Benefits of Solar Energy

Benefits of Solar Energy for Building Owners

Solar Energy is something that you hear about frequently but may wonder how it affects you and your home. The Cotocon Group has compiled some of the Benefits of Solar Energy that can hugely benefit Building Owners.

Reduce Your Energy Bills


Generating your own electricity means that you will be using less Energy from the grid. This will immediately result into Energy savings. You can also make money by selling the unused electricity, which you have generated, back to the grid. Through solar panel grants offered, you can make your green investment even more beneficial. The more energy you produce, the less you will need from the supplier which will increase your energy self-reliance. Solar Energy is usually the first thing on the list when people are trying to achieve net zero buildings or reduce their energy costs.


Low Maintenance

One of the best things about producing Solar Energy is that it is very low maintenance. Solar plants last up to 30 years or even more when properly maintained. During the winter season, you want to remove any ice or snow from the panels that will stop them from absorbing sunlight.


Increase Property Value

Installing Solar Panel systems to your properties can increase the value by up to $10,000 or more! Buyers today are more eco-conscious than ever. They want properties that fulfil all their needs but also give them added benefits in the future.


Energy Production during Peak Hours

Energy demand tends to be higher in the 11:00-16:00 time frame and then early in the evening. Naturally, this is the period when the price of the electricity peaks. Solar energy happens to reach its maximum production capacity during those hours. Electricity produced at that time has higher value than if it was generated at night. With the additional electricity input of solar energy, prices in those time frames could be driven down to a level close to those of night hours.


Great Return on Investment

Solar Panels are great value for money. If you want one good reason to choose solar panels, think about the return that you get on your initial investment. Solar panels significantly reduce your overall energy bills and can eliminate the traditional electricity that you typically use. Not only will you see savings every month, but you will see additional savings in the future on the cost of maintenance and repairs.

As The world and New York City in particular moves towards Reduce Green House Gas Emissions and towards a renewable and Sustainable future, Solar Energy Systems are a great way of achieving those targets. For more information on how they could help, Contact Us.
