You may well have noticed that solar panels have appeared more and more on roof of many homes and businesses in Nigeria. In fact, I see that several new solar panels are being installed and commissioned by AWPS Renewable Energy Ltd, Nigeria’s #1 provider of premium quality solar power.
So how can we explain this sudden increase in demand? You may think this reflects the fact that people in Nigeria have more of an interest in the environment and seeking to reduce its consumption of coal, gas and oil to minimize overhead. It is true that there is this growing desire to reduce the cost of running on fossil fuel.
Like so many things in life, it soon becomes apparent that the first explanation is rather simplistic. Surely, we can say that environmental issues do not attract a lot of coverage these days. In fact, a variety of topics being discussed on television and in newspapers.
What is clear is that there is more awareness of environmental issues and can also increase the levels of concern. In some cases, people can think about how much they can save first if they decide to go solar.
But many experts also suggest that people tend to act more quickly, if they have some kind of financial incentive to do so. In other words, we can see a financial gain as a motivator to decide, therefore the demand is increasing daily. With solar energy, you will save over 80% on fuel costs. Maintenance of solar power is also minimal.
This is certainly something that many people using solar energy or in the field of renewable energy seem to agree. Even customers have confirmed solar power systems to be more cost-effective.
Undoubtedly, this explains the presence of more and more solar panels in Nigeria. People are encouraged to install, with the hope that they will save money over time.
If you had planned to install solar panels in the past, then it is quite possible you have been thinking about the high costs were involved. It may have been nice to think that could help you reduce what you currently spend to run a generator monthly. Solar improves the environment, its safe and noiseless.
This reflection has been modified by the realization that the installation of the solar panel should not be considered as an expense. Instead, you can consider an investment that will pay off over time.
This leads us to see that solar energy is not only an option for those who are concerned about the future of the planet. It is realistic for those who are tired of suffering in darkness, those who wish to have electricity 24/7 while reducing 80% on fuel costs. Incase you have not been told, “the cost of running a generator for 6hours is the cost of running on solar for 24hours”
