RED ALERT ON POWER IN LUZON: SO NOW WHAT?

RED ALERT ON POWER IN LUZON: SO NOW WHAT?

Luzon power grid placed on red alert

Are solar systems in the Philippines the answer to power shortages? The National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) has raised a yellow alert and then a red alert notice on April 12, 2019. Yellow means there is not enough reserve energy to cover the largest running generating unit. A red alert means there is insufficient power supply in the grid. According to available data, the grid capacity was 10,761 megawatts, while pea demand was estimated to hit 10,607 megawatts. Senator Sherwin Gatchalian even said, “The DOE should remain vigilant for possible collusion due to thin electricity reserves in the midst of high demand.” It is clear to the general public what the consequences will be, should there be shortages of power supply. Summer months are critical months.

 

Something to talk about

Is the drop in power supply the result of simultaneous power plant maintenance shutdowns? This is reminiscent of a similar incident that happened a few years ago. The citizens and the netizens are already questioning and clamoring for answers. Will the power generators require maintenance work once again? Will this trigger the electricity rates to surge once again? What exactly is responsible for the diminishing power reserves and power interruptions in the Luzon grid?

 

So now what?

“As Filipinos, we trust that the government will secure sufficient power capacity for the increased demand in electricity this summer. We cannot afford to have rotational brownouts or blackouts during this time when we are relying on electricity to cope with the summer heat,” says Solaric President Mike De Guzman. For the sake of public interest and general welfare, the nation must start considering alternatives. “Coal is definitely on its way out. That’s a global fact. Coal plants are retiring all over the world. I don’t even think coal will have time for a quick comeback or rebirth. Although it may be part of the energy infrastructure, I think it will no longer serve as the skeletal framework. Other sources are catching up in terms of everything we have to consider: cost, safety, efficiency.”

 

Solar vs fossil fuels

Fossil fuels must be burned to produce electricity, which creates byproducts. These release greenhouse gas emissions to the atmosphere. These cause air and water pollution. Fossil fuels are detrimental and harmful due to invasive processes, with side effects such as erosion, and ecological and geological instability.

 

On the other hand, solar power is abundant, and a free and unlimited resource, which can be harnessed and harvested into power anywhere. Solar is clean, safe, and sustainable. Solar energy is available almost everywhere and will continue to be accessible for another 5 billion years. Most importantly, in the Philippines, solar systems pay for themselves, generating ROI typically within five years.

Unboxing the Macho Box

Unboxing the Macho Box

Solaric caused another mind-blowing disruption in the Philippine solar system spectrum this week when they unveiled the MACHO Box. What is it? It is the Mobile All Conditions High Output Box. In essence, it’s Solaric’s newest portable power solution, good for disaster management, military uses, electrification, and power support. There are three models: Macho 1000, Macho 2000, and Macho 3000, with variations in wattage output, battery capacity, watt-hour rating, size, dimension, and weight. The Macho Box is rugged and can withstand all types of outdoor conditions. “Any respectable man would want to own one of these,” says Solaric Corp.’s President Mike De Guzman (MDG). He subjected the Macho 3,000 to various tests as the audience watched in awe. The box managed to power an espresso machine, a refrigerator, and an aircon. MDG took it a step further. He left the aircon running, attached only to Macho Box power, as he sat there and entertained us during the interview.

 

What’s in store for us

MDG shared his vision for his company’s immediate future – and it was, as usual, filled with monumental disruptions. “I’m absolutely certain that 2019 will be the year of solar disruptions,” he told the audience. “All signs are clearly pointing towards the future that we don’t just envision, but one that we NEED. We need to realign our goals and create a fully sustainable and renewable future.”

 

It’s a lifestyle

It’s a lifestyle

MDG went on to tackle some current issues and concerns among the homeowners and citizens. “Everything is falling into place. Let’s just pray that Net Metering because easy and hassle-free. Let’s count on the policy makers laying down ground rules that make sense. I imagine a tomorrow in which every single Filipino will join the clamor for solar and make it their lifestyle – because of two simple reasons: you save money and you save the planet. Why would you need any other reason to turn on the sun?”

 

All about the sun

“Solaric is definitely not just about installing solar panel systems and delivering solar solutions. We promote a clean and renewable lifestyle. We advocate clean energy. Today, we spend as much time devoting ourselves to massive community outreach projects as we did when we first started.”

 

When asked why, MDG shrugged and replied, “The way I see it, in theory, we all live under one roof. So every night I go to bed and I dream of a sustainable future because it is the only thing that matters.”

May 60k Ka: iPhone o Solar?

May 60k Ka: iPhone o Solar?

Solar Digital Squad
Manila, Philippines
April 1, 2019

Introducing Paul Francisco from Gen. Trias, Cavite, a baseball coach for the last ten years. Together with his wife and son, they live in a simple house that runs the average family’s basic household appliances: two flat screen televisions, a stereo, two aircon, electric fans, a refrigerator, an oven, an electric stove, and a washing machine. His typical monthly electric bill is about Php2,400 to Php2,600 each month. In December of 2018, he decided to install solar panels in his Philippine home with one end goal in mind: a lower monthly electric bill.

 

Sun tidbits

Using the sun to power household appliances is a recent technological development that is now evolving how the world uses power in the present day. Now, having a simple sulit solar system installed on your roof is easy, simple, and hassle-free.

 

iPhone or Solar?

iPhone or Solar?

“Syempre, inalam ko muna ang magiging silbi nya sa buhay namin. Parang cellphone din yan eh. Kung bibili ka, anong silbi? Kung bibili ako ng mamahalin na cellphone like iPhone, or ano mang mamahalin na brand na cellphone, ako lang makikinabang sa cellphone. Pag binili ko yung solar na yan, mas maraming mapakinabangan. Everyday mapakinabangan mo sya – lifetime. Alam namin na nababawasan ang bill namin sa kuryente monthly!”

 

After weighing out his options, Paul decided that the benefits of solar outweighed any advantages or gains of any cellphone or gadget. That month of December, he installed solar: 590 watts, 2 solar panels, with a Solis inverter. The all-inclusive total cost was Php60,000.

 

After installing solar

His typical electric bill in the past was approximately Php2,500. In January, Paul received his electric bill: Php1,600+. That was a drop of 900 pesos in the electric bill.

 

“Nag try kaming gamitin yung kuryente. Nakita namin hindi gumagalaw yung aming electric meter. Na-amaze kami, natuwa kami! Okay ito! Totoo pala ang sinasabi nila – totoo ang solar!”

 

Paul received yet another electric bill in February 2019, two months after installing solar. This time, his balance due was Php1,200+. That translated to half his usual electric bill and an equivalent of Php1,300+ in monthly savings. Now, his family could use these savings for groceries and other essentials.

 

Why Paul chose Solaric

Why Paul chose Solaric

“Maraming mga brands dyan na solar. Di ko naman sila kilala. At least kilala ko yung taong binilhan ko, and nakita ko yung proof sa bahay nang binilhan ko.” Paul was clear in his trust and faith in the brand, because he heard the client testimonials and witnessed the electric bill drops of other satisfied solar customers.

 

#SolarGoals

#SolarGoals

“Ang pinakagusto kong mangyari, magpakabit pa ako ng 2 solar panels, para maging zero na yung bill ko. Yun ang gusto kong target na makukuha ko.” Paul believes in a clean, renewable future, and he believes that he too, shouldn’t have to pay for expensive power. The coveted Zero Bill is his ultimate goal. “Sulit sya at napatunayan ko na. Mamaya, mag-aircon na ko!”

QUEZON CITY: 8 REASONS YOU SHOULD GO SOLAR THIS SUMMER

QUEZON CITY: 8 REASONS YOU SHOULD GO SOLAR THIS SUMMER

Solar Digital Squad
Manila, Philippines
March 26, 2019

 

Have you ever wondered whether the benefits of solar panels in the Philippines are actually worth the costs? Every Filipino has that on their mind. Is this clean, safe, healthy, sustainable, and renewable energy source really worth it? The costs have dropped. Everyone is on a solar trend. Solar panel installations increase by 70% year on year. What is it about solar that you need to know? Do you need convincing? Well here are 8 reasons why you should install solar!

 

To Get Rid of the High Electric Bill

The number one reason to go solar is because of the always increasing and unpredictable electricity rates. There is only one way to avoid that constantly rising utility expense: by not having an expense to pay for in the first place. By going solar, you can reduce that electric bill by 70%. That translates to significant monthly savings! If you want more, then you can even eliminate that utility bill and make that electric bill go zero. You just need to approach the solar experts!

 

To Save Thousands of Pesos Each Month

The average solar panel system installation cost is approximately Php300,000. If that seems too expensive, then consider the fact that solar consumers save an average of Php10,000 each month in the first year alone. That translates to Php120,000 each year. In ten years, that equates to Php1.2 Million. That’s a whopping Php2.4 Million in 20 years. The system pays for itself within five years, and you continue to save money on your monthly electric bill forever.

 

To Increase Your Property Value

Whether the property is a home or a business, a solar panel system installation is an investment. In other words, ROI is achievable in an average of five years. In addition to that, solar panels on your roof make the property green, sustainable, and renewable. This makes it much more attractive to buyers!

 

To Save the Environment

Traditional sources of power involve burning fossil fuels and this causes environmental pollution. Think green. Our planet needs us to start lowering our carbon footprint. We need to prioritize saving planet earth. One solar system installation typically offsets 178 tons of carbon dioxide over the course of 30 years. To put things into perspective, this is equivalent to planting 10 football fields full of trees. So it’s either that, or we continue to burn fossil fuels and destroy the planet’s ozone layer and contribute to global warming. To save the planet, go solar.

 

To Enjoy Energy Security

The sun is an unlimited resource and provides approximately four million tons of energy every single second. The entire human population only uses 0.0001% of that amount in terms of global energy consumption. In other words, we never need to worry about energy running out.

We present different strategies to ensure that you achieve your solar goals. We want to ensure reduced expenses and increased savings so that you make that one-time wise business and environmental investment.

It’s Summer and It’s Hot – Should You Get Solar?

It’s Summer and It’s Hot – Should You Get Solar?

How Beth Installed 50 Solar Panels and Reduced Her Electric Bill by P20,000

Solar Digital Squad
Manila, Philippines
March 25, 2019

 

Something about Beth

Here’s a story of how solar panels in the Philippines has changed the lives of people. In an exclusive, private, gated subdivision in Muntinlupa, stands the 2-story house of Tita Beth. On a typical day, the appliances that the household runs includes a washing machine, dryer, a handful of aircons, television, fans, refrigerator, freezer, computer, and gadgets. Her monthly electric bill was approximately P25,000 two years ago. Beth was exhausted from having to always make sacrifices in her own home. She always had to be frugal and practical – in the spirit of maintaining affordable utility expenses.

 

For decades, Beth made tipid and realized she deserves to just leave the aircon on. Guilt-free. Years ago, she even enrolled her household to go for the Peak off Peak (POP) plan with Meralco so she can get cheaper rates during late night in exchange for higher daytime rates. Laundry and vacuuming were scheduled during off-peak hours, but over the years, these have changed to mostly daytime.

 

Adventures and travels

Beth likes to go on adventures and travel to different countries all over the world. When asked why she decided to install solar, she said, “It’s what we see everywhere! Whenever we travel, we see everyone using solar panels! It’s everywhere, even in the outskirts. Japan, Germany, England, Europe, everywhere.”

Beth discovered that in many parts of the world, people do not sacrifice power consumption. In fact, they produce it and consume it, and they do so without contributing to world pollution. So Beth studied, researched, made calls, canvassed, and finally chose Solaric, the king of rooftop solar and the ultimate masters in eradicating that high power bill.

In 2016, when she noticed that the monthly electric bill was averaging Php25,000 during the summer heat, she knew it was time to go solar. After discussing a solar panel system with her husband, Beth realized that aside from saving money, they would be able to help protect the environment. It was a definite win-win investment.

 

How she got started

Using the sun to run all your appliances is a recent technological development and we guide our customers step by step on using solar: how to size properly, handle maintenance and Net metering permitting, how to manage the system, and more, so that the utility company will BUY the surplus power. Our solar engineers go through the electrical usage patterns and examine what appliances are used during daytime and nighttime hours, determine the power consumption, and identify how much solar energy your roof can generate using precise computations. From there, we can forecast solar impact on your electric bills with the desired solar panel system installation in mind.

Beth contacted the recognized leader in rooftop solar and requested a site survey. The solar professionals and engineers went to her home, examined the property, roof, solar capacity, and its surrounding area. They then evaluated the solar project potential or capability. The solar experts analyzed Beth’s electric bills in recent months. They determined the most appropriate solar panel installation for her home. They then designed a solar system that could produce enough power to meet the home’s consumption or usage and sent her a detailed proposal.

 

Solar panel system installation

They went on to have the Solaric experts install a 5 kWp grid tie system of 20 solar panels on their roof. Two years later, after realizing the stream of steady savings and understanding the importance of a sustainable and renewable future, they decided to have another 30 panels installed. As of summer 2019, Beth has a 13 kWp grid tie system of 50 solar panels installed. “Hopefully, it will have a greater impact on the environment,” she mused.

 

Tell us about what happened after

She went on to share some stories about how, pre-solar, she would have the air conditioners shut off at a certain time on a daily basis. However, Beth and her household no longer have to worry about saving on power usage. “We can use the aircon, dryer, and appliances the whole day! And still, the bill continues to drop. The best thing about all of this is that the kids are enjoying guilt-free aircon!”

 

Now, what about the savings?

This is usually the question that the satisfied Solaric clients love the most. What do you do with the savings? “All my savings go to my travel fund. That way, I have more money to shop when I travel,” Beth smiled.

 

Wait because there’s more

Beth was not just satisfied because of the savings or the environmental win. “I love the Solaric team! They’re very professional. Everything is on schedule. When I ask questions, I easily get answers from them. They explain everything to me – they explain in basic terms especially when I need them to break down to me about what is means in pesos!” She was happiest about the responsiveness of the Solaric team – which comprised the entire company, from the survey team to the installation crew to the ever-important aftersales customer support team. And that is how Solaric makes a difference. No one else can Turn On The Sun the way we do.

THE PHILIPPINES: ARE WE TURNING ON THE SUN?

THE PHILIPPINES: ARE WE TURNING ON THE SUN?

Shifting Gears Toward Clean, Sustainable, and Renewable Energy This 2019

Solar Digital Squad
Manila, Philippines
March 21, 2019

 

The solar industry in a nutshell

Solar power is beginning to play a massive role in delivering clean and safe energy to the world population. There are various giants at play in this industry. In countries like the Philippines, solar panel parts and accessories manufacturers market products such as inverters, mounting racks, batteries, energy storage systems, etc. Solar panel manufacturers make, develop, produce, and distribute solar panels. Solar installers offer a one-stop shop, or a turnkey solution for solar power systems from system design, engineering, installation, to maintenance and support. These are usually the top-of-mind names that the end consumers are familiar with.

 

Cost per click and cost per watt

Back in the day, business talks revolved around CPC, or cost per click. This 2019, discussions focus on Cost Per Watt. This is one of the most important metrics to know and understand because this is how to determine efficiency and production costs.

 

The key takeaway

The growth of the solar industry will continue. The International Energy Agency estimates that by 2022, global capacity will be between 1,000 and 1,300 gigawatts (GW), while GTM Research estimates global capacity at 871 GW by 2022. This can be summed up in one simple sentence: global solar demand will continue to rise over time.

 

Is climate change getting worse?

The entire planet is adversely affected by climate change, which is why various countries are embracing renewable energy, especially solar. Almost 100% of Iceland’s energy comes from renewable sources. Sweden has boldly declared its goal of eliminating fossil fuels. Germany runs on 20% renewable energy. Costa Rica has a target of being absolutely carbon neutral by year 2021. The Philippines has a longer dry season. Thus, we have more sunshine. What is our goal in the Philippines?

 

Who is the biggest pure-play solar installer in the Philippines?

Solaric is the recognized king of rooftop solar. Solaric has established its name across the renewable industry as a proven and reputable rooftop solar leader. Backed by decades of experience, Solaric has installed more than 50% of residential rooftop solar panels in the Philippines and has delivered significant cost reductions in electricity expenses, as well as milestone contributions to a cleaner, greener, and renewable future.

SOLARIC DELIVERS THE ZERO BILL PHENOMENON

SOLARIC DELIVERS THE ZERO BILL PHENOMENON

The Solar Gamechangers Talk About How They Deliver the #ZeroBill

 

Solar Digital Squad
Manila, Philippines
March 21, 2019

 

The Zero Bill: Is it real?

Zero bill clients are starting to pop up from different cities: Makati, Muntinlupa, Quezon City. In the Philippines, solar systems, something perceived by many as a mystery, are now fast becoming a reality to them. Let us take a look at Lito, a client who lives in an exclusive, gated subdivision in the prime center of Makati City. His electric bill averages to about Php30,000 each month. His household daytime appliances include a washing machine, three television sets, a dryer, a chest freezer, five air conditioner units, and a swimming pool pump. Six years ago, he installed a 5 kWp grid-tie solar system and registered for Meralco’s Net Metering Program with Peak/Off-Peak (POP). Less than a year later, his electric bill hit zero. Yes, the total amount due was a whopping Php0.00.

 

The translation

What does the zero bill translate to? It means that the household now uses the sun as a means of power, especially during the daytime. Laundry can be done daily using the washing machine and dryer, without worrying about the power consumption of the dryer and its peso equivalent. A zero bill means all aircons in the house can be turned on during the daytime, and family members can lounge around indoors, feet propped up on the couch, with Netflix and popcorn, in the luxury of guilt-free AC. Why? The investment in a solar system in the Philippines pays off. ROI is typically within 3 to 5 years. The benefits are forever.

 

The choice of a solar lifestyle

When Filipinos contemplate on buying rooftop solar, people have a wide range of reasons and reflections. Some want to save money. Some want to profit. Some want to keep up with the pace of technology. Most want to be smart: they want to consume power and produce power at the same time. Installing rooftop solar is a win-win decision for everyone and everything: homes, factories, warehouses, storage facilities, cold storage plants, establishments, farms, hotels, resorts, hospitals, schools, buildings, and more. Everyone wants to be paid for providing clean solar power to the grid. The only way to do that is to get solar. At the same time, you contribute to a clean, safe, healthy, sustainable, and renewable future.

 

How to get that zero bill

There are various ways to set up solar so that you will never have to pay for power again.  Check out our website for a free site inspection today.

The leading option that has become the nation’s trend is installing a large solar power system because that is how to guarantee a zero bill.

Learn more about solar power systems and solar panel prices here.

 

Why solar is the best investment this 2019

A large solar power system makes sense both financially and environmentally. Buying and installing solar increases your property value. Whether you install solar at the house, office, building, warehouse, factory, farm – the market and property value increases. Now, with more people becoming even more educated about solar, the demand for solar properties is the highest it has ever been.

 

How to become a consumer and a provider

The best option to guarantee a zero bill is to install a large solar system, one with enough rooftop solar so that the credits you receive from the utility company from exporting surplus electricity reduces your bill to zero. In other words, the surplus electricity from your solar system will be exported to the grid. This will offset your consumption from the grid.

 

Breaking it down for every Juan

In layman’s terms: have a solar solutions team install plenty of solar panels on your roof and generate enough power. Then export this power to the utility company. In doing this, you do not have to pay a single centavo on your electric bills. Better yet, you get paid for the electricity that you will provide. The zero bill is a benefit from being a consumer and provider.

IS YOUR BUSINESS PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE?

IS YOUR BUSINESS PREPARED FOR THE FUTURE?

Commercial and Industrial Are Now Fast Shifting to Renewable Energy

“Our solar initiatives should already go beyond barriers. It’s time. There should be strong willpower from every single Filipino to go green whenever they can, wherever they can,” says Jade De Guzman, Vice President of Solaric Corp.

 

Do fossil fuels power your business?

The industry buzz is about a possible shortage of power in the near future. Now is the time for businesses in the Philippines to use solar panels. In the Luzon grid, reports claim that “reserve energy” has reportedly dropped to “below minimum levels due to the unexpected shutdown and limited generation of some power plants.” This has led to high demand for electricity. The facts are clear: peak demand for power is nearing peak capacity. Numerous malls, buildings, hospitals, educational institutions, factories, warehouses, and industrial facilities are fast adopting the global trend and installing megawatts (MW) of rooftop solar. Many commercial and industrial projects are now underway, as firms begin to align themselves to target power production capacities from rooftop solar in the coming years.

 

And then there’s El Niño

Since the turn of 2019, state weather bureau PAGASA warned the nation that Filipinos would experience less rainfall due to El Niño, but few heeded the warning. Now, provinces are declaring a state of calamity due to drought. The question is: are Filipinos ready for the effects and damages that will result? The long dry season will negatively impact the country – especially where Metro Manila is – because peak demand for power will hit in the peak of summer, which is May. On the other hand, hydroelectric power plants in Luzon are reducing capacity by 30% from April to June. A quick run on the figures shows that Luzon will have to import at least 350 MW of power from other grids or sources or power plants to supply the needs and address the power outages. This is exactly why the commercial and industrial sector has been turning to solar power for power supply. Sunlight is a free source of energy and solar power is renewable and sustainable. Self-generation of power is what 2019 is all about.

 

Solar for businesses this 2019

Commercial solar panels are feasible for businesses of all sizes: small to medium to Fortune 500. Solar is not just for Apple, Microsoft, or Netflix. Every business should capitalize on solar. Every business should take advantage of financial opportunities and invest in solar. A solar power system is a key strategic decision that offers a solid financial return for the business. There are three reasons why businesses should go solar: the business becomes a green company, the business incurs monthly savings, the business invests in a guaranteed ROI.

 

Let’s talk about them

The entire planet is adversely affected by climate change, which is why various countries are embracing renewable energy, especially solar. Almost 100% of Iceland’s energy comes from renewable sources. Sweden has boldly declared its goal of eliminating fossil fuels. Germany runs on 20% renewable energy. Costa Rica has a target of being absolutely carbon neutral by the year 2021. The Philippines has a longer dry season. Thus, we have more sunshine. What is our goal in the Philippines?

Installing a solar panel system for the business in the Philippines is a wise, significant, one-time investment that provides energy savings for 25 years. In essence, it means free power in the long term.

SOLAR PANELS FOR BUSINESSES: HOW SOLAR CAN SAVE YOUR BUSINESS MONEY

SOLAR PANELS FOR BUSINESSES: HOW SOLAR CAN SAVE YOUR BUSINESS MONEY

Does commercial solar make sense?

Does commercial solar make sense?

Some business owners and executives in the Philippines consider solar panels for businesses with hesitation because they have little grasp of the market, advantages, and effects that the solar panels will have on the business. Despite being aware that numerous Fortune 500 companies are adopting a solar mindset and utilizing renewable energy, thousands of global companies are still wary about green initiatives and environmental efficiency. In today’s eco-aware world, business professionals should start considering installing solar panels at some point in the near future – not only to become environmentally sound but because it is most certainly a strategic financial decision for the business.

There are three reasons why businesses should go solar: the business becomes a green company, the business incurs monthly savings, the business invests in a guaranteed ROI.

 

The question is simple: does the business have a roof?

The question is simple: does the business have a roof?

Since more than 100 of the Fortune 500 enterprises have experienced significant results by using solar power, then it is time for all other businesses to follow suit and embrace solar. Most businesses conduct operations during daytime hours, which is the time which the sun’s rays shine bright and the business can maximize the benefits of the unlimited source of the power of the sun. Any business can install solar: factories, warehouses, office buildings, cold storage facilities, restaurants, car dealerships, BPOs, schools, hospitals, city halls – any business that has a roof can benefit from solar power and save money each and every month. Once the business has a solar panel system installed, the business can register for Net Metering. Then it can sell its surplus solar energy during the hours in which they are not operational, such as Sundays and holidays. On regular business days, the business can use solar as their primary source of power.

Give me the solar updates

It’s 2019. Today’s typical solar panel system no longer needs batteries because solar can now be merged with utility power. The system is called a Grid Tie System. In this setup, the solar power is tapped and utilized first. When power from that source is exhausted, then the grid power is used. In instances when there is more solar power than grid power, on days such as Sundays and holidays when the business may not be operational, the power generated by the solar panel system is sold to the utility company for credits via the Net Metering program. Every 6 square meters of the roof with solar panels can produce 1400 to 1700 kWh of energy each year – or the energy content in a barrel of oil. For companies who want to be green and are focusing on sustainability, solar is the answer.

 

How much can the business save from using solar?

How much can the business save from using solar?

When a solar panel system is installed for a business, the bill reductions or the money savings range from 20% to 70%. It all depends on how much rooftop solar was installed and how large the electric bill was. Various factors are at play in determining the size of the solar system that your business requires. Additional information is necessary. Daytime electricity usage needs to be analyzed. The electric bill is reviewed. The hours of operation and power consumption are considered. Actual measurements need to be made by a team of engineers and installers.

 

“It is definitely time to lead businesses towards sustainability. It’s about marketing the company as green and renewable – because there is great importance in that. On the other hand, the primary driver for the business is reduce their monthly utility expenses. What business doesn’t want that?” says Mike De Guzman, President of Solaric Corp.

How Another Satisfied Client Reduced Her Electric Bill by P3,000 Right After Installing Rooftop Solar

Manila, Philippines
March 12, 2019

 

All about Grace

In a private, gated subdivision in Malabon, stands the 3-story home of Tita Grace. On a typical day, the daytime appliances that the household runs includes a washing machine, dryer, television, fans, aircons, refrigerator, freezer, computer, and gadgets. Her monthly electric bill was approximately P12,000.

 

The buzz about solar

Grace started hearing the buzz about solar panels in the Philippines and its explosive boom in the past decade, especially here in the Philippines. She learned about how it was fast becoming the number one solution to power. She also started seeing videos on Facebook about homeowners who installed rooftop solar, and how those homeowners became more energy efficient, protected the environment, and saved money.

 

She wanted to reduce costs too

Grace wanted to lower her monthly electric bill. She wanted what those homeowners had: reduced expenses and increased savings. So she decided to make that one-time wise business and environmental investment.

 

How she got started

Grace contacted a leader in rooftop solar and requested a site survey. The solar professionals and engineers went to her home, examined the property, roof, solar capacity, and its surrounding area. They then evaluated the solar project potential or capability. The solar experts analyzed Grace’s electric bills in recent months. They determined the most appropriate solar panel installation for her home. They then designed a solar system that could produce enough power to meet the home’s consumption or usage and sent her a detailed proposal.

 

It was a go

She went on to install a 1.77 kWp Grid Tie System – which does not use any batteries. It is basically a solar power system that is connected to the utility power grid. When asked why she decided to install a grid-tie system, Grace said, “I save more money with a grid tie system because it’s cheaper, plus I can avail of Net Metering and Peak Off-Peak (POP). With net metering, I can even sell my excess electricity to the utility grid. For my entire system, I only spent P140,000. That’s one fourth the value of buying a car, and yet my entire family will benefit from it forever.”

 

What happened after

How much did Grace save? She showed us her pre-solar bills and the post-solar bill (one month after her rooftop solar was installed). Her new bill was a surprising P9,000, which equated to instant savings of P3,000. “My savings went to groceries… and entertainment,” she grinned.

 

Wait there’s more

It was not the savings nor the benefits that Grace loved the most about her newly installed rooftop solar from Solaric. “The best thing I love about Solaric is their customer service. I did not understand much of the technical stuff and I was not so knowledgeable about solar panels. I had to call them all the time. What I appreciated the most is that they always got in touch with me – even when they were in the middle of meetings, and even when they were out in the field.”

Solaric is the Solar Service Leader

At Solaric, we always do our best to deliver fast, efficient, and thorough customer service. We are in the business of not just selling solar panels – but also enabling Solar-powered lifestyles. With this, we want to provide endless satisfaction by delivering Solaric Service Satisfaction, ranging from permanent reduction of electric bills to the ultimate ZERO bill.

 

Using the sun to run all your appliances is a recent technological development and we guide our customers step by step on using solar: how to size properly, handle maintenance and Net metering permitting, how to manage the system, and more, so that the utility company will BUY the surplus power. Our solar engineers go through the electrical usage patterns and examine what appliances are used during daytime and nighttime hours, determine the power consumption, and identify how much solar energy your roof can generate using precise computations. From there, we can forecast a solar impact on your electric bills with the desired solar panel system installation in mind.

 

Grace wanted to try out solar panels in the Philippines first to see what six panels can do before going all out for the phenomenal Zero Bill system. Apparently, the price is not the only thing she factored in. She was more keen on the responsiveness of the Solaric team – which comprised the entire company, from the survey team to the installation crew to the ever-important aftersales customer support team. And that is how Solaric makes a difference. No one else can Turn On The Sun the way we do.
