Benefits of installing solar PV systems on your rooftop
There is an increasing awareness and interest in using renewable energy. Many home owners and businesses are considering installing solar PV systems on their premises. Installing solar PV systems contributes to reduced electricity bills as well as saving the environment. When installed, whether on commercial, industrial or residential buildings, one relies less on the national electricity grid and more on clean energy which helps reduce pollution.
Solar PV systems need direct sunlight in order to function and generate electricity. In the GCC region there is plenty of sunshine all year round which contributes to more solar energy production.
Below are five benefits of installing solar PV systems on the rooftop of your home or businesses:
1. Renewable energy
The greatest source of energy is the sun. In fact, this energy that the earth receives in one hour is more than enough to meet the world’s consumption for a year. The sun is a natural, renewable and free energy source. No reserves are depleted unlike with fossil fuels, so this form or energy will never run out.
2. Reduced cost
Solar PV systems can significantly reduce your monthly electricity bills. Electricity is generated through solar panels and not from the utility provider. If solar PV systems generate more electricity than is used, the excess electricity is sent to the electricity grid. This process is called net metering.
3. Reduced carbon emission
Installing solar PV systems to power your home or facility enables you to go green and is beneficial for the environment. By using this energy, you do not burn fossil fuels as you would traditionally. Less carbon emission means less pollution for the environment.
Solar PV systems do not require a significant amount of maintenance in order to function properly. That does not mean that they do not need care. Regular inspection and cleaning are required in order for the panels to work efficiently. Solar PV systems also last for a long time. The lifespan of most panels is 25 years.
Solar PV systems generate power silently; therefore, they are great for both industrial and urban areas. They come in different sizes and shapes and can be installed on rooftops, ground mounted and building integrated.
