Alternative energy i.e Solar power is a great alternative source for 24hours uninterrupted power supply. Ever wonder why and how? Let’s look at 9 great reasons to use solar power anywhere in Nigeria.
- Its Renewable– Solar is a renewable energy source. The sun is always present and even the cloudiest days, there is a bit of isolation available for the solar panels to soak up easily.
- Its Available Anywhere– Solar can be installed anywhere, even when what it is powering is in the shade. No matter what the circumstance, if there is a sunny spot nearby the solar can be installed to power home and business
- Its Durable– Solar power systems is works for years, if well installed, it can work for over 25years, it does not have any moving part, usually fixed in a safe place where it cannot not be damaged.
- Eco-Friendly– No harmful gases come from a solar panel.
- Cost Savings– Solar provides cost savings by not having to pay for monthly electricity bills, especially since electric costs continue to rise where the cost of solar continues to fall. Cost savings also can be calculated by eliminating the need for constant repairs & maintenance of generator parts.
- Easy Installation– Solar panels are easy to install, typically only needing a few bolts to hold them secure and some basic wiring, also bearing in mind the little space beneath panels in order for panels not to rest directly on roof. Solar lighting systems provide the solar power system at the top of the pole for most installation configurations, leaving all important electrical material right under the space provided under the panels
- Low Voltage– Solar utilizes lower voltage, typically 12 or 24 Volts DC, which means safer usage and installation.
- Energy Savings– Solar utilizes lower powered items such as LED bulbs, lower powered electronics, etc. that do not use as much power as standard grid systems.
- Battery Backup– Most solar systems today utilize a battery bank backup that allows for three plus days storage of the power needed to keep the system running. That way, if the sun goes out, you will still have power for a couple of days. however, the good news is, “the sun will always shine”
