Making the Right Choice:
Small Solar Panel System vs. Big Solar Panel System
The demand is unbelievable
Solar is in demand in today’s era of power generation. The Philippines, a tropical country geographically situated in the heart of Southeast Asia, has enormous potential for renewable energy, specifically solar. Filipinos are driving the green agenda forward.
In 2011, solar energy produced one-tenth of the global energy demand. Solar was becoming popular fast at the time. People all over the world were beginning to understand that the sun’s energy can be harnessed, using solar panels that can be affixed on the rooftop of houses or buildings. Soon enough, residential and commercial establishments started harvesting the sun’s power, thereby experiencing the trade-off when they noticed the 50% to 70% decrease in their monthly electric bills.
In 2014, the most influential companies in the world joined forces and committed themselves to 100% renewable power through the establishment of RE100. The collaboration was a global initiative that united more than a hundred influential organizations. Among these are Microsoft, Google, and Coca Cola. Since then, they have been working hand in hand in accelerating the growth of RE to transition us to a healthier and more sustainable world and future.
“In the Philippines, approximately 20 million people are in locations which lack constant and consistent power supply. About 12 million Filipinos are in power-starved areas, which have zero power supply. The demand is clearly there. Solar is not just an option – it’s a necessity,” emphasized Mike De Guzman, President of Solaric Corp.
The question is: does solar make sense?
It’s a perennial question. People talk about a safe, clean, healthy, and sustainable future. They talk about reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero. They talk about 2050 being a low-carbon-footprint era with efficient green facilities, e-vehicles, and solar homes. Imagine that as the destiny of the planet. The solar trend now is all about being a #ZeroBill home. Solar energy has definitely taken the lead in renewable energy in the Philippines, plus it makes financial and economic sense.
The next question is: does size matter?
The goal is free electricity, unli-electricity during daytime, or cheap electricity. Either way, people indulge when the deal is good. In any case, size matters – on the topic of solar – because size is directly related to the harvest which is directly related to the savings. With a solar system, the homeowner can be a consumer and producer of power at the same time. That means you don’t just use the power, you produce it too. When you produce more than what you need, you can get credits for the excess power that your system generates. Now with a small system, you will not generate more power than you can consume. With a big system, you can definitely generate more power than you can consume. With a big system, your surplus power goes to the grid and can be used by someone else, and you get credits for it. This translates to a lower monthly bill. That means you enjoy the benefits of your solar. So, does size matter? You tell us.
A large solar power system makes more sense financially and environmentally for some homeowners. Not only does an enormous solar system increase property value, it also greatly reduces the carbon footprint and contributes to a cleaner planet.
Breaking it down in simple terms
It is pretty straightforward and simple. Put plenty of solar panels on your roof and generate enough power. Then, export this power to the electric company through the Net Metering Program. In doing this, you get paid for the electricity that you will export. The #ZeroBill phenomenon is actually a benefit from being a consumer and provider.
