Advantages of Solar Power

Increasingly, people are looking for renewable energy solutions to provide the power we need to live our lives in the modern world. Fossil fuels are non-renewable; they use finite resources that will eventually disappear, become too expensive or too environmentally damaging to source. In contrast, renewable energy resources like solar energy are constantly replenished and will never run out.
1. Renewable & Sustainable
The sun provides a constant and consistent power source. It won't ever run out and can provide electricity for our world indefinitely. It won't contribute to global climate change and doesn't require hazardous waste disposal like nuclear power.

2. Abundant & Quiet
Solar cells are completely silent. Unlike wind energy or oil extraction, solar energy does not disrupt the local environment or annoy people. Additionally, solar energy is freely available. Solar electric power is available everywhere electricity is used.

3. Cost Effective
After the initial outlay for solar panels and installation, there is very little cost for solar power. It does not cost anything to harness the power of the sun, unlike paying for oil or gas – which continues to increase in price over time. In some countries, financial and tax incentives make solar electricity even more cost effective when compared with conventional electricity.

4. Easy To Set Up And Maintain
Solar power panels and products are relatively easy to install. Unlike conventional electrical power, you don't need wires or cords to employ solar power. Another advantage to solar power is that very little maintenance is required to keep solar cells running. This is because there are no moving parts in a solar cell, which makes them durable and long-lasting.

5. Reliable & Constantly Developing Technology
Solar electric power panels have been proven to be highly reliable. Many PV solar panels (including the LG panels we supply) have long-term warranties, and good quality panels can last for decades. Additionally, solar power technology is improving consistently over time. With more and more people turning to solar power, new developments in the technology are constantly being brought to market.

6. Completely Clean & Eco-Friendly
One of the most important advantages of solar power is that it is completely clean. It produces no carbon footprint or harmful emissions and absolutely no pollution. This makes solar energy far more eco-friendly than non-renewable sources like oil, which releases harmful greenhouse gases, carcinogens and carbon dioxide into the air.

It's clear that with all the wonderful advantages solar power offers, this new form of renewable energy will continue to grow in popularity year by year – especially in a country such as New Zealand which is so well suited to it.
