As the cost of renewable energy continues to fall, more and more households are switching to clean, renewable electricity sources. Among the most affordable and abundant of these is residential solar and commercial solar on existing roof space.
Solar power is a 100% clean, renewable energy source. It reduces reliance on oil, coal and natural gas for electricity production. These fossil fuels produce harmful emissions that affect the quality of air, water and soil, and are responsible for global warming. It’s estimated that between 2000 and 2065, the Earth will lose more species of plants and animals to extinction than in the previous 65 million years combined. That’s a staggering statistic and one driven significantly by the effects of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels.
In contrast, solar energy produces no pollution. The sun’s abundant power offers an unlimited source of energy that does not strip the landscape or harm the ozone layer. Residential solar energy systems represent an investment in the future of the planet, conserving non-renewable energy sources and protecting the environment.
Our grid needs to be modernized to meet the increasing demands of a plugged-in society. Adding a home battery unit powered by residential solar panels can store enough electricity to power homes through peak usage hours, thereby giving households the freedom to control their family’s electricity.
Today’s antiquated grid means that even communities not directly threatened by wildfires will experience power outages.
With a residential solar system, your home is powered by rooftop solar panels during the day and by energy stored in the battery at night. By installing solar panels, you gain energy independence.
Solar panels and home batteries are becoming more affordable, accessible, resilient and efficient. They provide peace of mind and energy security for households when the power goes out or the next storm strikes. Unlimited Solar’s home battery system replenishes with energy generated from the sun and removes the inconvenience, uncertainty and expense of refuelling a gas or diesel-powered generator. The clean and silent battery is a preferred alternative for many families to a traditional backup generator.
If you’re facing rising home energy expenses, home solar panels can offset your costs.
Savings can even accrue on cloudy days, since the sun emits energy through clear and cloudy skies. Solar offers year-round efficiency and savings, even in colder, cloudy climates. Depending on their size, efficiency and orientation relative to the sun, some solar panels actually generate more electricity than your home consumes. This could reduce your monthly electric bill to zero. Most utility bills are rising every year. With solar panels on your roof, customers pay predictable rates for the next 25 years.
The cost of solar has dropped dramatically in recent years, falling more than 70% in just the last decade. You’ll save money on maintenance too, since there are no moving parts to break down. In addition, the cost of home solar batteries have dropped substantially as well. The benchmark levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for lithium-ion batteries has fallen 35% to $187 per megawatt-hour since the first half of 2018, according to research company BloombergNEF (BNEF).
