While there is so much information (and misinformation) scoring the internet, we all still want to know WHY SOLAR?
First off, what is solar? Solar is defined in the Oxford dictionary as:
- relating to or determined by the sun.
- relating to or denoting energy derived from the sun’s rays.
When we say solar energy, we are referring to harnessing the sun’s power and converting it into electricity. Crazy, right?
While this technology feels new, it’s actually been around for awhile but continues to improve year over year. In 1954, scientists discovered silicon, a material that when the sun hits it just right, it creates electricity. Silicon is a common semiconductor that can be found not only in panels but also in everyday items like computer chips.
Let’s deep dive into the advantages of Solar:
- Reduce or eliminate energy bill
- Renewable energy source
- Low maintenance costs
- Increase the market value of your property
- Weather dependent
