Solar panels are a good way to offset energy costs, reduce the environmental impact of your home and your business and contribute greatly to energy independence. Globally, many companies are using solar energy and it is the time that even local small businesses in Kenya made a move that will not only save them but also the future generations. If you are willing to install solar panels either for your organisation or for your residential home, here are the benefits you could be looking at both in the long and short term.
Reduced or elimination of energy bills
Our country is placed along the equator and the sun is almost always shining. This means it is very possible to even produce more solar energy than is being consumed. At almost no single point will you be required to have another electricity source because you are unlikely to run out of power if you don’t need too much power. Our cold season is not too cold as well, therefore you are mostly assured of continuous energy production all year round. Although sunny days will produce more solar energy, solar panels will continue to draw energy even when the weather is cloudy. Indirect, or diffused, sunlight will still help to power your home.
A limitless source of energy
Researchers have established that the sun radiates more energy on the planet earth in one hour that the world uses in one year. It is a limitless source of energy you can rely on that is assured production every single day with no fuel input or cost. The sun provides more than enough energy to meet the whole world’s energy needs, and unlike fossil fuels, it won’t run out anytime soon. As a renewable energy source, the only limitation of solar power is our ability to turn it into electricity in an efficient and cost-effective way.
It has been said before that our environmental conservation measures are in the endgame now. It is important that every single day we are cautious of what we let out into the air and how much of the natural resources we keep consuming. Hydro-electric power and fossil fuels both have harmful effects on the environment while solar and wind have none. Solar panels derive clean and pure energy from the sun, and installation of solar panels in your offices or your home help combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the collective dependence on fossil fuels.
