In an exclusive, gated, private neighborhood of a quiet subdivision in the South, stands a majestic, beautiful, 500 square meter, 3-bedroom contemporary Filipino-style solar home. Solaric can absolutely deliver the Zero Bill promise. Just ask Gerry, another satisfied Solaric client.
The choice to go solar
In 2017, Gerry decided to install solar panels at home. He approached Solaric and they conducted a site inspection. His daily household appliances included a washing machine, dryer, two refrigerators, two water pumps, three television sets, 11 air conditioners, and a home theater. His electric bill amounted to an average of 10 to 11 thousand pesos each month. Solaric offered an array of solar options that would give him optimum power at the lowest cost. Gerry selected efficiency and long-term financial feasibility by having 40 rooftop solar panels installed (12 kilowatts).
The reward of going solar
A couple months after installing solar, Gerry received his first Zero Bill (total amount due of Php0.00 in his monthly electric bill).
“The moment the Net Metering kicked in, I got a Zero Bill. Then, all succeeding months were all zero bills!” exclaimed Gerry, as he showed us his stack of zero bills accumulated the past year.
All about the pogi points
When asked to discuss the profitability of his solar power system, Gerry paused for a moment’s reflection. “Yes, I’m able to save 10 to 11 thousand a month. But we don’t talk about ROI (return on investment) in these cases. Anong ROI in buying an expensive car? Pogi points!” Gerry laughs in amusement. “It’s really about utilizing whatever is renewable, and solar was the only thing that was feasible. I’ve been planning on installing solar even before the house was constructed.”
Zeroing in on the zero bill
Gerry brings the zero bill phenomenon unders a different light. “What does the zero bill mean to me? Sure, one part of it is about savings – I have a monthly electric bill that says zero. It makes everyone in the house scream with happiness. On the other hand, my investment pay-off is renewable energy. Sustainability. I care about the environment and the planet. This is my contribution to saving our future. That is what makes solar worth it!”
