Metro Manila, Philippines – A call for a more extensive adoption of rooftop-installed solar energy systems to counter the impending energy crisis was made by the Philippine Solar and Storage Energy Alliance (PSSEA).
In a statement last month, PSSEA is urging the Philippine government to deploy solar panels on roofs of households and commercial establishments. The alliance said that encouraging homes, offices, and factories to install solar on their roofs would accelerate the generation of clean energy.
“As an example, residences consumed 34.9 million MWh in 2021. If government targets solar rooftop in five percent of households, a potential of 673 MW can come online within 12 months,” the PSSEA said, “This will provide relief to the grid and is certainly an immediate solution compared to the development of utility scale solar which takes three years to deploy.”
To accelerate the deployment of rooftop solar, the PSSEA bared a four-point policy agenda which include the removal of the 100 KW cap for net-metering, simplified application of incentives, standardized protocol for LGU permit issuance, and access to financing. The group said the continuous decline in the cost of solar panels shortens the payback period of rooftop solar to four years.
“No other financial instruments promise such returns considering the savings to be generated for the remaining 20-year life of the solar panel after payback,” PSSEA said.
Solar is the number one investment you can make with secured 15-20% payback per year. Compare this with the money in your savings account that earns you 1-2% per annum or a car that depreciates and needs gasoline/maintenance regularly and it should result in a relatively easy ROI calculation for any home or business owner. As your home or business saves thousands off your monthly electricity bill, you will soon recover your initial investment on your PHILERGY German Solar system in no time.
Moreover, our tropical sun gives us about 12 hours of daylight every day, making a solar energy system in the Philippines the most efficient in generating free energy.
