Financial reasons for photovoltaic power
Photovoltaic power requires only an initial purchase and pays for itself rather quickly. It doesn't require much in the way of maintenance and possesses no moving parts that need lubricated or serviced. Photovoltaic power takes advantage of a naturally occurring, regularly available and free resource: The sun.
These simple systems can be more than capable of running every day power-hungry devices such as power tools, computers, televisions and water heaters that otherwise cost you a small monthly fortune. Furthermore, photovoltaic power is not wasteful. Since the electricity is stored in battery banks, you can use it as needed. Should you ever wish to sell your home, you will enjoy a nice boost in value because of your photovoltaic panels. You might also find that your home sells more quickly.
One home using photovoltaic power is one less home that gets its electricity from pollution-belching coal and oil plants. It also offers one more way to reduce dependency on petroleum products and decreases the need for destructive mining practices. Photovoltaic power presents a viable alternative to building more dangerous nuclear plants to meet the growing energy demand. Photovoltaic panels come with none of the disposal, transport and manufacturing concerns that plague nukes. Photovoltaic power is also more aesthetically appealing than the kilometers of wires and wooden poles that currently disrupt and clutter the landscape.
Photovoltaic power & self-reliance
Photovoltaic power systems allow people to reside in remote areas and still live modern, civilized lifestyles. This power source provides reliable and uninterruptable energy in the event of a power outage or emergency that can be used to supply heat or pump water. By equipping your home with a photovoltaic system, you release yourself from the burden of energy bills. Self-reliant energy takes price gouging power from the hands of electric company executives and gives you full control.
