5 Myths About Solar Vitality in India
The sun is an incredible, alternative and renewable energy source that fuels life on earth with clean and sustainable energy. The sun’s energy is converted into solar energy by solar photovoltaic modules. This source is rapidly gaining importance as more people are finding out the truth about solar energy and having rooftop solar systems installed on their homes and workplaces. The system is very cost effective and can save up to 80% on your electricity bills each month.
However, there are many misconceptions about solar energy and the belief that it is expensive, complicated, unreliable, etc. Many are debunking the big, persistent myths about solar energy.
Myth #1: Solar panels only work when the sun is shining.
The most common myth is that solar panels don’t work in unusual weather conditions and need bright sunny days for solar to be useful. That’s not true, in fact some places with extremely cold and cloudy conditions, like Germany, are one of the world’s leading suppliers of solar energy systems and produce more solar power than the United States.
This is because solar panels need sunlight, but not its heat, to absorb energy and generate electricity. Solar systems are efficient enough to work in cold or monsoon conditions. As long as some sunlight reaches the earth, solar technology can be used extensively, rain or snow. Even if you live in the coldest parts of the country and use a sustainable source and want to save a healthy amount of money every month, go to solar without being shadowed by any myth.
Myth #2: It’s expensive.
No, that’s not true, in fact the prices for solar panels have dropped significantly in recent years. More and more homeowners and businesses are opting for solar energy, and as demand increases, so does the competition among solar energy companies, ultimately resulting in affordable prices for customers. Also, the central and state governments now have several leasing options that allow homeowners to switch to solar power each month with no upfront cost and savings on their utility bills. Needless to say, many buyback options result in financial savings in the long run. This will save you a lot in the long run.
Myth #3: Solar panels are not energy efficient enough.
There is a perception that solar panels are not efficient enough to power large domestic utilities or heavy industrial equipment. Again, we can break this myth by showing you that some of the big trading houses in India depend on solar energy to power their entire manufacturing needs. The experts on solar power systems have quoted that the efficiency of the solar cell is good enough, even in normal sunlight, to keep any heavy machinery working at peak efficiency. Additionally, the US military is one of the largest users of solar energy and relies on reliable energy technology to power its bases at home and abroad.
Myth #4: The solar panel system is durable.
Because there are no moving parts to wear out, solar panels are very reliable. Most panels will produce electricity for many years and at MSYUN we offer a 25 year warranty. In fact, in many Western countries, solar systems that were installed in the late 1970s are still producing electricity today. So now you can imagine how reliable solar energy could be.
Myth #5: Installation is complicated.
The installation is not the case.
