Why is it worthwhile to have photovoltaics? We have 8 reasons for you

Rising energy prices, the need for energy independence, but also the desire for a sustainable way of life. These are all reasons for the growing popularity of photovoltaic power plants in the Czech Republic. According to the Solar Association, nearly 33,000 of them will be built in the country in 2022. This was a 262% increase compared to the previous year. Why are people so interested in photovoltaics? Simply because it pays to have them. Read our 8 reasons that will convince you.

Saves you money

The financial side of things is definitely one of the most common reasons why most of you want to get a PV system. Photovoltaics will generate your own electricity, which will cover 70-90% of your consumption. This can save you up to thousands of crowns a year, as you won’t have to buy as much electricity from the power companies as you used to. This will also give you energy independence.

You will get a return on your investment

We’re not going to lie to you, the initial investment in your own photovoltaic system can be quite challenging. However, the big advantage is that the payback period is 8-10 years. In addition, if you choose PV with hot water heating, you can recoup the money invested in as little as 6 years.

The state will contribute to it

Under the New Green Savings Programme, you can receive up to CZK 205,000 for the installation of photovoltaics. If you live in one of the beneficiary regions, you can receive a grant of up to CZK 225,000. In general, however, the state will support you with a maximum of 50% of the total amount of the PV

You get a renewable and environmentally friendly source of energy

Photovoltaic panels produce electricity from a natural and renewable source – the sun. As an energy source, it is inexhaustible, free and makes it possible to produce so-called clean electricity. In fact, its production does not release any carbon emissions that have a negative impact on our environment. By investing in photovoltaics, you are also supporting the protection of our planet, which is not only valuable but also desirable in this day and age.

Its installation and maintenance is simple

Some are concerned about the difficulty of first installing PV and then maintaining it. In both cases, however, there is no reason to. Installation by professionals is very fast and there is no major intervention in the building during the installation. In addition to the roof, you can also place the PV on a garage, a pergola or on a vacant structure on the property. Subsequent maintenance is then very easy. Just invite the experts for a technical inspection once every 2 years and you are done.

Lasts longer than a pet

Photovoltaic panels usually have a long lifetime. This is almost always more than 15 years, but PV can last 25 years or more. This makes a custom power plant an almost fail-safe solution with easy operation.

You can sell the surplus energy produced

Yes, photovoltaics not only save you money, they can also make you money. If you can generate more electricity than you use in your home, you can store it in a battery. You can then simply take advantage of the possibility of buying electricity from photovoltaics, which is now easier than ever for small producers thanks to an amendment to the law.

Appreciate your property

The situation in which you want to sell your house can occur at any time. If it includes its own photovoltaic system, your property will automatically get a higher value. And trust us, sustainable living is and will be a trend that won’t go out of style.
