Like wind energy, solar energy offers a pollution free, infinitely sustainable form of energy that can help to reduce our reliance on traditional fossil-based power generation.

Most solar panel suppliers warranty their panels up to 25 years but it is known that some panels are still satisfactorily working after 40 years and producing over 80% capacity.

Governments around the world, including the US, Canada and other industrialized countries, are more and more recognizing the value of solar energy as a vital component of long-term, sustainable economic and environmental well-being, as well as security of energy price and supply.

Governments are rewarding the solar industry with incentives and "green" energy programs that support long-term, affordable, efficient and clean energy from renewable resources.

At the same time, enlightened and forward-thinking energy companies have established renewable-energy business units and investment portfolios that address corporate policy and future economic sustainability, as well as financial performance.
