Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Is Solar Energy Reliable Enough for My Home or Business?

Blog
How reliable is solar energy? It's an important question for people considering the switch to solar because we live in a fast-paced, energy-dependent world. When it comes to your home or business, there is no time for power outages or lack of available power. Although it's a broad one, there are two main ways to look at this question – "resource reliability" and "production reliability". Resource reliability is about the availability of the energy source (sunshine) and its ability to regularly reach your panels. Production reliability is more about the ability to consistently turn that sunshine into usable electricity. This production mainly depends on the dependability of the solar system hardware (panels, inverters, wiring), as well as the quality of the solar energy installation. Of course, there must be a…
