Doesn’t it seem like a shame to allow all those UV rays go to waste? You don’t have to capture the UV rays for your own uses. You can rely on utility companies to provide your electricity. They’ll pump electricity into the wires of your home day and night and with only occasional power disruptions.
Of course, the utility company will follow up the electricity they send with a monthly invoice. The sun, on the other hand, doesn’t bill us for electricity. The cost comes in setting up the equipment to capture those UV rays. That’s where the difference comes to play.
The utility company will send an invoice each month for the rest of your life. A solar energy system, used to capture the UV rays, only requires payments until the equipment is paid for. From that point forward, the UV rays are as free as sunlight.
With ‘net metering’ the utility company is even required to provide homeowners with solar energy systems with an electric savings account. You’ll receive credits contributed to the electric grid on bright sunny days and you can use those credits for the utility company’s electric on days and nights when the sun isn’t shining.
Another big advantage to capturing UV rays is that it’s pollution free. It also doesn’t create spent nuclear fuel we need to bury in mountains for a 159,200 years or however long it takes until they’re safe. The UV rays will come and it’s only a question of whether you want to catch them. You can almost think of solar energy panels as a modern rain barrel for energy.
