Solar power has become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional "grid" power. Homeowners and business owners alike are investing in solar power systems to capitalize on its cost-savings and Eco-friendly benefits.
As of 2016, solar power represents roughly 1% of the world's electricity. However, advancements in the technology continue to grow, making solar power a more attractive source of energy.
In fact, experts say that the world's production of solar energy is growing at roughly 33% per year.
There are countless benefits associated with solar power, one of which is the simple fact that it's cheaper than grid power.
Assuming the homeowner buys his or her solar power system outright (as opposed to renting or leasing it), he or she can essentially generate free electricity. Furthermore, statistics show that solar panels can cover roughly 84% of a typical American home's energy needs.
This means the homeowner must only pay for 16% of his or her power. Additionally, solar panels are completely green, neither producing nor releasing any greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
