Now that summer and the sun are here, many people are deciding to install solar cells. But is it really expensive to get it? Don’t we have too little sun in Sweden? Will it damage my house? There were three of many questions that are asked when solar cells come up. Below you will find the pros and cons of solar energy.
Acquiring solar cells to their house or perhaps a holiday home has become more and more popular over the years. The sun has always been an important source of energy, keeping us and the plant kingdom alive. But there are many issues that come up when solar cells and solar energy come up. Below you will find the pros and cons of solar energy.
Advantages of solar energy:
Solar panels can actually produce electricity on cloudy days, due to new technology that enables more efficient energy production.
Almost no entertainment is needed for solar cells.
The only thing to keep in mind is if they happen to get dirt or leaves on them, then you have to brush them off. The solar panel’s warranty is usually at 25. However, the system should be examined every four and seven years. Ask your installer when to check the system and how to maintain it.
Solar systems installed on houses contribute to reduced environmental impact. Solar energy does not emit pollution. Installation and production are associated with certain emissions, but they are of much less significance than other alternatives.
You will not be affected by rising electricity prices. Because you generate your own electricity. Most houses have enough space on their roof to install solar cells that meet the energy needs during the summer months.
In addition, you can replace roof tiles or other roof cladding with solar cells, which means that you do not have to buy the cost of, for example, roof tiles.
Solar energy can increase the overall weather at your house. This type of energy makes it more attractive to potential buyers.
Disadvantages of solar energy:
The installation of solar cells is a high one-time cost. But there is the opportunity to get a contribution to it.
The big difference in electricity generation between summer and winter. It is said that during the summer, up to seven times as much energy is produced than during the winter months.
Solar cells are sensitive to shade and it is important to remember that these should not be overshadowed. The absorption capacity of the solar cells will then be limited.
The weather can affect the efficiency of solar cells.
