The Sun is the primary source of energy and in fact all other forms of energy available to man including fossil fuel could be traced to it. When it comes to harnessing the energy from the sun to generate power, three striking facts makes the sun stand out from other sources. The first stand out fact about solar energy is that it is so environmentally friendly, in addition, simple technology is required to convert solar energy into electric power and probably the most interesting stand out fact to many is that it is less cost intensive or financially demanding compared to other sources. With all of these obvious advantages of solar energy in mind, you will ultimately explore this rare yet comparatively so cheap source of energy to your advantage/ whether you are looking to save money on electric bills or protect the environment, Sunbug Solar is a professional in commercial solar power with many years of experience.
Return on Investment:
One might almost consider installing a commercial solar energy system a white elephant project. However, looking well beyond its cost to the chains of value and myriad of return on investment streams it create makes it worthwhile. To begin with, installing a solar energy system may qualify you for government rebates, especially where one runs an industry with a high daily power consumption rate. Income could also be generated from the excess energy stored by large solar arrays which could be transmitted into the community grid for public consumption. Usually, the local utility authority is responsible for paying providers of such extra energy. One of the most rewarding returns of owning a solar power plant is rising to the enviable status of an alternative power provider which is as gratifying as eliminating dependence on volatile utilities.
Unlike other sources of energy with mechanical power conversion or generation plants, commercial solar power systems are stable and dependable. Solar power systems have the hallmark of reliability with maintenance periods ranging from 25 to 40 years. Solar electric systems are suitable for turnkey commercial projects as they require little maintenance.
The cost that could be saved every year on energy bills run into thousands of dollars if solar energy is embraced as an alternative source of power. Solar panels in addition to generating free, environmentally friendly electricity to be used onsite, lowers your energy demand from the grid during the day.
If everyone would take up the solar energy project no matter the scale, the aggregate effect would be felt in form conserving other natural resources which have hitherto being hugely exploited thereby saving the already overly torn and exhausted mother earth from imminent danger.
Conflict over ownership right of energy sources have been the root cause of several wars. We can avoid them if we choose to accept that we are all blessed with alternative sources of energy we can harness. We should all be conscious of the fact that future generations have an equal right to mother earth.
