We’ve been saying for a long time that solar power is the future, and recently there have been some big developments that show the wind is blowing that way.
But despite all the obvious signs it’s happening, there are still plenty of people who insist that renewable energy is wishful thinking and that oil and coal with be around forever.
Obviously, even the most cursory of research will show this to be nonsense, as both the oil and coal industries are moribund while renewables are going through the roof.
For those of you who are on the fence, here are three reasons that demonstrate why commercial solar power is the future.
Solar technology is reshaping our lives
Technology changes a society like nothing else and its growth is exponential. This means that the improvements in technology start slowly, but gain momentum, coming faster and faster with each generation.
Think how long it took from the invention of the telephone to the first iPhone, and then from the first iPhone to the latest model; the same applies to solar technology. Improvements and breakthroughs are coming almost on a weekly basis now.
When people complain about solar panels, they’re thinking of panels from 10, maybe even 20 years ago. They have no idea how much the technology has improved since then.
Solar batteries are a great example of this modern development.
The first Tesla Powerwall was only introduced 5 years ago. Now the latest model has over twice the capacity with three times the power! And that’s in five years!
The real big breakthroughs will come in the next 10 years, with the cost of technology dropping for consumers, while at the same time becoming more efficient.
We are switching to a greener world
There is an effort now like never before to be more environmentally conscious.
This is particularly true amongst the younger generations, and companies and businesses around the world are taking notice. Sustainability is increasingly becoming a necessity for brands if they want to stay relative in a greener world.
At the moment, Millennials are the largest generation, but they’ll soon be replaced by Gen Z, who are even more mindful about their impact on the planet.
Nielsen studies show that 66% of consumers would spend more for a product if it came from a sustainable brand, and 81% of global consumers feel strongly that companies should help improve the environment.
The world is changing and anyone who doesn’t change with it will be left behind.
Fossil Fuels are dying
We’ve talked before about how fossil fuels are dying, but the pandemic has sped this process up.
According to finance analysts, reported by Forbes, fossil fuel companies are set to face “terminal decline” because of falling demand and higher investment risks caused by competition from clean technologies and tougher government climate targets.
And we see this slow death all around us.
And what are the government building to replace them?
Is it time for your business to switch to commercial solar?
With renewable energy the future, isn’t it time you made the switch?
A business converting to solar power can save thousands in the first year alone. The reduction in energy bills can sometimes be the difference between a small business staying afloat or going under.
And when it comes down to it, the decision is an easy one.
Solar panels save you money, futureproof you against rising energy costs and help in the fight against climate change.
Looking ahead to the next 10 years, it’s obvious to use that solar power is the future and the time to make the switch is now.
