India is the fourth largest market for renewable energy and ranks 5th in terms of solar energy. As per a report, India added 96.96 GW of renewable energy in 2021 and has set an ambitious target of 100 GW of solar energy capacity by 2022, making it one of the world’s most promising destinations for solar investments. Therefore, it’s no wonder that the government is pushing for both solar and other renewable energy sources to reduce its dependence on fossil fuel-based energy sources, which are a major driver of greenhouse emissions.

Therefore, investing in a solar panel for home is one of the best investments you can make in 2021 – as apart from the ecological and power security benefits that it offers, you also get to take advantage of various government schemes and subsidies for individuals opting for solar energy.

However, here are 3 more reasons why it’s an excellent investment:

1. Environmental Benefits

Investing in solar energy isn’t only about monetary benefits but the good you do for the planet by opting for this sustainable energy source. When you opt for solar energy, you reduce your overall carbon footprint by not relying on the main gridline to power your home but by generating your own energy without causing pollution in the environment. Moreover, since solar energy is both sustainable and low-cost, it’s an investment that gives returns like none other.

2. Financial Benefits

As Indians, saving money is hardwired into our brains and, therefore, we have a great habit of saving how much and however we can. Solar energy is unlike any other piece of investment because the returns it offers are unmatched. Imagine making a one-time investment in solar panels for home and then generating free electricity for your entire household for the next 25 years. You never have to pay electricity bills again if you can generate 100% power for yourself, and in case you produce less than that, you will still save money.

3. Get Utility Credits on Electricity Bills

You can send any unused power back to the public utility grid and receive credits for contributing towards the public grid. You can then use the accrued credits to lower your electricity bills by talking to your service provider, setting the terms, and getting credits for any power that you contribute to the main public grid.

So, with so much to gain and nothing to lose, there’s no reason why everyone shouldn’t invest in solar energy this year.
