Myth #1: Solar only works when it's sunny
One of the most common misconceptions around solar panels is that they only work in direct sunlight. In fact, solar panels are designed to capture the available sunlight, so they will still produce energy when it is cloudy or raining. As for night time, solar panels can be connected to a battery storage system that allows you to use the stored energy from the day.
Myth #2: Solar is hard to maintain
The truth is solar panels are designed to require very little maintenance. With a quality installation, you will only need minimal upkeep; they need to be periodically wiped of dust and debris, but that's it! When there is an issue, most solar panel manufacturers offer warranties that cover any necessary repairs or replacements. With solar, you get the convenience of clean energy without hassle.
Myth #3: Solar is too expensive
Solar panels aren't cheap, however, with the advancements in solar technology their price has decreased dramatically over the past decade. In addition, solar energy offers significant savings over time by reducing electricity bills. The amount of money saved depends on the size of your PV system, the amount of sunlight in your area and the amount of energy you use. With a properly sized system, you could save up to 50% on your electricity bill.
