According to the Climate Clock, Earth has around six years before the damage done to it is irreversible. It’s alarming, though, why countries aren’t doing anything about the situation might suggest otherwise.
But you don’t have to wait for authorities to take action; instead, you can and must play your part in fighting climate change.
If you’re not sure where to begin, installing a solar panel on your property would be a good start. In addition to being sustainable and renewable, solar energy can help you save big on your monthly bills.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of compelling reasons that propose why you should switch to a solar setup for home.
Let’s have a look at them.
This is undoubtedly one of the biggest and most common reasons why people switch to solar energy: it’s good for the environment.
For those who don’t know how solar panels work, they
transform sunlight into energy to power up appliances on a property.
We’ve discussed this in detail in our blog: Thinking of Installing Solar Panels? Read This Before You Do
While doing so, solar panels do not emit greenhouse gases, which is not the case with traditional energy generated by natural resources, such as gas or coal.
This way, solar energy can help reduce your carbon footprint.
The cost of a solar system varies, depending on the number
of panels and other factors. Whatever it may be, it’s natural that you’d want a
high ROI when selling your property.
That’s very much possible.
People perceive solar panels as an upgrade to a property,
similar to a kitchen or bathroom remodeling. While selling it, you can demand a
high price based on the fact that your home has a solar system.
The buyers would gladly agree, especially if they’re
conscious of how much carbon footprint they leave behind.
So, while a solar system may seem costly at first, remember the benefits you’ll receive in the long and short term.
Expanding on the previous point, a solar system can help cut
down your bills.
Traditional electricity is expensive.
Almost a year ago, it was reported that, on average, a
household in Ibiza spends EUR 100 monthly on electricity bills. That’s a lot,
considering you have other expenditures.
Luckily, you have solar energy, which gives you an easy way
to save some bucks. Since you won’t be using traditional energy to power up
most of your appliances at home, expect to see those digits drop in your energy
Although you can completely go off-grid, we won’t recommend
it for the time being. You should first use solar energy to charge your home's
small appliances, like lights and fans.
Once you understand how the whole thing works, you can switch your entire property to solar energy.
Earth has enough natural resources to fulfill everyone’s
needs, but not greed. Mahatma Gandhi said this decades ago, but it perfectly
fits modern times.
A few months earlier, it was reported that Kylie Jenner, the
American media personality, used her private jet on a 17-minute flight to
travel from Van Nuys to Camarillo.
That resulted in the emission of tons of carbon dioxide.
A car would’ve taken Kylie around 40 minutes, with only a
fraction of carbon dioxide emissions produced.
This came at the heels of a report that suggested the
world’s natural resources may run out by 2040.
Luckily, sunlight does not belong on the list, meaning those who switch to solar energy would have nothing to worry about.

Or the solar panels send the energy back into the grid. And
when that happens, you might receive compensation. Emphasis on the might
because it depends on the utility company.
Therefore, it’s best to consult them first and know more about how the whole process works.
To sum it up, solar energy:
