TAAL VOLCANO ASH ON YOUR SOLAR PANELS

What Should You Do and How Should You Do It?

A few days into 2020 and we were struck by a tragedy when the Taal Volcano erupted on the afternoon of January 12, ending its 43 years of silence. The eruption caused ashfall in Batangas and nearby provinces like Cavite and Laguna, and even reaching as far as Metro Manila. Toxic ash with a foul odor and hazardous particulate matter instantly transformed the land into a vast color of gloomy gray.

 

What happens to my system?

When solar panels are covered with thick layers of ash, the performance of the solar panel system decreases. The power loss increases with the increase in the quantity of ash on the PV system. In some instances, it can be a complete drop of output if the ashen panels have already hardened and become “espasol”.

 

What do I do?

Anyone can clean their own panels as long as safety practices are observed. Volcanic ash can be dangerous as its particles are very hard and tiny with jagged edges. It can cause eye, nose, and lung irritation. It can also cause breathing problems. Thick layers of ash can accumulate and harden, causing roofs to collapse over time and clogging your house’s gutters. This is why you should observe extreme caution and be careful of its residue.

 

How do I do it?

When cleaning a roof with ash, it’s important to do so safely and have a lifeline or rope, a good set of rubber shoes, a dust mask (N95 or equivalent), helmet, and goggles. In other words, proper and complete Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Other materials needed are a broom/walis, a walis tambo, a scooper or trowel, trash bags, a hose, and running water. A power washer could be used but set on the broadest spray option to do the job effectively and not overly abrade the panels.

 

5 Steps in Cleaning the Ash Off Your Solar Panels

  1. Take out as much debris as possible from the solar panels and roof – carefully. Make sure to clean out the gutter. You can plug the gutter hole with an old, wet t-shirt or rag to avoid ash from building up in the pipes.
  2. Brush out the debris carefully with a broom or soft-bristled brush.
  3. After most of the ash has been swept and removed from the roof, rinse down the remaining debris.
  4. The panels can then be washed and cleaned with a squeegee or soft brush. Some dishwashing liquid soap can be used, with a tablespoon of baking soda, mixed in a bucket of water. The baking soda will help neutralize the acidity of the ash. This mixture can be used as the final soap wash.
  5. Rinse. Do not dry wipe the panels with visible dust because it will make the cloth act like sandpaper.

 

Do note that the roof will be slicker than normal when ash is mixed with water/soapy water.

DOES COLD WEATHER AFFECT YOUR SOLAR SYSTEM?

Top view of a building with solar amidst a city

It’s the holidays and at the same time, the temperature continues to drop. Will it affect the performance of your solar system?

 

It is the sun’s light

Top shot of a solar panel with sunlight bouncing off of it

Even during cold seasons including areas that experience winter or snow or rain, your solar system will continue to generate power. This is because solar panels create electricity through the sun’s light and not heat. Probably one of the best advantages of solar power is that it is not affected by the external temperature. In fact, colder temperatures can improve and enhance the performance of your system. In addition to that, too much heat can cause energy losses because hot temperatures, especially during summer, can result in the elevation of electrons’ energy levels. The state of this high energy impedes the production of electricity since the energy is transformed into heat instead of electricity.

External temperatures do not affect the sunlight gathered by the solar panels but it does impact how energy is produced inside the cells. That is why even if there is the same quantity of sunlight, too much heat on the panels can cause drops in energy produced. This is also the reason why cool and colder temperatures can be beneficial to your system.

 

Chilly winds

Solar systems consistently prove themselves as reliable sources of electricity even in extremely cold climates, unless the solar panels are covered in snow – which is not applicable for the Philippines given that it is a tropical country. Rest assured that the cold winds brought to you by this season will not reduce your energy production and will blow away the heat instead to ensure better performance of your system. Owners also do not need to be afraid of strong winds as solar panels can sustain winds of up to 200kph – installed tough only by Solaric.

SOLARIC DELIVERS JOY TO THE CHILDREN OF CARAMOAN

The Bawal Brownout Christmas Gift

BMW Owners Society of Safe Riders (BOSS) donating televisions to a school

On November 8, 2019, members of the BMW Owners Society of Safe Riders (BOSS) and volunteers from Solaric Corp. headed over to a place that was more than 500 kilometers away from Metro Manila – Caramoan Central School in Camarines Sur – to deliver joy to its 946 students.

The BOSS Riders distributed 48-inch TVs for every classroom of the school, along with school supplies, backpacks, and many more kits and essentials for the students. The teachers were also given gifts of appreciation. Meanwhile, Solaric turned over a 1.08 kWp Hybrid Solar Panel System with 2 units of 24V Lithium batteries to the school, with the system capable of powering the entire computer lab. The students and teachers were filled with joy to receive the bundle of gifts from both organizations.

 

Solaric’s Corporate Social Responsibility

Solaric President receiving gifts

Solaric President and CEO Mike De Guzman said, “When I was thinking about our Christmas CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activity, I thought, ‘ano pong magandang donation ang mabibigay ko sa ating mga kababayan’? Magbigay ng kuryente sa mga lugar na walang kuryente o maraming brownout.”

“Far-flung towns, especially those facing the warming Pacific, are subject to wilder weather, super typhoons and blackouts that last weeks or even months. Since ignorance grows where the lights darken, we decided to contribute our special talents and skills to energize this chosen public school with a Bawal Brownout computer lab and combine it with the multimedia endowment of the BOSS Riders that modernized the classrooms with 48″ flat-screen TVs and devices loaded with digital lesson plans,” he added.

So that is what the management and employees of Solaric Corp. delivered: a Bawal Brownout solar system. The 1.08 kWp hybrid solar PV system consisted of four solar panels, two lithium batteries, and an inverter. The solar solution now powers the computer lab of the school. A total of 946 students benefit directly from the Solaric Christmas donation.

 

Powering School Computer Labs

Caramoan Central School Principal Dr. Oscar Parola said, “Alam mo, ang dami daming dala ng grupo ninyo (referring to the BOSS Riders and Solaric personnel), tuwang tuwa yung mga bata. Pati mga teachers ang daming pasalubong. Nagpapasalamat talaga kami sa inyo!”

On November 28, 2019, upon the site visit and technical inspection of the Solaric team, the school offered a warm and gracious welcoming ceremony for the rooftop solar company. During the early morning flag ceremony, De Guzman gave a short inspiring message.

“How did we power a public school? We fastened 4 solar panels in our proven typhoon-proof fashion, installed a hybrid off-grid inverter and our two advanced research 10-year Lithium batteries. Our engineers designed a Solaric solution to provide enough juice to keep the laptops, tablets, and computers running in the computer lab during normal days and during times of crisis. The power solution has the capability to charge at least 400 cellphones or power banks when it is the only source of electrical power around. Yes, we can deliver power in the very darkest of situations. That is what Solaric is all about,” said De Guzman.

“Even if there are typhoons, you will still have power,” he enthused.

 

The Aftermath of Typhoon Tisoy

Aftermath of a typhoon on a school

Then, in the first week of December, Typhoon Tisoy struck and devastated Bicol. In the disaster’s aftermath a few days later, there was no electricity in several provinces in the region. In Caramoan, there was no power – people could not charge their phones, they could not communicate with relatives, they could not turn on the lights. The town was surrounded in darkness.

However, at the Caramoan Central School, there was power. People flocked to the school to charge their phones and call their families.

“Every child deserves to wake up to a special gift this Christmas. Thank you to the ongoing kindness and goodwill of all our clients, dealers, partners, advocates, and personnel, because it is through them that we are able to turn on the sun, each and every day, one rooftop at a time,” said Jade De Guzman, Vice President of Solaric.

“We are very much grateful for the donation of the solar panels with batteries and installation. When there was no power, the system could even power two aircons at one time! Solaric – the best! Maraming Salamat!” grinned Principal Dr. Parola.

That is the power of turning on the sun.

MYTH BUSTER ALERT: YOU DON’T NEED BATTERIES TO GO SOLAR

Two men shaking hands in front of a solar panel

The old way of doing solar and the 2020 way of doing solar

 

The never-ending question about batteries

A wall of solar batteries

Long, long ago, when solar was in its earlier days, most of the solar panel systems operated with batteries for purposes of storage. Through the years, solar has evolved. More recent technologies were developed. The Grid Tie Solar was born.

 

Grid Tie

Top view of a structure with solar panels

The grid tie is the most popular and most commonly installed solar panel system in the Philippines, but it is also the most commonly misunderstood. The name speaks for itself. Grid Tie means the solar system is “tied” to the grid. It works together, tied to each other, like partners. In a grid tie solar system, the solar panel system is interconnected with the electrical grid (Meralco).

 

What happens when you have a grid tie system

Houses with solar roofing

During the daytime when the sun is shining, the first priority power of the house will be solar. The house will get its power from the solar panels. If the power that the solar provides is still not enough, then that is the only time that power will be taken from the electrical grid. When there is no sun (such as night time), then the system uses electricity from the grid.

 

Reversing the situation

A hand holding up a lit lightbulb

When solar cannot provide enough power from the panels for the entire house, then the system gets the power from the grid. Now let’s say the situation was reversed. What if the solar produces so much power, more power than the house can consume? What happens to all the excess power? In such cases, if the home is registered for the Net Metering program of the utility company, then all that excess power can be “exported” or fed to the grid. What that means is all the excess power is “sold” to the utility company. With a grid tie system and with net metering, a house is likely to offset its nighttime power consumption with its daytime export. The result is a drastically reduced electric bill.

 

Going back to the myth

Extreme top shot of houses in a rural area with solar panels

The answer is a simple, straightforward, hard NO. Going solar does not mean you need to get batteries. You only need batteries if you want to “store” energy, or if there is a need to do energy storage. This is typically a necessity in areas where there is no grid power, or areas commonly referred to as power-starved areas. In such cases, then the Grid Tie option is not possible (because there is no grid to tie to), and therefore the battery solutions are more ideal.

MY MONTHLY ELECTRIC BILL IS 20K: SHOULD I GO SOLAR?

Close up of an electricity bill

 

What going solar really means

Shot of a home's roof with solar panels

Going solar is the new trend. It has become a lifestyle – one that has captivated Asia: go clean, green, safe, sustainable, and renewable. Solar panel systems can definitely reduce electric bills by 30% to 75%, increase the market value of your property, reduce your carbon footprint, and help protect the planet. The question, however, is: should you go solar?

 

Ask yourself the right questions

Going solar is not a simple initiative. There are many things to consider before making the decision. If you are uncertain about whether to go solar or not, here are the main questions to ask yourselves. We want to help you make the best decision.

 

1. Do you want to use the power of the sun?

The sun shining

The Philippines is a tropical Southeast Asian country. The average home in the Philippines receives an average of 4.5 hours of sunlight per day. This means that if you live in the Philippines, then you are certainly one of the very best candidates in the world for solar. The sun is a free, unlimited energy resource, and it is going to continue to shine for the next 5 billion years. The first question is: do you want to use the sun’s power? If yes, then proceed.

 

2. Do you want to reduce your bill?

This also comes with the fact that the Philippines is plagued with constantly increasing power rates. The average electricity price for homeowners is, to date, the second-highest in Asia. Each year, the power rates soar. The demand increases, the supply decreases, and the generation charges continue to climb. It is time to seriously ask yourself what your energy goals are. Why do you want to go solar? Is it because you want to reduce your monthly electric bills? If yes, then by how much do you want to reduce your monthly bills?

 

3. Do you want to eliminate your bill (or do you want a Zero Bill)?

Close up of electricity bills in its envelopes

If the answer to question #2 was yes, then it is time to examine further and ponder this question #3. There is a major difference between the two questions. You will have to decide which direction you want to take because your answer will determine the next steps. Once you’ve decided whether you simply want to reduce your bill or if you’ve decided you want to get rid of your bill altogether, then it is time to move on to question #4.

 

4. Are you willing to invest in a system that will give you an ROI of 5 years or less?

If you have a roof, you can go solar. If you want to reduce your bill, you can go solar. If you want to eliminate your bill, you can go solar. This question, though, is now about the investment. With any solar investment, the typical return on investment (ROI) is five years or less. This makes it a wise investment – not just financially, but environmentally as well. You have to be willing, ready and prepared to make that investment. The 5-year ROI does not even take into account the credits you may generate from exporting your excess power to the grid through the net metering program. With that setup, we’ve seen solar clients achieve ROI in 3 years. If you consume all the power that your system generates, you will still achieve ROI in 5 years or less. This makes the investment a win-win: economically profitable, payback guaranteed, and environmentally responsible. Most people say that when you go solar, the system pays for itself in the first five years. In the succeeding 20 years, the system pays you.

 

5. Do you want to protect the planet?

A hand holding the earth

Going solar used to simply be about being financially sensible and being practical. Now, however, it has become a serious advocacy about clean energy from the sun. If you install rooftop solar, your home will be a powerhouse that will combat greenhouse gas emissions. You will reduce your carbon footprint on planet earth. How? With solar, you would be less dependent on your utility company, which burns fossil fuels to produce electricity. If you solarize your home, then you will be a renewable energy source. This translates to the fact that you will be directly contributing to a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable world and future.

If you answered YES to all five questions above, then you are forward-thinking and embracing the energy reform decade. It also means that you are ready to go solar and it will most definitely be a worthwhile endeavor and investment for you.

SOLAR FOR BUSINESS OR SOLAR FOR HOME USE?

Flat lay of solar home plans with materials around it

 

The power of the sun is for everyone

 

Is there a difference between solar for business and solar for homes?

The roof of a car dealership with solar panels

There are residential solar projects, which are for homes. There are also commercial solar projects, which are for businesses. By comparison, both types of solar projects differ in terms of costs, size or scale, and renewable energy goals. Residential solar is typically installed by homeowners who are looking to reduce their monthly electricity expenses and generate significant money savings. On the other hand, commercial solar requires a major business decision and investment with a primary focus on the long-term financial and environmental impact.

 

How much does residential solar typically cost in the Philippines?

Top view of a house with solar roofing

There is no simple, uniform answer to this question because there really is no such thing as an average typical solar panel system. Solar systems are customized for every home or household. The size of the solar system will depend on a variety of factors such as roof size, power consumption, electricity expenses, sun exposure, roof type, and even budget. However, there is data that shows that the most commonly purchased solar panel system size in the Philippines is the 5kWp Grid Tie Solar. Let us examine this type of solar solution.

 

Let’s go 5kWp

A green roof with solar panels

If the homeowner were to choose the cheapest type of solar panels available in today’s market, then he would select the basic option, which would be the 270-watt (270W) polycrystalline solar panels. The homeowner would then opt for 20 pieces of the 270W solar modules, which would be equivalent to a solar system size of 5.4 kWp (kilowatt peak).

 

Savings and Return On Investment

Top of a gasoline station with solar panels

The average statistic per solar panel is an average monthly savings of Php400. With that in mind, 20 panels, or a 5kWp system, would give you savings of about Php8,000 each month. Now let’s break it down in terms of numbers and ROI. The system cost of a 5.4kWp is about Php380,000. If monthly savings is Php8,000, then ROI will be achieved in four years.

“It’s 2020 and we are now on the brink of a renewable decade. Solar tech is affordable and financially feasible. The demand is high. Everyone is getting on board. It is not just about being a “wise investment” choice – it’s also about being a “combat climate change” choice. This decade isn’t about just savings and ROI anymore. It’s about carbon footprint and the environmental impact and climate change. In essence, solar isn’t about us and efficiency anymore. It’s about our planet’s future,” said Jade De Guzman, the Vice President of Solaric, the recognized leader in the solar rooftop in the Philippines.

TURNING ON THE SUN FOR PTT

Close up of a hand putting gas in their car

What happens when you add Solaric and gasoline?

 

The world has to go into energy transition as it is the new economic fact and survival. Climate change is already our new reality and mankind has to take steps to mitigate climate change and global warming. When oil companies start putting in large amounts of Solar and even question outdated regulation that limits the amount of renewable energy, it is clearly telling of our times now – what the future brings and the challenges that we face to adapt to the new world.

The oil and gas industry has one of the most stringent safety and workflow standards in any workplace. They also employ the smartest engineers who know energy output, per kWh costs, project safety, and a number of quantifiable and qualitative goals that have to be achieved for seamless project implementation.

 

Solaric and PTT

We thank PTT for choosing us to undertake their pioneer project in combining #Solar to their gas stations to improve their carbon footprint and lower costs of operations. This powers their Barista training school and skills center in EDSA. Gas pumps and espresso machines are surprisingly power-hungry appliances.

PTT deployed a 15.6kWp solution that can yield about 20MWh of energy a year or roughly P220k in savings by sourcing a large amount of power from the sun, versus predominantly grid-bought coal energy. Simple fact: A single solar panel has the power potential to knock off P400 a month from your electric bill.

In the very near future, gas stations will slowly be adapting to Electric Vehicle charging stations. PTT decided to embrace the future and start the process of transformation to a greener economy and energy solution space.

HOW MANY SOLAR PANELS ARE NEEDED TO RUN A HOUSE?

The decision to put solar on the rooftop

Some people take months to decide. Some people take years. It is, after all, a major decision when you have to finally consider your previously bare roof to be adorned with a string of blue or black solar panels. This is particularly true if you are especially concerned with the aesthetics of your home or your roof and its visibility from the road. It is, however, a matter of perspective. Some people view a bare roof as beautiful. Others, however, regard a solarized roof as the epitome of beauty. To each his own.

 

What is the essence of its power?

Every panel can generate a certain number of watts per hour from the rays of the sun. Every day, here in the Philippines, we average at least 4.5 hours of sunshine. With one 400-watt solar panel, we can harvest at least 1.8 kW of power each day. Imagine 10 panels. Imagine 50 panels. What does this translate to? It means that during the day, our household appliances can be directly powered by electricity generated by these solar panels, using energy harvested from the sun. It means that our roof, in the past decades, was just an adorning structure that sheltered us from heat and rain. Now, we have learned to make our rooftops more beneficial for us, by converting it into a quiet small power plant for a few hours each day, whenever the sun is out. This translates to savings each day, each month. In other words, installing an ideal sized rooftop solar system for your home will result in a 30% to 70% reduction in your monthly electric bill.

 

But wait, there’s more

Why is the monthly electric bill reduction a wide range between 30% to 70%? There are several factors that come into play: solar panel system size, type and brand of panels, roof tilt or angle, sun exposure, and net metering if the system is a grid-tie system, among other factors. With net metering, all excess power harvested during the day is exported to the grid in exchange for credits. This results in a lower monthly bill.

“2019 prices are already cheaper. Let’s see what 2020 will bring. At the moment, the typical 5.4 kWp grid-tie solar system costs about P380,000 – using polycrystalline panels. At this rate, going solar is now affordable. Some people think it’s too big a commitment, but I think it’s our perspective that needs to change. Instead of viewing it as an expense, maybe we need to view it as an investment,” emphasizes Jade De Guzman, Vice President of Solaric Corp.

Year 2019 is about to close and we are on the verge of welcoming yet another decade. Electricity is highly in demand and rates are constantly increasing. In recent years, the global installed capacity of solar PV has increased more than seven-fold. This surge will continue, especially now with the decrease in rates of solar panels.

 

Bits on climate change

The last decade has ushered in the era of renewable energy, especially for the Philippines. Homes and businesses all over the archipelago are now transitioning away from the traditional fossil-fueled electricity grid, towards a cleaner, safer, greener, and more sustainable economy and future. This now comes at a time when carbon emission reduction targets are in place as the entire world now clamors to mitigate climate change. People are now referring to this era as energy reform.

 

So now there’s solar
