Need to explore options
Pichon and Athena Garcia were married in 2013. When they had their baby boy Thoren, major changes had to be made. Pichon and Athena had to spend most of their time at home. As a baby, Thoren had a lot of rashes and allergies. The doctors prohibited him from being out in the sun for a long period of time. When he was at home, he had to be inside an airconditioned room. Technically, the aircon in the house had to be on all day without having a solar system in the Philippines.
Deciding to invest
This happened at a time when Pichon and Athena just finished construction of their home. They had just started their family. They had a baby boy. “I thought having the aircon on all the time was something really expensive. I didn’t know if we could afford it,” said Athena.
They decided to consider installing solar. They were uncertain if it was something they could afford in the long run, but they decided to explore the solar alternative.
What Solaric offered
“Solaric checked our (electric) bill. They offered tailor-fit solutions specific to our needs. They patterned the number of panels they would install based on our monthly power consumption,” Pichon explained.
Solaric installed an off grid solar power system on the roof of the Garcia home, with six solar panels.
Benefits of solar
The results were amazing. The aircon runs all day now for Thoren. The household runs appliances all throughout the day every day without a shred of guilt.
“I can turn on the power anytime I want. We don’t have to worry about electricity!” exclaimed Athena, while playfully cuddling Thoren.
Something to talk about
“Our friends are envious. On average, they spend about 20 to 30 thousand a month on electric bills. Then they get shocked when they find out our bill is only 5 thousand a month. They can’t seem to believe it. What? How?!” Pichon shares with us in animated fashion.
“And I tell them…we have Solaric,” Pichon adds, while pointing upward to the roof of their house.
“We advocate renewable energy of course. We love the fact that we save money and we save the environment too. That’s win-win all the way!” Athena smiles.
And that is the Garcia family secret – they turned on the sun. So why don’t you do it too?
