Reasons To Install Solar Panels: A Guide from Now EV

Almost everyone has heard of solar panels. However, few people have had them fitted due to the associated costs and the alleged lengthy installation. 

Yet, there is no way around it: solar panels are the future. So, if you want to help the planet, want to up the value of your home, or simply like the look of them is it worth having solar panels fitted? We think so, and here, our team at Now EV will walk you through why!

Lower Electricity Bills

When most people contact our Milton Keynes solar panel specialists about an installation, it is because they want to have lower electricity bills. 

Indeed, having solar panels fitted can and will lower how much you spend on electricity per year. If you are in the UK, you can save up to and over £250 per year on your bills. Long-term, that’s a lot of money! You will need to take into account the type of solar panel you have installed, how big your home is and how much electricity you use, so the amount you save may differ. To help you save the most on your electricity bill with solar panels, talk to our team at Now EV about the different types of panels we can fit for you.

Energy is Renewable

If you want to have a greener home, then you simply have to get solar panels fitted. 

The electricity generated by the solar panels starts at home and ends at home, meaning there is no long-distance power required to generate the electricity. This means lower energy costs, which equates to greener energy. 

Plan B for Power Outages

If you live in an area where there are regular power outages, having solar panels fitted is a great idea!

When you fit solar panels that have a battery, you are ensuring that if an outage hits your home due to a natural disaster or simply an issue with the grid, you won’t have to break out the candles to find your way around your home,

You Can Sell Extra Electricity

All of the solar panels that we install can reverse the power that the panels create. This means you can give excess energy back to the grid, allowing you to sell it to electric companies. 

However, for this to work, you will need to make sure that your inverter is in good condition. A higher-quality inverter will also determine whether or not you are able to sell the electricity to the companies, so if this is something that you are interested in, our team can help you choose the right solar panel to use.

It should also be noted that while many electric companies will give you reimbursements for excess electricity, it is rarely in cash form. The majority will offer you credit, but that’s better than nothing! 

Increases Your Property Value

When you install solar panels, it can increase the value of your home by up to 5%. So, that’s a lot of money to think about!

If your home is located in an area where electricity is costly, having solar panels will also make your home more desirable, should you ever sell it. We know it can be pricey to have solar panels installed but, long term, studies have found that there is no property that has had its value drop due to having solar panels fitted. So, if you plan to sell your home in the future, solar panels are something to consider.
