The renewable energy source brings independence to individual users. Solar panels are more valuable to the market when electricity rates continue to rise. Buyers save themselves from high rates by investing in a solar system. The distributed energy generation systems allow buyers to have energy independence since they are dependent on their own electricity source. More specifically, being solar energy independent means knowing exactly where your power is coming from. Having a battery backup system allows buyers to be protected from blackouts because PV panels provide energy stability. Also, the distributed energy generation systems allow buyers to have complete control of their electricity. Purchasers do not worry about any increasing utility rates. In other words, the independent energy market is less volatile than the dependent energy market. Finally, solar is a form of renewable energy, meaning that you can take advantage of the sun’s unlimited resource.
