Are you ready to go solar? Many Orlando residents have chosen this increasingly popular option. Increased durability, higher efficiency, and lower costs all make solar panels an attractive option. Still not convinced? Check out these three reasons to install solar panels on your home’s roof.
The Environmentally Friendly Option
Electricity derived from solar panels is some of the cleanest power available right now. Every bit of power that you generate from a panel installed on your own roof is power that hasn’t contributed to air pollution in your community. And this benefit lasts: panels now last for around 40 years. That’s a long time and a lot of clean energy. When the solar panels do reach the end of their functionality, they can be recycled rather than contributing to landfills.
The Work-from-Home Option
During the pandemic, many people were forced to shift their workplace to their own homes. The demonstrated viability of that shift means that a lot of those folks will continue to work from home long after the pandemic is over. More work from home, though, means more power consumption there, too. The lights will be on more often. Computers, wi-fi routers, and printers all use electricity. Even the HVAC systems are seeing extra duty. Solar panels can help to offset some of that energy use. All the electricity that you produce for yourself is that much less purchased from the utility company.
The Self-Sufficiency Option
While you might not be able to make a complete break from the established power grid, installing solar panels will certainly improve your self-sufficiency. Storms that roll through Orlando might knock out the power, but a home outfitted with solar panels will not be completely without electricity. Add high-capacity batteries to the system to store the energy and your home will be prepared for almost any emergency situation.
