Energy bills should be reduced or eliminated.

We live in Nigeria, which has an average of 6 hours of sunlight per day, which is enough to power our three-child and two-adult household at net zero energy consumption. It is sunny 43 percent of the time, allowing us to produce far more than we consume.

Solar panels will continue to draw energy even when the weather is cloudy. Indirect or diffused sunlight will still assist in powering your home, which typically produces 20 to 30 percent of the power generated on sunny days.

Helps the environment.

Solar power systems harness the sun's clean, pure energy. Installing solar panels on your home reduces greenhouse gas emissions and our reliance on fossil fuels. Traditional electricity is generated using fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. When fossil fuels are burned to generate electricity, harmful gases are released, which are the primary cause of air pollution and global climate change. Fossil fuels are not only bad for the environment, but they are also a limited resource. As a result, the price is constantly fluctuating and can rise dramatically in a short period of time.

Begin saving right away.

The price of electricity used in Nigerian households was nearly 24 Nigerian Naira per kilowatt hour, with annual energy costs in the thousands. As soon as solar panels are installed, these costs can be reduced or eliminated. They also provide long-term savings because capturing the power of the sun is essentially free.

Solar panels also help to extend the life of a roof by shielding it from the elements such as rain, sun, and debris. They save energy because the hot sun is not directly reflected off the roof but is instead absorbed by the panels, keeping the house temperature lower.
