Five Reasons why Solar is the Best Renewable Energy Choice for the Philippines

Metro Manila, Philippines - Harnessing solar energy has been around for a few decades now, but has only begun a strong emergence in the Philippine market over the last few years. Our German engineers at PHILERGY German Solar has initially wondered why solar is not a common preference in the country, so we are here to lay out the points why solar is the best renewable energy choice for the Philippines:

  1. Takes advantage of our tropical climate - Situated slightly above the equator, our geographical location grants us 12 daylight hours per day. Most Filipinos would of course lament the sun’s heat beating down on us almost every day, but this also means a longer chance for your solar energy system to produce clean energy for your home or business.

  2. Lessens dependence on depleting fossil fuel resources - Our country depends heavily on imported dirty energy from coal and fossil fuels which are predicted to run out in a mere few decades. Getting your own solar energy system is one way to decrease dependence on the increasing and volatile prices of fossil fuels.

  3. Cuts electric bill costs through net metering - We are very lucky to have net-metering for renewable energies here in the Philippines. Net metering allows homes and businesses with grid-tied solar systems to automatically sell excess solar energy back to the distribution utility - for example, Meralco - in exchange for peso credits on your electric bill instead of storing it using a battery. The credits are then deducted from your bill, possibly saving you thousands every month. (Read more about net metering here!)

  4. Makes use of roof space - Our roofs already play a great role of keeping the elements off of our heads, but we can’t deny that all that space is wasted. Every day it shields us from the sun, but why not put it to better use? Just one square meter can harvest up to 5 kWh per day, which results in a 60PHP savings - that’s 1,800PHP a month!

  5. Creates a positive impact for our environment - The Philippine ecosystem is very biodiverse and is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change. Create a positive impact through your solar energy system - one solar panel can neutralize carbon dioxide emissions of up to 42 cars that drive five kilometers every day. And the carbon dioxide neutralized by five solar panels is equivalent to planting 100,000 trees every year!

And for over eight years now, we have continuously seen high efficiency from our 100% German solar systems performing under the unwavering Philippine sun. Send us a message through any of the channels below and help us change the renewable energy landscape in the Philippines!
