You can see solar panels on homes as you drive through neighborhoods, you see them in front of businesses, even little gadgets use solar to power them!

Like most things, solar works better in certain places and for certain things. If you have been considering solar, or want to know if it is right for you, keep reading! At Advanced Power, we can provide your farm, home, or other areas with the solar water pumps you need. Learn more about whether solar is right for you and how you can benefit from solar powered water pumps.

Determining if Solar is Right For You

There are a few factors to consider when trying to figure out if including solar panels is the right move for you to make on your home or farmland. These factors include:


If you own farmland, you likely own it in an area that is provided with lots of sunlight and other resources needed to help your crops grow and keep your livestock healthy and happy. But if you own a home, there are areas that may not be a good choice for solar. When you choose solar power, you have to have direct access to the sun. If you live in a sunny area but are surrounded by towering trees, it may be hard for solar panels to work as efficiently as possible. When you are considering solar, you want to think about where you live and how much sun you receive. Areas like Seattle may not be the best place to have solar panels installed since this city experiences so much overcast.

Your farmland may be a good candidate for solar, since you are likely to have an open space that receives a lot of sun. This is one of the most important things to consider when you are thinking about solar. While this type of power could help you save a ton of money on your energy bill, it is not always going to be a great investment. But when you are living in a sunny place, this could be the best investment you make.


Cost of Energy

One way to justify solar investment is to take a look at your energy bills. If you spend hundreds on energy each month, solar may help you out. The initial cost of getting solar could be outweighed by the savings, especially if your home or farmland consumes a lot of energy. In the summer, your need for energy will increase, examples of this may be watering your crops, using fans, or turning on the air conditioning. But because the summer is generally more sunny and bright, your solar will be generating more.

Roof Style

If you are a homeowner looking into solar, you will want to think about your roof. While you do not have to install your domestic solar panels on your roof, it is often the best place for them. But you need to make sure your roof is right for solar panels. If your roof is old and will have to be replaced soon, installing solar panels may not be the best idea. You also want the style of your roof to be right for solar panels to be installed. The best roof will be facing south, made of composite shingles or concrete tiles, and not have too steep of a slope. If your roof is steep, a flat roof, or has trees casting shadows over it a majority of the day, solar may not be the best option.
