Busting the Top Four Solar Energy Myths

Busting the Top Four Solar Energy Myths

We all recognise the importance of going green; putting out the recycling and turning off the lights when we’ve left the room. But when it comes to getting multiple solar panels installed on our roofs we’re a little more hesitant.

This is not exactly surprising when you see all the myths circulating about solar energy. Here at Paul O’Brien Solar, we are passionate about solar energy, our confidence in our product exemplified through the ten year workmanship and IWA insurance warranty we give to all our customers. But we do realise that there are some myths about solar energy which need to be busted.

So, without further ado, here are the top four myths about solar energy.

Annual Energy Bills 'To Rocket By 2020'

Annual household energy bills could rise by more than £600 within seven years so power companies can keep the lights on. In an article published by Sky News it would mean that the average bill would exceed £2,000 a year even if wholesale costs of gas and electricity remain stable - an annual rise of £640 per household. This is a massive chunk potentially on everyone's bills. This means one thing: that household bills are set to rise, and to rise for many people very steeply for the foreseeable future.

What better way to combat this than by installation a domestic home solar system to not only earn money form the Government backed Feed in Tariff scheme for the next 20 years, but also by safeguarding yourselves against these energy price rises. By installing a solar system, any increase in the price of electricity will be offset by the Free Electricity you generate through the solar system.
