There are many reasons people find to avoid putting solar panels on their properties. The purpose of this article is to educate an ordinary citizen about solar panels, and inspire them to install panels at home.
Many still believe they must wait until solar technology becomes more capable than it is now, but the truth is that we’re still using the same basic technology in the photovoltaic (PV) industry that was used back in the sixties. Solar panels are not like cellular phones or computers, they have proven to have a steady technological profile.
It’s true, however, that solar technology hasn’t been stagnant – many cutting edge tools for PV panel characterization have driven the prices of solar cell production down. Therefore, now is the right time to install solar panels.
Another reason why people procrastinate is because they think that it takes a lot of effort to properly maintain solar panels. Truth is, solar panels will only require occasional hosing down, and many solar panels owners don’t do anything at all and rely on the rain to wash them. This will only decrease their efficiency by five percent!
To summarize, you don’t have to wait for the photovoltaic industry to develop further, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. Now is the perfect time to install solar panels, and they will serve you for years without you having to put in too much effort to maintain them.
