Solar energy myths debunked

Distributing solar panels can be a lucrative business, but there are still many misconceptions and myths out there that can deter potential customers from investing in solar energy. With our vast experience in the solar industry, we will debunk some of the most common myths about solar energy to help you understand the truth behind them.

Myths vs. truths

  • Myth 1: Solar panels don’t work in cold environments. Truth: Solar panels can still generate electricity even in cold weather. In fact, solar panels can work more efficiently in colder temperatures. So even if you live in a region with long winters or frequent cloud coverage, you can still benefit from solar energy.

  • Myth 2: Solar panels are too expensive. Truth: While the upfront cost of solar panels may seem high, the long-term savings in energy costs can outweigh the initial investment. Additionally, many governments offer incentives and tax credits for solar panel installations, making them more affordable for homeowners and businesses alike.
  • Myth 3: Solar panels require a lot of maintenance. Truth: Solar panels require very little maintenance, and some manufacturers offer warranties of up to 25 years. With proper installation and occasional cleaning, solar panels can continue to generate electricity for decades to come.
  • Myth 4: Solar panels can damage your roof. Truth: Properly installed solar panels can actually protect your roof from damage and extend its lifespan. By providing an additional layer of insulation, solar panels can help regulate the temperature of your roof, reducing wear and tear caused by extreme weather conditions.
  • Myth 5: Solar panels are not efficient enough. Truth: Advances in solar technology have increased the efficiency of solar panels to levels that make them a viable source of energy for many households and businesses. With the right size and placement, solar panels can generate enough electricity to power your entire home or business.
  • Myth 6: Solar energy is unreliable. Truth: With proper installation and maintenance, solar energy can be a reliable source of electricity. While there may be occasional downtime due to weather conditions, solar panels can still generate electricity during the day and be coupled with battery storage for nighttime use.
  • Myth 7: Solar panels can cause cancer. Truth: There is no evidence that solar panels cause cancer or any other health problems. In fact, solar energy is one of the safest and cleanest sources of energy available today.
  • Myth 8: Solar panels are not aesthetically pleasing. Truth: There are many options for solar panel installation, including ones that are designed to blend in with the roof or landscape. Some manufacturers offer solar panels in different colors, shapes, and sizes, allowing you to choose an option that complements your home or business’s aesthetic.

  • Myth 9: Solar panels can only be installed on south-facing roofs. Truth: Solar panels can be installed on roofs facing in any direction or even on the ground. With the right placement and angle, solar panels can generate sufficient electricity regardless of their orientation.
  • Myth 10: Solar panels only work in sunny climates. Truth: Solar panels can generate electricity even on cloudy days and in areas with colder climates. While sunny days do produce more energy, solar panels are still capable of producing electricity in less sunny regions.
