Three good reasons for using solar energy.
A modern solar power unit will supply clean energy for several decades – entirely without emissions or environmental risks. On the contrary, through the utilization of solar energy, you actively help to reduce the emission of the greenhouse gas CO2 , and thus make an important contribution to climate protection. Even the technology used to make the solar units complies with the very highest environmental standards and the materials are readily recyclable.
Not only is solar energy available in unlimited quantities, it is also – in contrast to coal, oil and gas – completely free, like the air we breathe. In addition, we do not have to reckon with any supply shortages from the sun. A comparable guarantee exists nowhere else.
Investments in solar energy generally pay for themselves within a few years. Apart from that, there are numerous subsidies and grants available that make solar power well worthwhile for you. Nor should it be forgotten that solar units have attained a high level of technical maturity, have a long service life and help to increase the value of a house.
Fossil raw materials are precious and in short supply. Solar power conserves fossil energy sources and saves valuable crude oil and coal for subsequent generations. Every solar power unit lets us feel, first hand, how valuable energy is and how carefully we should use it. Anyone who obtains electricity or heat from the roof of his or her house acquires a new personal awareness for power consumption, treats energy much more carefully and also sets a signal in the immediate neighbourhood.
