-- So what are the benefits, what costs are involved to install solar panels and how much can you save on electricity bills?With solar power installed in your home, ultimately it means you will use less electricity from your chosen electricity provider, especially during times of the day and year where sunlight is more prolonged and intense. One drawback is that this occurs during the day when many people are at work or aren't at home on a regular basis so many people with think that they won't be able to get the full advantage of solar power in their home. This is where another great benefit comes into play. During the day, any unused solar energy is exported from your Electrical Panel into the local power grid. Your energy provider can measure the unused solar energy exported into the grid and your electricity provider will buy back your unused electricity. This can then be used as a credit or rebate off your electricity bill for electricity used under normal circumstances (such as night time when solar energy isn't being produced).
