Energy Solutions: 4 Myths About Solar Power￼
There are multiple reasons to look for alternative energy solutions. Whether you want to attempt to lower your energy bills or help the environment, many homeowners are looking for ways to supplement or replace the power they get from the electrical grid. The most common option for an alternative energy source is solar panels. At Renewables Worldwide, our goal is to bring sustainable energy to as many people as possible through solar power.
There are a lot of misconceptions about solar energy solutions. Let’s bust some myths about solar power.
Solar panels don’t work when it’s cloudy.
While it’s true that solar panels work best on sunny days, they still draw power when it’s overcast. Even when it’s cloudy, sunlight still reaches the earth. That’s why we don’t all fumble around in the dark on a rainy day. Depending on the thickness of the cloud cover, solar panels can still produce 10-25% of their usual power output.
Solar power isn’t worth the cost.
As the technology progresses and becomes more widely available, solar panels have also become much more affordable. And as electricity rates rise, solar panels have a much better return on investment than they did even just a few years ago.
Solar panels damage your roof.
If you install the solar panels properly, they won’t damage your roof. In fact, they can actually protect your roof by covering it. Even if the roof under a solar panel is already damaged, it’s easy to remove the panel and repair it. Solar panels aren’t directly affixed to the roof but are mounted on top of it.
Renters can’t use solar power.
Home and business owners aren’t the only people who can benefit from solar power. If you rent your home, office, or retail space, you can join a community solar program. Community solar is our focus at Renewables Worldwide so that as many people as possible can have access to renewable energy and solar power.
