A rooftop solar panel refers to solar panels that are installed on the roof of buildings. You probably must-have seen them in many buildings and wondered why people did bother installing the solar panels on the rooftop rather than choosing another location.
There are tremendous benefits of installing rooftop solar panels. Here are few reasons why rooftop solar panel installation is preferable.
Benefits of installing rooftop solar panels
1. Direct sun
Solar panels generate electricity by the direct action of sunlight on the photovoltaic cells contained in each solar panel.
When solar panels are installed on your roof, direct sunlight strikes the panels and generates electricity.
Another advantage is that there is rarely any obstruction to the action of the sun on your solar panels when they are installed on rooftops.
2. Space and convenience
The installation of solar panels on the rooftop created more space in the compound. Rooftop solar panels make room for convincing and allow easy navigation to different areas in the compounds.
3. Utilization of vacant roof
The installation of solar panels on the roof helps you utilize your vacant roof.
4. Low maintenance
Solar panels are easy to maintain and the installation of solar panels on the roof even makes it easier to maintain as raindrops tend to wash off first which could block or hinder the efficacy of your solar panels. Quick installation
Solar panels are quick to install and are of good benefits in the long run.
5. No noise, zero emissions
Rooftop solar panels make no noise whatsoever when generating electricity. Carbon dioxide is one of the greenhouse gases that can be effectively tackled by the use of solar panels.
Other hazardous emissions released from the combustion of fossil fuel are drastically reduced by the installation of solar panels.
Giving us a stable and healthy environment.
7. Climatic changes
Rooftop solar panels and solar panels, in general, produce no greenhouse gases. If the use of solar panels is implemented widely, they can help reduce the effect of climatic change and give us all an eco-friendly environment which would greatly impact our health.
