Domestic Solar Advantages are a “no brainer”

Domestic Solar energy is a resource that is not only sustainable for all energy consumption, it is indefinitely renewable (at least until the sun runs out in billions of years). It is about as natural a source of power as it is possible to generate electricity. The creation of solar energy requires little maintenance. Once the solar panels have been installed and are working at maximum efficiency there is only a small amount of maintenance required each year to ensure they are in working order.

There are continual advancements in domestic solar panel technology which are increasing the efficiency and lowering the cost of production, thus making it even more cost effective. During operation solar electricity power plants produce zero emissions.

A strong argument could be made for solar panels as a way of protecting your household against future price increases of electricity produced by more traditional energy sources (coal, oil and gas). As a provider of your own electricity from a renewable source, you can reduce your household’s dependence on fossil fuels and energy providers. In the long term, solar panels can be a real estate selling point and potentially add market value to your home.
