Solar power for homes is rapidly becoming one of the top ways to conserve energy and go green. However before jumping into this you should also know about some of the lesser known facts about the disadvantages of solar power.
Be careful of the newer solar panels that are made out of thin film. Some of these can be toxic to the environment. The good news is that these normally don't pose an environment threat until they are disposed of, but the truth is that within 20 years they will need to be disposed of.
The way around this is to check with your solar panel manufacturer to find out more about the materials used and how Earth friendly they really are.
At the rate of research and development of new materials and recycling it is hoped that soon there will either be disposable thin solar film panels or a good way to recycle them.
New home solar energy system technology is being developed just about every month. If you are in the market for a solar panel system and are learning about the latest discoveries, you may be tempted to wait until the "newest and most promising" technology is available.
Solar power systems are like everything else in that what might seem like the best product during the research and development stage may not actually become a good marketable product.
If you decide to wait for the next best thing to come along, you might be successful, but you also might also be simply delaying the start of creating your own home solar power system.
Your best time would be spent researching what is available on the market right now, and then coming up with the best system for your home.
