The Economics Behind Solar Cost Saving

We might have been sleeping in economics, but these laws apply.  As a mini refresher, the following are the four fundamental laws of supply and demand:

1. If demand rises and supply remains unchanged, then it leads to higher equilibrium price and quantity.
2. If demand drops and supply remains unchanged, then it leads to lower equilibrium price and quantity.
3. If supply rises and demand remains unchanged, then it leads to lower equilibrium price and higher quantity.
4. If supply drops and demand remains unchanged, then it leads to higher price and lower quantity.

Bigger Is Better

Generally, the larger the array, the more electricity is produced. Photovoltaic, or PV for short, is a technology that transforms light directly into electricity. PV is a developing field and uses several different techniques: monocrystalline (single crystal), polycrystalline (multiple crystals), cadmium telluride, gallium arsenide, or amorphous silicon installed as a thin film. The primary advantage of monocrystalline cells is their higher efficiency and therefore smaller space requirements. Thin film can be cheaper to produce but is significantly less efficient, requiring more area which results in more labor, mounting hardware, and bottom-line values.
Since monocrystalline technology offers consumers a better product along with a greater bang for their buck, The Solar Company makes confident that this is the material used for their customers.

This post will concentrate on silicon, our most popular and prime solar material friend. Since the very beginning of solar panel production and installation, the demand and supply for solar panels have shifted throughout time. Slow or stagnant demand alongside limited amount was the economic beginning of the solar panel, a financial status that has continually changed even till today.

Previously, silicon supply was more limited; thus, adding to the soaring cost of production and pricing. In the last ten years or so; however, with operations to produce more silicon supply, prices have been dropping for solar panels making it more affordable for customers as well as more beneficial toward their investment goals.

Enough Solar

If enough solar energy can be used to power the residential property or commercial property and outweigh the cost of conventional electricity, then the solution and decision making for customers becomes simple.

Whether it’s sure to contribute to society in a positive environmental way and to lower personal long-term electricity prices, customers goals can be more readily available in the proper conditions.

Today, many local government jurisdictions have also provided subsidies and incentives to drive a greener environment.

At this rate, it is likely that demand will continue to grow alongside the growth of supply, keeping prices lower than before thereby adding value to the Earth and to the living things that reside on it.
