Although for most homeowners, the most significant incentive of solar panels is saving on bills, there is also the advantage of knowing you are lowering your carbon footprint and helping the earth. The average home solar panel system saves around 1.3 to 1.6 tonnes of carbon annually.
When installing solar panels, you have two choices. You can opt for solar panels only, or a system with batteries. The advantage of the batteries is they hold the power produced by the panels to be used later. With solar panels only, you use the energy as it is produced, but much of this is wasted if you are not at home during the day.
A battery storage system is optimal for a family at work or school during the day who mainly uses energy during the evenings. The batteries store the energy produced during the day, ready for use at night. With this type of system, depending on the size of the panels, it is possible to produce enough electricity to power the home.
