Solar power advantages

Whether we’re talking about saving the planet, or saving you money, the subject of solar power technology is certain to come up. Both commercial solar power, as well as household solar have a large number of great advantages. These advantages, added with the ongoing energy crisis, means that solar power installation is quickly becoming increasingly common across the country.


Solar panels should not be seen as an immediate, short-term energy solution, but rather as an energy investment that pays off handsomely in the long run.

If you are still unsure whether the PV panel life is for you, let’s discuss some of the major solar power advantages.


Slowing Global Warming with Clean Energy


While this may not be an individual advantage, global warming threatens the survival of our entire planet. Solar power has stamped its authority as one of the most important solutions to the global warming crisis, allowing us to produce renewable and clean energy.


The ongoing effort to increase solar efficiency means that solar technology is constantly evolving. These technological advances have made it possible for rooftop solar and other high output solar solutions to become commercially viable.


Renewable Free Energy


One of the main reasons that solar power installation is a great long-term investment is the fact that it doesn’t require any ongoing and expensive raw materials to generate electricity. Besides the initial installation cost and odd maintenance, solar power will provide you with ongoing free energy with production costs that remain constant for the entire calculated period.


Cut energy costs


Cutting your home or business energy costs is undoubtedly one of the biggest solar power pros out there. Since some, if not all, of your electricity needs will be met by the energy generated by the solar system, your electricity bill will drop.


While Eskom is still working out the kinks of feeding solar generated power back into the utility, they have definitely begun to notice the massive potential that solar power has. This will hopefully lead to much greater energy savings in the not-too-distant future.


Shielded against changing utility rates


If recent events have taught us anything about government, it’s that things can change in a heartbeat. As energy demand skyrockets and non-renewable resources vanish, the cost of electricity will rise. Investing in solar power means that you are shielded from the inevitable electricity tariff hikes of the future.


Reliable Energy


With summer here in full swing, the threat that load shedding will peep its horrible head out again is a reality. Load shedding can force businesses to halt productions and leave households feeling stranded.

Thanks to solar financing, investing in commercial solar systems have become a viable solution for many local businesses. Homes and businesses that use the sun for their advantage can rest easy knowing that their future is bright.


Plan your Installation Today


Soventix is a leading name in solar plant development, having installed a large number of commercial and household solar projects to date. Where most see an open rooftop or an empty field, we see an innovative solar project waiting to take shape.
