Myth Busters – Solar Energy

true-falseMyth #1: Solar power is too expensive.

Fact: No so! Solar energy is not just for the wealthy. With enticing and generous incentives and pay backs available to all home owners, and a reduced power bill every month, every income bracket can find a solar application that’s appropriate for their budget and lifestyle. The savings in energy costs which many experience by installing a solar system can translate to extra money for other things. Recently financing for solar systems has become available, making it easier for consumers to purchase installations with little or no money down, taking advantage of one of the very few home related purchases which will pay for itself in the long run.

Myth #2: Solar systems require unforeseen maintenance.

Fact: The only maintenance you will ever perform on your solar panels is an occasional rinse, if even that. There may also come a time when rubbish that has landed on the panel must be removed. There are no moving parts when it comes to solar panels, which means nothing to break or repair – ever.

Myth #3: Solar backup and storage is complicated and costly.

Fact: Often times solar systems will capture more energy than is needed. When these systems are connected to the power utility grid, the extra energy can flow directly to that grid and provide power to others. The surplus of power which gets fed to the grid makes your meter spin backwards, providing lower utility costs, and credits for future utility usage. This is called net metering. Every system that is connected to the grid will never need a battery or backup system, making solar power generation and use simple and inexpensive.

Myth #4: Solar panels will damage the roof.

Fact: Solar panels are exceptionally strong. They can take a beating and stay in perfect condition. Because of this, they are able to protect your roof, if they are situated there, and serve as a barrier to the weather. In addition to a special rail system which holds the solar panel in place without ever coming in contact with your roof, inventors have come up with various different panel styles and choices to suite every taste providing both form and function in one sleek package.

Myth #5: You should wait for newer solar technology.

Fact: This is the age of burgeoning renewable energy technology. However, the exception is solar, with very little advancement or change for the past 50 years that it’s been in existence. There is occasional progress and improvement to the way that solar photovoltaic cells are designed or the materials which are used to make them, but in the grand scheme of things very little has changed with the reliable and lasting materials available today.
