If you are considering installing a solar energy system for your home, don’t waste any more time thinking because this is the best time to invest in solar. With many solar panels, inverters, and battery options currently available, not only is the cost for a solar system at an all-time low but you have an endless list of suppliers to choose from. Whether you need to power small appliances or you have a farm and need to power agricultural machinery, whatever your need, solar power can get the job done.

Let’s have a look at some of the most useful solar power options and how they can be helpful in a residential application. 

Solar Geysers

Hot water is a basic requirement of every home, and even more important for people living in cold climates. Whether you use an electric water heater, a gas water heater, or wood-fired geysers, these water heating solutions can be cheap to purchase but very expensive to run.

In contrast, the different types of solar geysers can be a little more costly upfront but their operational cost is close to zero. You also don’t have to worry about refueling them and you are not dependent on a constant supply of fuel to keep the water geyser running. The sun is out every day, and even on rainy days or days where sunlight is low, you will still get hot water. This is one of the most useful solar devices you can invest in for your home.

Solar Air Conditioner

With the summer just around the corner, the demand for air conditioners is rising. There are three different types of solar-powered air conditioner solutions available in the market for domestic purposes. The most frequently used solution is the conventional solar energy system in which solar panels provide the home with AC electricity through a Solar power inverter, and the generated electricity is used to power ACs and other large appliances in the home. This can be slightly expensive to set up but can provide you with a lot of cost savings in the long term.

Solar Powered Water Pumps

Where you might be saving money heating the water, getting it to circulate around the house requires a lot of energy. By using solar energy to power AC or DC water pumps, you can earn considerable savings on electricity. The more water you use, the more power the pumps will require in order to run. This is a solar solution that has a higher return on investments for high-volume users such as those in the agriculture industry.

Even if you have a small home and just a few people to cater to, solar energy systems can be a great solution. More than the fact that you will save money on energy, you will have a very consistent supply of power and you won’t rely on the local electricity grid for your energy. This autonomy also grants you the freedom to run whatever machinery you need to. If you are a high-volume consumer of energy, solar power is even more feasible as it will take you a lot less time to get a return on your investment.
