Pros and Cons of Solar Energy in the Philippines | PHILERGY German Solar

PHILERGY German Solar for homes and businesses - High quality installer for solar power systems and top rated panel packages for residential, commercial and industrial roofs in the Philippines

Metro Manila, Philippines While it has been previously widely criticised for being expensive or inefficient, solar energy has now proved to be extremely beneficial - not only for the environment but also for the economy. Whether building a new home or considering options for a business, solar is a revolutionary energy solution for property owners of any type, but like any energy decision, choosing to go solar has various advantages and disadvantages you should keep in mind.



  1. Constantly Advancing and Proven Technology. Having had its start as early as the 1800s, solar technology has undergone extensive research and refinement resulting in ever increasing efficiencies. At PHILERGY German Solar, our components (not just the panels) are of the highest quality made in Germany combined with expert German engineers and installers with years of experience, ensuring that your solar energy system can continue harvesting clean, renewable energy for the years to come.

  2. No Maintenance Costs. Being pieces of technology, solar energy systems would seem to require regular and rigorous maintenance. On the contrary, solar energy systems have very few moving parts and generally do not require a great deal of maintenance to function reliably. Our reliable 100% German Solar systems work fully automatic once installed and do not require extensive maintenance.

  3. Reduces Electricity Bill. A solar energy system can harness free solar energy and power our homes during the day. Solar panels capture light (not heat) from the sun which is then converted to usable energy for our appliances. And in our tropical climate, we receive up to 12 hours of uninterrupted sun each day! Any excess solar energy generated will be sold back to the utility, earning you credits on your bill that can lower your bill further through net metering.


  1. High Upfront Cost. The large upfront cost is one of the biggest drawbacks of solar energy systems for some Filipinos. The good news is, PHILERGY offers flexible financing options with no collateral and no additional fees. You can now also get your own German Solar system on an installment basis of up to 12 months 0% interest with BPI, HSBC, Chinabank, and Citibank credit cards. Straight payments also available for all Visa, Mastercard, JCB, and Unionpay cards - as well as Alipay and WeChat Pay.

  2. Solar panels require space. Depending on your building's electricity requirements, the number of panels to install does require some open, unshaded space. Luckily, PHILERGY can cater to most roof cover materials utilized here in the Philippines. And installing on the roof makes use of the otherwise wasted space that is almost always available on top of every building.

  3. Weather-dependent. Being powered by the sun, every solar energy system is highly efficient on bright sunny days - always in abundance in our tropical country. Electricity generation is reduced during rainy days, but don't worry - PHILERGY German Solar panels are highly efficient and the most light sensitive in the solar industry with optimized low-light performance that ensures maximized energy production.

Every investment has its pros and cons but overall, a 100% German Solar system provide major benefits to homeowners and business-owners alike through energy cost savings and ecological benefits to clean, renewable energy.
