Solar Energy Solutions Benefits

Solar energy is energy from the sun and it is free, affordable, and renewable. Using solar energy solutions has proven to be beneficial in different ways: Generating your own electricity means that you will be using less from the utility supplier. This will immediately translate to savings on your energy bill. Solar energy is applicable everywhere. As long as there is sunshine, solar energy can be deployed anywhere. This is particularly useful for remote regions with no access to any other source of electricity.

My system is great. We have not been without hot water at any time. There have been only a few days that we needed to limit our hot water usage because of cloudy weather. Most days that have clouds still have enough solar heat available to provide for our hot water needs. And our 300 liters storage tank stores enough heat for a couple of days if we are conservative with our hot water usage when it is extremely cloudy. For the past two months, we have not had the electric heating element plugged into an electrical outlet so we have used no energy to heat water except what we have collected from the sun. And we have had a plentiful supply of hot water. Even covering approximately half of the evacuated tubes to prevent overheating the water to the point that the temp/pressure valve pops off, we have had an abundance of hot water, AT NO COST to heat the water. Just what we had been looking for when we purchased the tank.” appreciated Petite Pendo, a solar water heater client living in Membley, Nairobi.
