Why solar energy is so popular among renewable energy

Renewable energy has become a popular choice for businesses and residents nationwide.. But, among them, solar is the popular choice in renewable energy in comparison to others: wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric. Why? What makes solar energy more popular and preferred than others?

Solar energy is the fastest-growing source of power, exceeding other renewables with a 68% increase in usage over the last decade. This rise in solar power has come from various factors. 


Dependable Source of Energy

Solar energy is a major dependable source of energy. As it generates power using sunlight that is indefinite, solar power can produce more predictable energy output based on BOM and NASA data than wind energy – making it more reliable than other options. Especially for those locations with an abundant amount of sunlight, this is very beneficial. 


Efficiency and Durability

Compared to others, solar power requires less monitoring and maintenance. It is also totally silent compared to the noisy wind turbines that are not allowed to be installed just anywhere. Quicker to install, solar also provides a more hassle-free and time-effective way to install compared to other options. Solar panels are also very strong. With the latest technology, they have been tested for extreme conditions, ensuring they can sustain extreme weather conditions such as heavy rainfall, lighting, ice storms, and high wind.


More Affordable

Solar systems are cheaper and more affordable compared to other options. Solar panels cost an average of $11,000-$15,000 while wind turbines can cost an average of $50,000-$70,000. Moreover, recently, it has become increasingly affordable through various funding and rebates offered by governments and officials to increase the use of solar energy. 


Reliable, Efficient, Durable, and Cost-Effective. Solar is the most preferred choice of renewable energy and is soon to be the choice for all energy needs.
