Are Solar Panels Worth It for The Cost?
You may be asking: “Are the long-term gains enough to justify the cost?”
Solar panel systems often pay themselves back from anywhere between 2-7 years, depending on the system. The bigger and more complex the system, the longer it will take as a rule of thumb. However, these larger systems often last longer and also will no doubt generate more power during its lifetime.
LONGi solar panels, the brand our company uses, have a 25-year performance warranty. While also guaranteeing a performance of 84.4% after 25 years (whereas most solar companies will only guarantee 75—80%). After which they will continue to produce free energy for your household for many years!
