6 Good Reasons to Install Solar Panels
For the past several decades, we are witnesses of change in thinking of an average person. Instead of thinking backward, “What was wrong?”, we started thinking “What can be better?”. This is the case when it comes to solar power source. To create better tomorrow, we had to think up something yesterday, and start using it today. Here are the reasons why.
It is less known that many countries in the world actually have quite old power grid, and that might represent major problem in near future. USA, for example, may or may not face crisis in the future, if something is not done. This large investment will not pay off on a longer run, for we will get only the transmitters of power. With solar system, we gain power source as well.
For now, solar power source is used only as the additional source of electricity, but the good thing is that it can be changed. Literally putting a few panels on your rooftop will make you free of relying on others. This means that in case of a major attack, or natural disaster, damage done would be far smaller.
Being highly dependable on fuel , we need alternative power source, and we need it fast. Majority of these additional sources are very “green” by nature, for there is no combustion, just pure and clean energy.
Depending on fuels that may run out eventually is a risk, but the Sun will not run out for at least five billion years. Only one potential setback with this power source is that areas on Earth with less sunny hours during the year may have potential trouble, but that can be easily overcome, by combining several alternative power sources.
Self-sustaining [“Pic 3 – Alexandria tour” goes here]
If you are watching AMC’s TV show, “The Walking Dead”, you will notice that cities of Woodberry and Alexandria are relying on solar power, and are the only ones which have potential to last as havens for humans. This scenario can be applied easily, for in case of any worldwide catastrophe, we could still believe that self-sustaining cities exist.
Easy to mount
You will need professional help to install solar panels, but besides that, it is rather easy work. Depending on where you install them, you will need either stable decking supports, or adequate roof base. First installments are great for huge, open spaces, such as farms, while the second is better for urban areas. Installations required are consisted of several controllers and batteries, but that is not a rocket science. Pretty easy for an average man to maintain it.
When all the things above are taken into consideration, we can surely say that our future will depend on solar panels. That is why it is of utmost importance to start getting used to them now.
