Debunking the Most Common Myths About Solar Panels
Solar energy uses the Earth’s natural resources to create a sustainable and eco-friendly solution to powering your home, which is why it’s no surprise that it can seem too good to be true!
There is understandably a lot of speculation around solar energy and its benefits. In this blog, we will debunk the most common myths about solar panels to clear up some confusion and help you to decide if solar energy is the right choice for you.
Myth: Solar panels only work when the sun is shining
Many homeowners are dubious about the benefits of solar panels due to the lack of sunshine we experience here in the UK.
The good news is that while stronger sunlight will generate stronger electricity, solar panels don’t actually need direct sunlight to work and can work well even on gloomy, cloudy days.
Myth: Solar panels require a significant amount of upkeep
This is another common misconception about solar panels that couldn’t be further from the truth. While some owners like to spray solar panels once in a while to remove dirt, solar panels are installed at an angle so will be automatically cleaned when it rains.
Myth: Installing solar panels may cause damage to my roof
By choosing a high-quality solar panel installation company, you will not experience any damage to your roof due to a solar panel installation.
Solar panels are positioned on mounting brackets so that they are secure and stable throughout the installation process.
Myth: Solar panels can’t withstand extreme weather conditions
From deserts and mountains to coasts and fields, solar panels are installed across the world.
Solar panels are designed to withstand all weather conditions including rain, snow and wind so the miserable weather we often experience in the UK won’t be a problem!
