How solar power can help businesses remain competitive



While the government and private sector look for viable short- and long-term solutions to the country’s steep electricity cost, the second-highest in Asia due mainly to generation charges, businesses and even homes can take alternative paths to remain competitive.

A feasible option, considered more efficient and effective and is now readily available, is solar power technology or using photovoltaic panels or PVs—a system that collects energy from the sun to generate electricity and power homes or offices.

 

Environment-friendly option

Solar energy reduces burning of fossil fuel to generate electricity, subsequently limiting pollutants and carbon dioxide that go to the atmosphere. Depending on the system, a complete home or office setup can power office equipment and appliances such as air-conditioning units and some electrical outlets.

Typically installed on rooftops, solar panels collect DC power and send it to an inverter that converts it into AC (alternating current) power. The AC power goes from the inverter to the electrical panel, where it now becomes ready to use. Once the solar system produces more power than needed, the meter actually spins backwards.

Office buildings or homes remain connected to the utility grid so they can get as much power as they need outside of what the solar system produces.

Whether for an office or home, the solar system you need must be customized for maximum performance and bring about the best cost and energy savings as well.

Solar power provider Green Heat (GH) designs, installs, and maintains solar PV systems. With the right technology, expertise, and experience for solar power generation, Green Heat was tapped to do large-scale projects such as the ADB solar power plant, rural electrification project of the government, and private installations.

 

Low maintenance

Green Heat uses silicon-powered technology, considered the world’s most dependable solar technology. With over 40 years of demonstrated field performance, silicon modules have continued to outlast and outperform other solar technologies.

Since roofs have limited space for solar modules, Green Heat’s panels have higher module efficiencies. This means each panel works better in absorbing energy. Moreover, GH’s panels have “enhanced weak light performance,” where the solar glass ensures that the panels perform well under real world, low light conditions.

GH’s panels are also low-maintenance since they have “self-cleaning” technology where a special layer in the high-quality solar glass of the modules causes water to run off more quickly, enabling the glass to clean itself of dust and dirt.

Complete, efficient design

Solar PV panels are part of an entire system. As they say, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.” In solar PV technology, the rest of the system has to be equally efficient and reliable; otherwise, the best panels will not give you the ideal return of investment.

Green Heat provides clients a complete assessment of their solar energy requirements during the proposal stage that cover system design and cost. Once approved by the client, GH executes the design plan and turns over the system after a series of tests. With a one-year after-sales warranty, clients can completely rely on their solar PV setup.

Harnessing solar energy can go a long way in saving you money and help sustain a cleaner environment. To learn more about solar PV technology, visit www.greenheat-intl.com.

    Yan ang resulta ng privatization ng mga power plant para lang gumanda ang GRP ng Pinas, paano na ang susunod na Administration kong lahat ng power plant ng Pinas ay private na at walang magtayo ng industries dahil sa taas ng power rate saan kya kukuha ng paraan ang gobyerno para gumanda ang GRP?

    where can we buy cheap PV panels and installation kit?

      Good question, with no clear answer. 

      Those who promote solar power, as a “cheap” and alternative source of energy are selling their wares with prices reaching the gates of heaven.another thing, Solar is only good for small businesses.
