As you make the decision to switch to solar energy, you are bound to come across misconceptions and misleading information. Here, we debunk four common myths about solar energy systems.
It’s no secret that solar panels are a great investment when it comes to being environmentally conscious and energy efficient. If you're hoping to buy photovoltaic panels in the future, it's important to know how long you'll be able to use them.
But how do you ensure that your panels will last a long time?
In the United States and many other developed countries, solar power is considered one of the more affordable forms of energy and sources of electricity. According to a 2020 report published by Ember – a climate-focused organization, renewable sources of energy such as Solar are increasing their footprint across the globe. Carbon-free sources of power are nearly surpassing coal power generation. As a matter of fact, coal power generation dropped by almost nine percent in the first half of 2020, and a third of that drop is directly attributed to carbon-free power sources.
If you're thinking about taking a plunge into solar energy, it's never been a better time. Prices of solar panels have dropped by more than half in the past decade and installation times are down nearly 90 percent.
And with the latest advances in solar technology, homeowners now have access to an income-generating asset that will pay for itself in short order.
Shortly, you’ll discover how all these adds up to the benefit of the average homeowner.
But first, here is...
While Election news and the COVID-19 Pandemic have wreaked havoc on the US economy, 2021 is beginning with a surge on renewable energy. The promise of a Green New Deal, the hope of rejoining the Paris Agreement, and an overall worldwide commitment to carbon neutrality are giving all renewable energies a jumps-start to a new year.
In its annual World Energy Outlook published on Tuesday, October 13, 2020, the IEA (International Energy Agency) said that renewables are expected to overtake coal as the primary means of producing electricity by 2025.
