Solar PanelsSunlight is free, so consider taking advantage of it by installing solar panels on your roof.

Solar panels produce clean energy and help reduce your utility bills as you don’t need to depend on the grid for electricity. You can also sell any excess power generated by the solar panels back to the grid.

Using solar panels reduces your carbon footprint as it doesn’t release harmful gases. A standard solar PV system could save about 1.2 to 1.7 tonnes of carbon every year. PV cells come in various sizes and shapes. Most PV systems are composed of panels that can be mounted on an existing roof. You can also go for solar tiles.
