Is it worth it to go solar? Without a doubt, if you’re considering converting your home to solar energy this question has certainly crossed your mind. Converting your home or business to solar power is an investment with a great deal of potential return. There are many ways solar energy puts money back in your pocket. For example, you can plan on reduced utility bills and increased property values. And don’t forget the overall positive impact on the earth.
Another big question you might be wondering is, just how long will these panels last? Are you going to enjoy them long enough to justify converting your home to solar power? Or will you find yourself spending money to keep them functioning a few years from now?
Solar Panel Lifespan
Far from being a short-term solution, solar panels are one of the longest-living investments you can make to your home. In fact, when we design and install a solar energy system for your home, you can look forward to a product that will more than outlast your expectations.
You can expect most panels to perform at their optimal level for 25 to 30 years. In fact, many solar panels come with a 25-year warranty. Notice we said this is how long they’ll perform at their optimal level. The great thing is, after hitting this benchmark, your solar panels should continue to work, simply with a reduced output from their initial installation. With a lifespan like that, you will be seeing a return on investment that can put money in your pocket long enough to send kids to college or start a plush retirement fund.
