Super 6 Reasons to Switch
If there’s one thing we can be sure about it’s that we are continually bombarded with energy companies expressing the need for us to ‘switch’. But switch to what exactly? Is there a simpler way to see the wood through the trees when dealing with these companies? Is there another solution to better our energy consumption and in turn reduce our carbon footprint? If this seems too good to be true then read on and see our Super 6 reasons to make the solar switch!
1. Solar Energy Is Available Everywhere
Whether you live in the hustle and bustle of the city or you’ve found your dream home out in the sticks, as long as there is sunshine, solar electricity can be deployed from anywhere in the world. This means that you can power your home from the sun in any location – no more power cuts due to the high demand in low supply areas! Be in charge of your own energy supply.
2. It Doesn’t Run Out
Unlike coal and other fossil fuels the energy created from the sun is fully renewable; the sun is always present meaning that there is an unlimited supply of energy for all. Unless the sun falls from the sky there will be no running out of solar energy!
3. Slows Global Warming
The effects of using carbon-based energy are widely known to speed up global warming, but by switching to solar you reduce your household/business carbon emission rate. Research has shown that solar power can reduce global warming by more than any other energy supply.
4. See A Return On Investment
The initial cost of solar panel installation can seem quite steep, however it is a long-term investment that over time will turn into a clear reduction of monthly bills. You also own the energy that your home produces meaning that you are no longer paying the ‘Big Six’ for your electricity or gas, there are no companies buying energy and selling it to you at mark-up prices.
Solar power is completely clean, meaning there are no harmful emissions or gasses that are produced by the creation of it. In fact you can even reduce your carbon footprint by up to 80%. It doesn’t contribute to the greenhouse effect by emitting dangerous gasses such as carbon dioxide into the environment by the burning of fuels. Solar panels can be installed on roofs, agricultural land and are not confined to home use. Plenty of Eco-friendly energy for everyone!
6. Affordable & Trustworthy
The initial installation of solar panels and renewable energy systems doesn’t have to be eye wateringly expensive; there is financing available to suit your needs whether you need 10 panels or 50 panels! With REST there are also affordable aftercare packages to ensure that your panels are kept clean and functioning to the best of their ability – producing you clean and reliable energy all year round.
