With the threat of Global Warming becoming a reality day by day, Solar Panels are an effective way to harness renewable resources.
In addition to this, there are many other benefits that come with installing a Solar Panel Roof.
1. The roof saves you and ultimately, society, money. Making this switch can save you thousands of dollars over the course of many years. With extra money saved here, you will have money to save, or perhaps to invest in another part of your home.
2. The energy is reliable and secure. We all know the sun will rise and fall daily, and this provides us with an energy source we can count on. In regards to being secure, the sun isn’t something up for purchase and trade. There is no political issues related to harnessing the sun’s power.
3. Investing in the sun’s power will create jobs!
While the benefits of the sun’s power are plentiful, there is one disadvantage.
Even as the sun can be reliable, it can also be unreliable. If you have some days that are cloudy, the panels will not produce any electricity, and you will have to use a backup method to provide some power. (This could be batteries, candles or lights) Sadly, this tells us that we can’t be 100% powered by sunlight, just yet. Even though this disadvantage MIGHT sway some people, consider this: The sun often shines during the day when people are using electricity. During the middle of the night, many people are sleeping and not likely using their lights.
