What do you know about solar energy?

Strategically, solar panels are installed when location aligns with sunlight. Naturally, any home with southern exposure will attract sunlight and sun kiss your property.
Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels installed on roof-tops or mounted on the ground convert the sun's rays into electricity. Your home or business will use the electricity produced by your solar PV system, and when more energy is generated than you are using, it can be sold through net billing.
No greenhouse gas emissions are released into the atmosphere when you use solar panels to create electricity. Because the sun provides more energy than we'll ever need, electricity from solar power is a very important energy source in the move to clean energy production. This positively reduces carbon footprint progression within your community. Additionally, this benefits the process of diminishing the use of unpredictable energy system costs.
The Canadian government provides financial benefits to those who offer their source of clean energy, solar panels have the ability to power an entire house and more.
Selling a home with solar panels?
Additional income is given to homeowners who have signed contract agreements for supplying clean energy. This factors into homes with installed solar energy systems and happens to fall under the realm of unique properties.
Currently, the general payback period for an average-sized residential solar system in Ontario is 8-10 years, once all costs (including unexpected potential maintenance) are factored in. If you intend to sell your home after the payback period, you can make an even greater ROI (Return on investment).
Buying a home with solar panels?
Purchasing a home with an installed solar energy system might be the best fit for you. Consider the benefits it presents, financially and economically. It is important to sense the feeling of appreciation for solar energy efficiency.
If you were to factor this 8-10 year time period as a buyer, not having to pay off installed solar panels, you may find yourself in a position to potentially reinvest your energy based income back into your mortgage. These solar panels have a lifespan of 30+ years.]
