If you are up to converting your home to be solar-powered, you need to know which are the pluses and minuses of doing it.
One of the greatest plus of the solar energy is that they are generating power from the sun, which means you don’t pay electricity bills, your energy is eco-friendly and your energy source will never end.
Another good reason for converting to energy is the fact that this way you can use energy without any restrictions. It is totally free from the so called “green house” effects or bad emissions, which lead to air pollution.
The good news for solar power systems is that they are easy to maintain and some of them are made to last a lifetime.
On the other hand, solar systems are too expensive and most of them are reaching prices up to $20,000. The basic minus in solar power systems is that they are dependent on the sun. When it’s dark and in days without sun, as well as in the winter and cold seasons, it won’t work, because there is no sun to generate power.
Among the minuses is the fact, that once you build the construction for the solar system on your roof, you can’t remove it. If you are moving out, you can’t take it. So basically this is the choice of the people, who are planning to settle down in a house for the rest of their lives.
