Today, more than ever, is the time to think of ways to be "energy empowered" by being less dependent from the grid or to pollutive, expensive diesel generators. Because of the steadily falling costs of solar power equipment and the short amount of time needed to complete such installations, solar PV systems are increasingly becoming popular with households, businesses, and industries around the world. Whether for businesses or households, PSPA encourages you to study the tremendous potential of using rooftops, car parks, and idle open spaces for generating solar power --- which can lead to electricity bill savings.

 

Solar power solutions are also now made easier to acquire, with more and more solar kits becoming available in the local market. These kits can readily be used in homes and commercial establishments in major urban locations to mitigate the rising cost of electricity and to reduce operating expenses. According to a primer published by the GIZ, A typical kit can displace 4-5 kW of electricity a day, translating to a savings of at least 30 percent of monthly power bills. While the cost of a 1-kW grid-tied system amounting to about 200,000 pesos appears expensive today, the electricity offsets for seven years allow full recovery of the solar system. On the 8th year, savings generated from the 1-kW system provides additional money in the pocket of the consumers. By the beginning of the 9th year up to the 25th year, when the lifespan of a solar kit is fully expended, solar electricity provides economic relief.
