Advantages of producing solar energy in your home

Elsol is a great source of energy that we have in abundance in our country. We can capture and store it using collectors and solar panels, also called solar panels or solar panels. Photovoltaic solar panels serve to produce electricity, while thermal solar panels serve to heat Sanitary Hot Water (ACS).

Although not at the rate it should, in recent years society's awareness of the environment has increased and, today, there are many more entities developing in the renewable energy sector (those obtained from inexhaustible sources such as the sun, wind and electricity). vegetation). Likewise, the number of people who have decided to install devices for self-consumption of electricity in their home has grown.

Without a doubt, installing solar panels intended to produce sustainable energy for the home has many advantages. In the first place, it should be mentioned that, despite the investment necessary for the purchase and assembly of these panels, in the long run, it is possible to lower electricity bills. This is due, among other things, to the fact that the electricity market in Spain is one of the most expensive in Europe. In this sense, there are studies carried out on the market that ensure that a solar panel installation can allow savings of more than 700 euros per year in the electricity bill of an average home in our country.

Second, solar energy is respectful with the environment since it does not emit harmful gases and also translates into a reduction in CO2 emissions. For this reason, solar energy is an important resource when fighting against climate change.

On the other hand, as we have already mentioned, we are talking about a type of renewable energy. That is to say, it comes from an inexhaustible and abundant natural source in Spain. Therefore, if we compare it with other types of non-renewable, energies that come from finite sources, such as fossil energy or nuclear energy, it is a perfect alternative that allows us a greater degree of independence.

Another advantage that you present is related to the simple installation of the panels. Today, companies in the renewable sector are highly specialized and can easily mount the system. The only necessary requirement will be to have a quiet place where the sunlight can reach.

No less important is the fact that the amount of jobs that can be generated locally promoting this sector is quite considerable and this will affect the good health of the economy of our society.

Finally, we must talk about subsidies. More and more governments are aware of the need to start acting against climate change. Therefore, many Autonomous Communities have grants to promote photovoltaic solar energy installations for individuals, companies, communities of owners and non-profit organizations.

Note: “Last April 2019 the Spanish Government approved a Royal Decree in order to promote electricity self-consumption (with renewable energy) in Spain, allowing a considerable reduction in the electricity bill, being able to save up to a third of the bill. The installation of a more simplified mechanism will be allowed, which allows electricity marketers to compensate people who practice such self-consumption, deducting from the consumers' bill the electricity that they themselves are contributing to the electricity grid and are not consuming in the company or home.
