solar

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