Why should you get solar panels in 2020?

If you have previously thought about having solar panels installed in your home but have not gone through with the installation due to worries over initial costs and how effective these panels will be at reducing your energy costs, then 2020 could be the year that you finally bite the bullet and go over to the green side.

Why?

Solar panels have never been cheaper to install

Due to an increase in demand and the development of new, more cost effective manufacturing processes, solar pv is at an all time low price.

In fact, you can expect to pay up to 50% less for a solar pv system now than you would have done only 8 years ago.

Solar panels allow you to protect yourself from increasing energy tariffs

If you are able to generate the majority of your energy from your solar panels, you will, in turn, have to pay less for electricity from the utility grid.

Although many people are under the misconception that sunlight is needed for your solar pv to generate energy, it is in fact, daylight that makes the process possible.

Therefore, you can generate sufficient power in the day to use in the evening and at night when you and your family are more likely to be at home using power.

If you do choose to invest in solar panels for your home, you can save up to £250 per year on your electricity bill depending on where you live in the country. As a rule, the further south you are, the more you will save.

Solar panels reduce your carbon emissions

Although not specific to 2020, using solar to generate your own energy can have a massively positive impact on the environment.

In fact, by using solar for a year, you can save almost a tonne of CO2, a number that is only set to increase with the emergence of solar storage.

Solar storage batteries are now readily available and cheap

If you don’t already know about solar storage batteries and the effect that they can have on your ability to save energy and, therefore, save money, then you are in for a treat.

Solar storage batteries effectively allow you to save up any energy you have generated from your solar panels, meaning you can be even less reliant on the utility grid.

Providers such as Telsa are now providing homeowners with affordable solar storage batteries meaning that you can store any excess energy that you don’t need and use it another time rather than having to be reliant on selling it back to the grid.

Solar panels need very little maintenance

Once you have paid the initial cost of your solar panels and their installation, you will not incur many other costs as solar panels require very little maintenance rather than occasional cleaning.

Therefore, you can just sit back and relax and reap the benefits of free energy! Get in touch with us today here!
