Solar panel installation Essex

One major and most obvious reason people switch to solar energy is the reduction in their monthly utility bills. But what other benefits are there?

As the provider of the type of high-quality solar panel installation Essex residents expect when switching to solar, we know a thing or two about the importance of solar energy. Climate change is a big worry for us all, and the trend towards households and businesses trying to lower their carbon footprint is continuously picking up momentum. Helping homeowners move away from traditional fossil fuels toward cleaner energy is one of the core reasons we founded Orton & Wenlock, and our aim is always to deliver the best solar panel installation Essex can offer.

But even though the majority of us are more aware than ever before of the importance of lowering our carbon footprint, you may not understand the exact reasons solar panel installation is one of the best ways of doing this. Our experienced team provides the highest quality solar panel installation Essex has to offer, and based on our expertise, we will tell you the 3 most powerful reasons why you should consider switching to solar energy.

Solar Panel Installation Essex

1. Solar panels are better for the environment

Solar panels produce solar energy, which is a clean, renewable source of energy. This makes solar panels and the solar energy they produce a fantastic way of reducing your carbon footprint. As solar panels only need a source of clean water to operate they don’t release any greenhouse gasses that will pollute the environment. A key feature of solar panels is they are self-sufficient, and as the provider of the best solar panel installation Essex can offer we would suggest the installation of green solar panels is a great way for you to contribute to a sustainable future. Without a doubt, solar energy is far better for the environment than energy derived from fossil fuels.

2. Solar panels help you go off-grid

The traditional method of creating electricity relies heavily on fossil fuels such as natural gas and coal. Both of these fossil fuels are limited resources which have been nearly exhausted, leading to the crazy energy price hikes of recent times. Our expert solar panel installation Essex solutions allow you to break away from relying on fossil fuels, meaning you can power your property “off-grid”. Once you are harnessing the power of the sun through your solar panels you will be energy independent, which is not only great for the environment but will also protect you against volatile energy price increases.

3. Solar panels are a free source of energy

Whilst energy companies control the prices of electricity, solar panels utilise the power of the sun, which is a free source of energy for us all. The sun doesn’t have shareholders to answer to, so long as there is direct sunlight then your solar panels will harness and convert to usable energy. It doesn’t even matter if it’s a cloudy day, our solar panel installation solutions include a storage battery that stores any solar energy not used so that you have power when cloudy or at night. Another great benefit to solar panels is not only are they powered by a free source of energy, but if you harness more energy than your property requires you can even pay some back to the National grid!
