DWIZ 882 is a commercial news talk radio station serving the Mega Manila market. The interview with Solaric President and CEO Mike De Guzman was aired live at On The Go, with Gani Oro.
At 5:00 PM on October 23, 2019, Solaric Corp. President and CEO Mike De Guzman was invited as a live studio guest on DWIZ 882 – On The Go to tackle and explain solar power energy. Although more and more Filipinos are now going solar, what are the existing barriers that are preventing everyone from going solar? What are the reasons that not every single Filipino is going solar? Does everyone really understand solar power and its implications and benefits?
What is Solaric?
Solaric Corp. is a solar company that installs solar for ordinary houses, commercial buildings, and power plants. Their focus is to provide clean sustainable energy systems that are economically sensible and environmentally sound. We select and build our systems that are affordable and that provide the best value to our clients. If our systems do not save you money on your energy bill, it has little value for our clients. Our aim is to reduce your power bill by using proven PV technology.
“For example, the Solaric office is 120% renewable – we don’t have an electric bill. We run on 100% solar,” says De Guzman.
Teaching the Science
“You can’t just slap solar panels on the roof – there’s a science behind it,” he adds. Since the inception of Solaric in 2013, they have engaged Filipinos nationwide in their industry-renowned weekend course dubbed SOLAR101 and SOLAR202. Solar101 is a semi-technical course that allows a layperson or engineer to understand the practical aspects of solar systems and how it can economically decrease electricity bills, replace diesel generation, and most importantly, educate the average consumer on what type of solar system to install in a given facility (home, business, farm, factory, warehouse, etc.) using a no-nonsense non-biased approach. Every chapter and module content of this class is based on actual experiences gathered in executing solar projects in the Philippines. Quality fundamentals and techniques are shared in efforts of helping the nation achieve its renewable energy goals. Solar202, on the other hand, is a course that teaches the average individual how to install a solar panel system. Students get their hands dirty and learn basic solar planning, design, and installation. To date, Solaric has successfully trained over 5,000 individuals on solar.
Advantages and Disadvantages
Solar power is energy harvested from the sun that is converted into electrical energy. Solar is clean, safe, unlimited, sustainable – and the most abundant renewable source of energy available today. The Philippines, being a tropical country, has a long summer season and some of the richest solar resources in the world. Going solar results in a reduced carbon footprint and reduced utility expenses (by 30% to 100%). Additionally, rooftop solar has very low maintenance costs.
Solar for a Church
One example cited during the interview was the solar power system installed on a church in Balanga, Bataan. Despite the church being built during the Spanish era, the 20 solar panels were still installed and proved beneficial and effective as the power source that runs the church office’s daytime operations. Today, the solar system on the church is what powers the office’s 2hp aircon during the day.
