A Zero electricity bill

#ECQ #Lockdown

Did you get your Electric Bill? Are you energy prepared?

We knew deep down that nature would serve us a notice on how bad we have been – but never in our wildest imagination did we envision a world that would slow down and be placed under global detention.

In Metro Manila, dealing with the ECQ is also like experiencing a BBQ. We are plagued with a crippling heatwave, need air conditioning to simply survive, and lately, cursed with the electric bill that came in the mail.


Quarantine Electric Bill

For many of us, the Electric Bill we received was two months of “average” consumption lumped into one. It was the highest electric bill we ever saw in our natural lives – and it’s not even over. Next month, they are probably going to read the meter and by that time, they will register the true cost of powering your home during this 24/7 pandemic lockdown and it most certainly won’t be “average”.

It is not a good position to be a utility or a consumer. We both got hit hard with the hard stop of all non-essential commercial activity, and they could not send in their meter readers out of an abundance of safety. Many thanks for their graciousness for a 4-month leeway to settle our bills. What we learned from this ECQ is that our homes are our castles, our refuge from an uncertain world, the last defense against a global pandemic. The takeaway is simple: preparation is key to comfort and survival.


Why You Should Be A Prepper

The majority of #Solaric customers are Preppers. I don’t mean by hoarders of toilet paper or face masks, but as committed and deliberate citizens who plan for emergencies and contingencies, and act responsibly and decisively. They have been preparing for a time when climate change becomes too big to ignore, or preparing for a time when ever-rising electric bills would truly dent the home budget. They were mocked by the now envious neighbors for not taking a vacation and investing in solar instead. They were derided by the flashy Tito with the new SUV, who chided them that 4 years to get ROI is too long. As vacation plans went asunder, and the fancy SUV collected dust, it is now those same Preppers who are eating popcorn while watching Netflix in air-conditioned rooms – comfortable and contented.

Fortunately for the Preppers, their investment in Solaric Rooftop PV Systems has paid big dividends throughout this ECQ. As the world is frozen with fear from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Preppers have been keeping their families safe in lockdown using their electrical appliances and air conditioners longer and harder than ever before. When the electric bill finally comes, the common reaction of the Prepper will be, “Yan lang?” No amount of bleach can wipe away their smile and definitely no ayuda needed for these folks.


#ZeroBill During The Quarantine

An electricity bill with surplus energy

Then there are some who will receive their usual legendary #ZeroBill. Yes, even during this unplanned onslaught of a global disaster and the massive power consumption, the bill will still be a Zero. Why? Because there are a few expert Prosumers: producers who also consume. They indulged in long term investments in solar. They filled their entire roof with solar for max capacity. They are the ones who have homes that are Socially Responsible AND Environmentally Aware. At Solaric, generate this new hybrid type of homeowner: one that generates their own clean energy for consumption, and shares the excess/surplus energy to neighbors – because the truth is, even our energy-starved grid operators need a boost when the electricity lines are overwhelmed.

Now is the time to reflect on the consequences of our actions. Now is the time to understand that we are merely temporary inhabitants of this planet. Now is the time to learn that we must improve ourselves and our actions, for the sake of future generations.
