This is quite simple really. Not only are you helping to save our planet by reducing your carbon footprint, and reducing your reliance on fossil fuels, but you’re also making money at the same time with very little effort required on your part. If for example, you produce more energy than your household requires, any excess energy will be sold back to the National Grid and be available for use in other homes.
Solar PV’s are also extremely reliable and come with a 20 year guarantee. Once installed, the panel requires no work on behalf of the consumer for maintenance purposes
Solar energy is fast becoming a primary source of global power. The International Energy Agency (IEA) predicts that installed solar will overtake other forms of energy, apart from gas, by 2040.
Even in the short term, the IEA forecasts that renewable energy will grow at 50% per annum over the next 5 years, of which 60% is attributed to solar. To put this in perspective, this increase in energy generation is equivalent to the total current power capacity of the United States. (Invictus)
