Why is Solar the Future?

Solar power systems use energy from the sun to either produce electricity or heat water.


You can generate your own clean electricity with a solar panel system, and if you also have a small house or apartment, you can keep part of your money in cash while still earning a substantial return. If you invest your capital, there are even greater returns possible.


There are many types of solar power systems, ranging from small systems that cover specific needs to large grid-connected systems designed to provide electricity across a region.


These days, it’s easier than ever to get started with solar energy. If you want to test out how much your house uses at night or consider what size system would work best, there are some great apps to help you calculate costs and estimate your annual usage.


Grid-tied systems are connected to the electric grid and can therefore receive electricity from the grid, but they can usually produce more than their own needs.


With a home power system, you have control over what your energy costs will be. When the sun isn’t shining or the wind isn’t blowing, your utility may not be able to provide power when you need it most—when you want to run your appliances and keep your house cool in the middle of summer. A grid-connected system allows for periodic savings, so if something goes wrong with your local power supply, your system won’t suffer as much.


Off-grid systems are separate from the grid and are responsible for generating all their power.


Whether your goal is energy independence or just reducing your carbon footprint, an off-grid system can help you live healthier lives without depending on outside sources. An off-grid system includes any home technology that allows you to generate electricity, no matter how small—from wind turbines to solar panels.


Portable systems can be moved with a person as needed, while fixed systems are built into buildings and other structures.


With portable systems, you can move stored energy somewhere unavailable, like your home or car, which could lead to higher bills for that power. That means more people will likely choose portability when presented with the option.

That means you can use electricity generated by your system at no cost to you other than the initial installation. Plus, any excess energy that isn’t used will be stored in your battery bank for later when it may be more convenient to produce it.
