Get out your shades and get ready for summer! The sun is shining and that means potential energy is waiting to be harvested. Residential use of solar panels is a growing trend. Why? Here are some of the top reasons solar powered homes are on the rise.
1 – Environmental Advantages
Generation of energy from the sun has no harmful after effects on the environment in the way that mining and drilling for fossil fuels does. No greenhouse gasses, no habitat destruction, no human cost through accidents and equipment malfunctions. Even though the photovoltaic materials contained within the solar cells are toxic, recycling technologies have been advancing to combat that eventual problem.
