Until the sun fizzles out, solar power will continue to be a very reliable energy source; our ability to harvest solar power is solely dependent on technology, location, cost, and legislation. The cost of solar panels has dropped by 80% since 2008 and it is expected to keep falling making it more affordable for everyone. As we have seen in just the last couple of years solar and renewable technology is ever increasing to not just make renewable forms of energy affordable but also more efficient and to fill the void to provide renewable energy at night with battery systems on a domestic scale, which is only going to improve.

When considering a solar system one of the most important things is the sizing of the system, too small and you are still paying for grid power or too big and it will take years to pay itself off. Choosing a size comes down to five main factors: 

  • Size of the premises
  • Amount of current and potential future energy consumption
  • What appliances you have in your house eg. aircons, pool, gas or electric water heaters and stoves, cloths dryer, etc.
  • Number of people
  • Lifestyle eg. full time employed, working from home, children at home or at school

Once these factors are taken into account you are on the way to the right size system for you without paying for something you don't need.

Helping the Enviroment

 A household rooftop solar panel system can reduce pollution by 100 tons of CO2 carbon dioxide in its lifetime and this includes the energy it took to manufacture the solar panels. Solar panels can improve future air quality for humans as well as the millions of birds, fish, and mammals that are negatively affected by pollution each year.

Solar technology can be distinguished into active and passive.

 Photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors which harness solar energy are examples of active solar technology. Passive technology includes constructing rooms to improve air circulation, orienting space to favorably use sunlight. 

Solar energy can provide power 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

 One of the common concerns voiced by homeowners when considering going solar is, “What would I do at night?” This is the resource’s most evident barrier towards reaching mainstream status, and solar energy storage providers are answering the call. A number of well-regarded brands have entered the solar storage space (including Tesla, LG, and Mercedes) and new competition and innovation is causing the cost of solar storage to plummet. In 2017, homeowners can purchase solar-plus-storage systems and be completely energy independent.
