Most homeowners understand that solar panels are a long-term property investment, but some are still reluctant to install a system of their own because they aren’t sure if the return is worth the initial expense. For instance, they might worry that solar panels won’t stand up to hail, rain, and strong winds over the years, and will break down before they become a positive investment.

However, this concern quickly vanishes when you consider the physical stability, sustainable advantages, and long-term savings of solar panels. Here’s a deeper look at what makes solar panels a reliable property investment.

Panel Strength

A study by The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) evaluated solar systems installed on homes after the year 2000. Their report revealed that less than one percent of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels installed on homes experienced malfunctions. With only five out of 10,000 panels requiring replacement annually, there’s no doubt that these fixtures are some of the most stable long-term investments available to homeowners.

Environmental Impact

Solar panels are a reliable resource that sustains energy in and out of the house. There is no pollution generated from the monthly use of solar panel systems, which means that having panels is a dependable way to contribute to environmental conservation. And, because the sun provides an unlimited amount of solar energy, you never need to worry about your panels running out of their energy supply.

Constant Savings

It’s no secret that solar panels lead to savings. In fact, the math is undeniable. Though it is a sizable initial investment cost, what the average homeowner saves in monthly energy bills will pay off the system in 10-15 years. And, the lifespan of a solar energy system is typically more than double that. This means that once your system is paid off, you will be saving thousands every year for as long as the panels are still efficient.
