Solar technology is currently improving fast and becomes an increasingly important component of the country's ‘energy mix’ across the world and particularly in Europe. What was expensive, bulky, and inefficient yesterday is becoming cheaper, more accessible, and vastly more efficient each week.
As business owners who install solar panels on their property we enjoy more equitable relationships with local utilities and gain a measure of independence especially in isolated location. Even if solar panels don't produce all of the power needed on a daily basis, we need to buy less conventional power and minimize environmental impact creating electricity without producing global warming pollution. Solar energy produces electricity when it is in demand – during the day (particularly hot days) when air-conditioners drive up electricity demand.
Major benefits of solar power are absolutely no noise made from panels as they convert sunlight into usable electric. Also creation of solar energy requires little maintenance. Once the solar panels have been installed and are working at maximum efficiency there is only a small amount of maintenance required each year to ensure they are in working order.
Furthermore, using of the sun’s energy would stimulate democratic and competitive energy market. Solar doesn’t rely on constantly mining raw materials, and it doesn’t result in the destruction of forests and eco-systems that occurs with many fossil fuel operations.
