Why Solar Power Is Your Best Choice for Renewable EnergySunrise SolarMon, 11/15/2021 – 8:00am
When it comes to green energy, there are actually several options available. While wind and geothermal power certainly have their merits, you can’t go wrong with solar. Here is a closer look at why solar power is the best option for clean, renewable energy for your home or business.
Endlessly Renewable and Versatile
Sunlight is an endlessly renewable natural resource that is available every day. Even on cloudy days, ultraviolet rays still make their way to the Earth’s surface, allowing your solar panels to produce energy. Solar energy can be accessed anywhere on the planet, including areas where renewable options like wind or tidal energy simply aren’t an option due to geography or weather. Depending on your setup, you can even capture enough energy during the day to power your home at night with a solar battery.
Solar panels require virtually no maintenance. There are no moving parts experiencing friction or wearing out. Other than periodically cleaning off the panels, no extra care is required. On the other hand, wind turbines require lubrication and maintenance to keep their constantly-moving parts from wearing down. With solar panels, you can take a “set it and forget it” approach to renewable energy.
