Switching to Solar Power Energy to Run Your Home
December 12th 2011
Our worldwide need for electricity keeps on increasing every day, creating more environmental problems from the carbon emissions produced. Fortunately solar power has become very suitable alternative to burning dirty pollution producing fossil fuels. The sun is an extremely powerful source of clean renewable and readily attainable energy for us to tap into.
Some people have come up with the idea that if we collect this powerful sun energy and convert into electricity and then place it into batteries we could actually supply everyone in the world with enough electricity that can last for a whole year! Unfortunately no one has found a viable way to do this yet, but the sun will be there for a very long time, so solar power is completely renewable as it will never expire or run out. Solar power has become more and more popular because it is continually becoming more efficient & affordable for consumers, especially in countries like Australia whose governments are providing generous incentives and rebates.
There is some important information that you need to know about solar power before actually deciding to purchase one for your own use. Here are some of the benefits that solar power can give you;
Solar power does not cost any money. You just need to make an initial investment to purchase the panels and have it fitted.
Solar panels last for a very long time, at least 20 years with little maintenance. This means that you should be able to pay off the costs of the investment quite quickly through savings from your power bill; at current prices it takes 4-7 years.
Solar power is very environmentally friendly. Burning of fuels usually releases pollution and greenhouse gases into our environment; which now resulted to the global warming we are experiencing. It is no surprise that so many people have readily adopted solar power, as so many want to help save the environment and be more responsible about their carbon footprint every day.
Before purchasing the solar panels, speak to a company in your area who specialises in solar PV systems and who will make an appointment to come to your home and do an on-site assessment. They should look at the physical features of your roof and surrounds, what your current electricity usage is, and your available budget, and then design a system for you accordingly that will give the best return so that you can pay off your initial cost as quickly as possible. This will be influenced by any government rebates you have access to, and any extra schemes that are in place like the feed in tariff. In Australia the details of these vary depending on where you live, but again your solar provider should be able to give in depth advice.
