Why the buzz on solar

In the Philippines, there are 309 houses under construction every single day, which is a total of 113,097 homes under construction in 2016, based on data from the Philippine Statistics Authority. Imagine if these newly constructed homes had the potential to produce as much energy as they would consume! Think energy-efficient and technology-focused. Zero in on reduced costs. The result: a safe, healthy, clean, renewable and sustainable future in the Philippines. Solar systems are the key to this.

 

Electric bills in the Philippines

Filipinos are constantly facing the challenge of rising utility bills. Most of the time, we have to sacrifice comfort for the sake of settling the payment on that electric bill. The solution is to work around the problem. Instead of just consuming power like most people, take one step further. Don’t just consume power – produce it as well. How is this done? Rooftop solar. Depending on the roof, design, energy consumption needs, daytime power usage, sun exposure, and a variety of other factors, a solar panel system could be installed and this would produce all the electricity needed for the home or building. What happens then? That house or building would reduce the carbon footprint and make a world a cleaner and healthier planet to live in.

 

What about the rest of the world?

In the United States, California has mandated that by 2020, all homes and low-rise buildings under construction must install rooftop solar. Although that is the first time that a state has required such, similar laws exist in various cities in the United States that involve renewable energy, in this day and age of climate change. According to the Net-Zero Energy Coalition, the United States has 12,000 Net-Zero single family and multi-family homes, which are figures based on the average annual new home constructions in the state of California. In 2017, the U.S. Department of Energy estimated about 39 percent of the total energy consumed in the country was in the residential and commercial sectors. A majority of the energy was produced by fossil fuels like coal, petroleum and natural gas. Now if solar panels are installed, then there would be more energy-efficient homes, structures, and facilities.

So what do we do with our reality since the Philippines has one of the highest rates of electricity per kilowatt-hour in Asia? Many Filipino homes are dependent on electricity to power their aircon and fans so that they can endure the hot temperatures of the day’s summer heat. This then is the main reason why energy efficiency is becoming an important focus and priority to keep in mind when buying or building a new house or home in the Philippines. Solar systems have the potential to reduce your power bill significantly.
