1. A Renewable Energy Source
The sun has been around longer than the Earth has, and did you know that with all the energy the sun produces within 1 hour, it is enough to power the Earth for centuries.

2. Reduces Your Electricity Bills
This is why you’re here right? With the amount of power your solar panels produce, your energy bills will drop. By how much you may ask? Well, it depends on a lot of factors, such as the way your roof is facing the sun, and how much energy your household uses.
But by any measure, you save up to 40% on your annual expenditure on energy. With those savings, you can invest in other ventures that you’re interested in – or just save that money for a rainy day. It’s up to you.
