4 Myths About Solar Programs in Cherry Hill, Busted!

There are a lot of myths floating around about solar programs in Cherry Hill, but here are the four most dangerous myths that need to be busted immediately.

Myth 1: Solar Panels Are Not Pretty to Look At

Solar panels have come a long way. They have become more efficient in function and more beautiful in form. Solar panels usually sit on the roofs of houses, making many homeowners nervous about their impact on the house’s curb appeal. But they do not need to worry.

Today, solar panels come in various styles for homeowners to take their pick. You can buy silver or black frames; the solar cells could be blue or black; and the system could be open-wire or closed with a hidden conduit. Modern PV panels blend into shingles, tiles, greenery, and other elements.

Myth 2: Manufacturing Process Is Environmentally Unfriendly

That is not true. Solar energy power plants do not generate greenhouse gases or air pollution. Using solar energy has a positive effect on the environment. Solar panels do require the use of glass and metal, which have an energy-intensive manufacturing process. Nevertheless, studies have shown that PV systems take around 1 to 4 years to produce the equivalent amount of energy used to manufacture them. With an average life of 25 years, PV systems do not create any net negative effect, which makes their lifecycle completely environmentally friendly.

Myth 3: Solar Panels May Cause Roof Damage

Solar panels do not cause roof damage because there is a lot of pre-installation preparation. When you request to install a solar system on the roof, the installers will inspect your roof first. They will find the best spot for installation and whether it can withstand the weight.

Once the solar power system is installed, the installers will seal the holes they made on the roof during the process. Most importantly, they also provide a full workmanship warranty, ranging from 5 to 25 years.

Myth 4: You Need a Tracking System to Follow the Sun

You don’t “need” a tracking system to follow the sun. Here is why.

  • Fixed Mount Solar Panels: The installer determines the best orientation for installing the solar panels. These panels are installed to get the highest amount of sunlight for maximum hours of the day.
  • Solar systems with sun tracking systems: If you live in an area with little daylight, you can opt for a sun tracking system. However, it’s completely automatic and requires no additional effort from you.

Moreover, PV cells turn sunlight, not “sunshine,” into electricity. So, they work perfectly fine throughout the day and do not need a tracker to maneuver their orientation to work optimally constantly.
