Installing solar panels significantly reduces monthly electricity bills and dependence on the power grid. This energy independence protects against rising electricity costs and volatile fuel prices. With analysts forecasting continued increases in electricity rates, solar remains a cost-effective solution and long-term investment in the future.
Studies have shown properties with solar systems sell up to 20 percent faster and at a 17 percent premium compared to homes without such systems. A solar installation makes your property more attractive to buyers, increasing its resale value.
Unlike energy generated by fossil fuels, solar doesn’t release harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) emission. Sustainable carbon-free energy solutions such as solar are crucial to slowing the pace of climate change and preventing further damage to the environment.
The continued use of fossil fuels generates high levels of carbon dioxide and air pollution. The air pollution causes harmful health problems and CO2 emissions contribute to climate change. CO2 has a harmful impact on our environment by altering weather patterns, rising sea levels and increasing ecological damage.
Sunlight is free, infinite and easily accessible, unlike fossil fuels, which need to be mined, extracted and transported. These processes cause serious land and ecological degradation, and carry the risk of disasters such as oil spills.
In 2013, an estimated 1.59 metric tons of CO2 were released in India from energy-related sources. In contrast, renewable energy sources such as solar power release little to no CO2 emissions. In fact, as more homes and businesses switch to solar, we can collectively help reduce the harmful effects of carbon dioxide emissions and pollution.
