As our non-renewable resources are known to decline in the coming years, we must consider the shift to renewable sources such as solar, wind, and hydropower. The most popular and easily accessible is solar energy because it doesn't require an elaborate setup and it can easily be used in homes. Solar energy has several advantages that don't only benefit home owners but the society and environment as well. Here are some benefits that will make you install solar panels in your roof in no time!

1. Excellent source of renewable energy

Solar power is a renewable source of energy that can produce electricity as long as the sun exists. As the sun is available everywhere on Earth, there's a pretty good chance that the supply will last. The mighty sun is a consistent and constant source of power.

2. Saves the environment

3. Can be easily installed
