Why We Need the Solar Energy?
For ourselves - Solar Power Is A Free Source of Energy
1. One of the biggest reasons for going solar is we can eliminate or reduce our electricity cost.
The saving of installing a solar panel system at home would much higher than we paid for this kit. For example, we paid $200 as an average monthly electric bill which would balloon to a $60,000 paid over 25 years.
However, the savings continue to grow every year over the 25 years lifespan, a solar panel system, while the electricity prices rising.
By installing the 5kW solar system, the most common domestic type, we can easily protect ourselves against unpredictable increases in utility prices, and enjoy cheap electricity the entire day - the sun will never increase its rates.
2. Solar energy also boosts our independence on electricity.
If you are planning to take a travel with RV through the remote area or dry camps without power hookups(boondocking), solar energy would be necessary to generate the power and get long-term savings compared to the gas generator.
Over time, the costs of running a gas generator will much exceed the payment for installing a solar panel system.
3. More application we can do:
- Solar panel system charging the battery bank can help store electricity for using in nighttime and rainy days.
- Solar energy kit is possible to be used for heating by deploying solar thermal systems that convert the sunlight into heating solutions.
- Do-it-yourself (DIY) projects to have fun in learning solar panel system setup.
For environment – Clean, green source of energy
The most commonly known about solar energy is it represents the energy of clean and green sources. It is a safe alternative that can replace current fossil fuels like coal or gas, that produce air and water and land pollution, generate electricity.
The traditional electricity, that heavily relies on fossil fuels such as coal or natural gas, not only bad for the environment but also limited resources. The World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) pointed that electricity generation from fossil fuels would cause pollution of air, leading to acid rain, damaged forest areas, affected agricultural production leading to loss of billions of dollars worldwide.
However, the use of solar energy will eliminate these unsafe, unclean consequences from using conventional fossil fuels. It's a great way to reduce our carbon footprint.
There’s nothing about solar power that pollutes mother nature. Solar power doesn’t release any greenhouse gasses, and except for needing a source of clean water to function, it uses absolutely no other resources.
Sunlight received by the earth in one hour is enough to meet the annual energy needs of all people worldwide according to National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
