Why Should You Go Solar?
Keeping up with latest trends to go green and live environmentally-friendly lifestyles, many homeowners, in recent years, have opted to install solar systems in their home to generate the energy they require for the appliances they use everyday.
Improving the environment is perhaps the most common reason for making the switch to solar energy. But did you know that there are many more reasons that compel homeowners to do so? Why are people going Solar, and why should you? In this post, we take a look at the Top 5 reasons to go Solar.
REASON #1: SAVE THE EARTH
A large number of home appliances and devices, from charging cables to air-conditioners, require varying amounts of electricity to function. Much of the energy that we need to go about our daily lives is dependent on the burning of fossil fuels, which contributes to the depletion of the ozone layer, and hence results in global warming. The effects of the ever-increasing rate of global warming are already thoroughly felt worldwide, with prime examples such as Australia's raging bushfires and hotter weather here in Singapore. Unlike conventional energy, solar energy does not harm the environment at all. The sun is an unlimited source of energy, so why not make full use of it?
REASON #2: SAVE MONEY AND EARN MONEY AT THE SAME TIME
A solar system will reduce the amount of electricity you use per month, and hence lower your monthly electricity bills. This is because you would be using be using the solar energy generated from your solar panels to power your appliances and devices during the day time, and therefore reduce energy from consumed from the national grid. Furthermore, you can sell any excess energy generated by your solar system back to the national grid to turn a profit. As your solar system operates fully during the daytime, depending on your solar system capacity, you might generate more energy than you can consume.
REASON #3: GUARD YOURSELF AGAINST RISING ELECTRICITY PRICES
For the period from Jan 1 to March 31 this year, electricity tariffs have increased 0.81 cents per kilowatt hour (kwh) compared with the previous quarter. This is due to rising fuel costs. One of the few ways to be less affected by these rising electricity prices is to install a solar system. The upfront cost for a solar system remains constant, but you enjoy its benefits for the next 25 years or potentially longer!
REASON #4: SOLAR SYSTEMS CAN LAST FOR OVER 25 YEARS
Yes. That's the amount of time that you can use your solar system for. At SolarPVExchange, the latest solar PV technology that we harness ensures that your solar PV system is durable, reliable and above all, efficient, so you can reap the benefits of going Solar for a long time. This makes installing a solar PV system a worthwhile investment.
REASON #5: SOLAR POWER IS THE FUTURE
Environment activist Greta Thunberg's #FridaysforFuture has taken the world by a storm, compelling millions of equally concerned individuals around the world to strike weekly and put pressure on governments to curtail policies that would harm the environment. While Singapore has not had a climate strike of that magnitude, we did host the first Singapore Climate Rally in September last year, after organisers took inspiration from then 16-year old Thunberg. According to a Straits Times report, Singapore is also on its way to making its physical and transport infrastructure more green, and is aiming for 80% of buildings in Singapore to have energy-saving features by 2030. Change is coming, and coming soon. And what better time to arm yourself with knowledge and experience of solar power than now?
