Benefits of Solar Energy


  • Global warming threatens the survival of human society, as well as the survival of countless species. Luckily, decades (or even centuries) of research have led to efficient solar panel systems that create electricity without producing global warming pollution. Solar power is now very clearly one of the most important solutions to the global warming crisis.

  • Electricity prices are predicted to rise massively over the next 20 years, which means the amount you'd save would as well. The savings depend on the system size, electricity use, whether you are at home during the day and other factors.

  • The rising and setting of the sun is extremely consistent. All across the world, we know exactly when it will rise and set every day of the year. While clouds may be a bit less predictable, we do also have fairly good seasonal and daily projections for the amount of sunlight that will be received in different locations. All in all, this makes solar power an extremely reliable source of energy.

  • On top of the above reliability benefit, no one can go and buy the sun or turn sunlight into a monopoly. Combined with the simplicity of solar panels, this also provides the notable solar power advantage of energy security.

  • Similar to energy security, solar power provides the great benefit of energy independence. Again, solar energy cannot be bought or monopolized and is free for all to use. Once you have an appropriate solar system on your roof, you essentially have an independent source of electricity. This is important for individuals, but also for cities, counties and even companies.
