Here at the Eco Renewables Group in Preston, we work across a variety of locations to install and maintain domestic and commercial solar panels. Solar panels are increasing in popularity, but what makes them so desirable? And what are the advantages of solar panels?
1. Reduces electricity bills
Firstly, one of the biggest advantages for home owners is that solar panel installation can reduce your electricity bill. The amount of money that you can save is dependent on the size of the panels you have installed, as well as the amount of electricity you tend to use. Having said that, many homeowners find that they are generating more electricity than they need, and with a grid-tie inverter, they can sell this electricity back to the grid. That’s a win-win in our book.
Secondly, solar panels are incredibly low maintenance. As a homeowner, all you need to do is keep them clean. A thorough clean, three times a year, should be more than efficient to keep your solar panels working well.
In addition, as solar panels do not not have moving parts, they are not susceptible to wear and tear. This means that parts tend not to break down or get warn out. As a result, you shouldnt have to fork out for an engineer.
Solar panels should last 20-25 years without any issues. However, your inverter may need to be changed between 5 and 10 years of use. This is because it is in use constantly converting solar energy into electricity.
3. Solar power is renewable
If your carbon footprint is something that concerns you, and you wish to take more responsibility, installing solar panels could be a great option. Solar power is truly renewable, unlike many other energy options available.
