Cost of solar panels

We seem to be more and more interested in the cost of solar panels due to the fact that the cost of fuel and energy has risen considerably. Even though the prices rise we still need to worm and light our home so the ideal solution is solar panels. With the help of solar panels you will be able to use clean and free energy from the sun. It is impossible to give an exact cost of the solar panels because it depends on how much energy you need and what type of climate is in your area.

• History

People have been exploiting the sun for hundreds of years, it is not a new trend discovered by the modern man. In the past people used magnifying glasses to light up torches. History gives us an example of the first machine to work entirely on sun power. Horace de Saussure is a Swiss scientist who created a cooking machine which worked with solar energy.

• Types

There are two types of solar panels available on the market, we have evacuated heat tubes and flat plate panels. The flat plate panels are the most popular solar panels and the most used in households. However, there is a disadvantage in using flat plate panels they lose heat because the panels have gaps between them. This is how the evacuated heat tubes were invented, they do not lose heat like the other ones do. For example, on the market a tube collector such as Apricus 30 costs about 2000 $ while a Rheem flat panel kit costs only 1470 $.

• Considerations

If you want to add solar panels on your home or any building for that manner you have to take into consideration all the costs that come with them. According to some specialists the cost for installing a solar system is between 25.000 $ and 100.000 $. If you think that the costs are too high you have to take into consideration that this is a long term investment because with the help of this system you will be able to save a lot of energy.

So, if you want to know the cost of solar panels you should go to a specialized company and ask them to come and look at your place. After taking a look at your home they will be able to give you an idea on how much it is going to cost you.
