Have you been thinking about investing in a solar PV system? If you’re unsure about whether the cost of solar is worth it, there are many excellent reasons to add solar panels to your home or business, and The LeverEdge’s solar PV system kits make it easy to get started. Here are the 5 best benefits of solar PV systems.
Benefits of Solar PV Systems
Solar photovoltaic systems, also known as solar PV systems or solar electric systems, have many benefits for both you and the environment.
Better for the Environment
The most obvious reason to switch to solar is that it’s so much better for the environment than using fossil fuels. In addition to solar energy itself being clean, it doesn’t require any carbon-emitting transportation to get from where it is produced to where it’s needed to produce energy like gas or coal do. That means the environmental benefits of solar energy are twofold.
Since most scientists agree that humans are contributing to climate change, every bit you can do to reduce your carbon footprint helps make a difference.
Increased Home Value
Solar systems add value to a home and may increase your house’s resale value. The increased value will vary depending on your location and other factors, but a solar PV system may increase your home’s value by an average of $15,000. Just about anything that increases your home’s resale value is worth the investment.
Being able to produce some of your own energy from the sun will save you money compared to buying energy from the local power company. The amount of money you save each month will vary depending on several factors, including:
- Solar PV system size
- How many hours of direct sunlight your system gets
- Local electricity rates
- Angle and size of your roof
- How much electricity you use
Quiet and Unobtrusive
Unlike some other forms of power, such as a gasoline-powered generator, solar PV systems are quiet. Solar panels are also more unobtrusive than some other types of power, like windmills.
Solar panels are so reliably low-maintenance that they’re used to power nearly every satellite orbiting the earth. Space agencies like NASA can’t easily send a repair person out to fix those solar panels, and your solar PV system shouldn’t require much maintenance, either.
