Homeowners and businesses around the country are progressively more interested in making their lifestyle more sustainable by installing solar panels. To determine whether a home solar power system is worth the investment, it helps to understand the average life span of solar cell panels.

It just means that after that point, their energy production may decrease beyond what solar panel manufacturers will guarantee their rated production output.
