Photovoltaic systems in Cyprus are becoming extremely popular over the past few years and many homeowners take advantage of this technology to generate their own electricity. Although the benefits and advantages of installing photovoltaics are mostly known to the public, many misconceptions and myths surround the idea of photovoltaics. In this article, we are debunking common myths about photovoltaics. Learn more information about installing photovoltaic systems in Cyprus and get in contact with us for more information.

Myth #1 – Solar Panels Require a Lot of Maintenance

There is a very common myth about photovoltaics that require a lot of maintenance. That is far from the truth since they can last up to thirty years with very minimal maintenance from the owner. What the owner needs to do to maintain the photovoltaic systems is to use water and a cloth to dust off the panels every few months and make sure that there aren’t any brunches blocking the photovoltaic panels or any damage done by animals or different weather conditions.

Myth #2 – Solar Panels Don’t Work in Cloudy Weather

Many people have the impression that when the sky is cloudy then the photovoltaics do not work. That is not a fact since although there is no direct sunlight hitting the panels, photovoltaic systems still produce electricity on grey days. It is proven that photovoltaic systems can produce up to 25% of their usual production on the days that the sun in the sky is limited. So now you know that photovoltaic systems will not let you down on the cloudy days of winter in Cyprus.

Myth #3 – Solar Panels Reduce Property Values

Many believe that owning photovoltaic systems can reduce the value of the property, but the truth is that solar panels tend to have higher property values compared to houses that do not have any photovoltaic systems installed. Because the photovoltaic systems are sure to lower your electricity bill, that makes the house a very good option for homeowners looking for an investment in the long run.

If you are thinking to install photovoltaic systems at your house and start producing clean are renewable energy, then now is your time to start looking to install your panels.
