What are the advantages of installing Solar Panels?
Now let us look at some of the advantages of rooftop solar panel installations that you might come across after installing solar units to your home or other properties.
1. Increases the property value
Installing solar panels at home can help you increase the value of your property by up to 4% and in some cases even more. If your property is situated where frequent power cuts are a common issue then solar panel units can help you sell your property at higher rates. Buyers will willingly purchase the property at desired rates.
2. Fewer energy bills
Solar power reduces the cost of your energy bills and helps you save a lot of money. Generally, 1kw to 5kw solar panels are enough to supply power to homes with more than two-three rooms. In addition to that, these power units are capable of generating energy from sunlight even on cloudy days and eliminating the need to use local energy electricity or government units for your daily tasks.
3. Contributing to a better environment
Fossil fuel-generated electricity can leave disastrous effects on the environment such as pollution, scarcity of natural resources, and more. The solar energy system does not leave any such effects on the environment. It is one of the most effective and safest ways of generating electricity using renewable energy resources.
4. Save a lot of money
The major advantage of installing solar panels at home is that you can save a lot of money on monthly electricity bills. Therefore solar panels are considered as a one-time investment that helps you save a lot of money for the next few years.
5. Freedom from centralized grids
Once you have installed solar panels in your home there is no looking back to centralized private or government grids. You can enjoy your independent electricity and sell the same to earn some money. You can store excess energy and sell it to people in need in order to earn some money at the same time.
6. Tax credits and rebates
Lastly, governments also allow citizens to enjoy subsidies on solar panels. In this way no matter how much you pay on solar power cost or solar panel installation cost you will get a refund or 40% subsidy on solar panels for up to 3kw systems in India. Depending on the state rules you might earn a subsidy on solar systems of more than 3kw units.
