In this day and age, pretty much everyone knows that we need to start focusing on renewable sources of energy and solar power is one of the most talked about. Of course, it’s no surprise since using the power of the sun has been around in some form since the dawn of time and there are many advantages to using solar power both for homes and businesses.

One of the biggest advantages is that solar power is renewable. While it might be stronger in some areas and there could be rainy days when no sun is available, no matter how much solar power we use, we will never deplete the resource. This is in sharp contrast to the fossil fuels we use now which are dwindling in supply.

Also, unlike fossil fuels, solar power does not harm the environment. There are no byproducts of solar power that leach into the air and create pollution or contribute to greenhouse gasses. In addition, acquiring the power is not intrusive to the environment like some other forms of energy. About the most intrusive part would be the solar panels which are well suited in most areas to fit snugly on the roof.

When using solar power for your home, you can be a self contained unit. While it might not be practical in some areas to rely solely on the sun for power, other, less developed, areas might benefit immensely by being able to power homes and schools with the sun without having to install power plants and run electrical cables. In areas where there is not enough sunlight for household needs, systems can be setup so that you can hook into the electrical grid during those times when more energy is needed.

While installing a solar power system for your home or business can be expensive at first, you will eventually see a savings because as time goes on you will not be paying that monthly power bill. After the initial costs, gathering power from the sun is free so once you have your collection and storage systems set up, you will be reaping the benefits not only in the monthly savings but also in the benefits to our planet.
