The Advantage of Solar Energy Panels

When we have our 3 months vacation in the Philippines, they cut back the power and it wasn’t as bad during the month of December. We have no power for an hour but that’s it. Sometimes, it only happens once or twice a week. So it wasn’t pretty bad at all, I was used to that matter before migrating in the USA.

Sometimes, it’s funny to think that when you don’t experience of not having an electricity and an hour would seem like forever. The best part of not having power happens in the morning where there is still sunlight outside so we do some other things. Alternatively, we would rather go to the mall to unwind for an hour or so hoping that by the time we get back home, the power is back.

Nevertheless, things have changed lately, after 2 months of being in my Hometown, the cutting back of electricity is no longer than 1 hour, and it reaches 2-3 hours consecutively. Isn’t that crazy, for me it is. What are you going to do without power for those allotted time? If you have an appliance that needs power in order to work then the power is a must. Generators are affordable thus; gasoline is ripping your pocket off.  

The outrageous power problem is due to the booming city, the power company is trying to provide electricity to the whole place. I don’t blame when that happens, the source of the power just couldn’t provide the civilizing city at the same time, so I guess everyone has to sacrifice. I even ask myself, why not go green; I have read so many good effects about using solar energy panels. It will save you money and it can provide a house a power even when the power it has gone. Why not taking advantage of the energy the sun is giving us. One good thing about the Philippines is it feels like summer all year round there. That energy from the solar would definitely one big help not only for them but for the nature as well.

I hope big companies would think and even try to apply solar energy panels for the source of their energy. They have the wide roof where they can place the said panels. It would make things easier and cheaper too.

  1. One good thing about those brownouts or blackouts is our electricity bill decreases, hehe! And sometimes, more bonding with family outside home is what happens, happiness!

  6. I've always wanted to have them but always scared of the upfront cost

  7. It seems that it would be a no brainer for places that have lots of sun year round to have loads of solar panels around--the up front cost may or may not be prohibitive but the long term savings would certainly make up for that.

  8. I did not realize that was the norm for Phillipines. USA needs to take notice of our freedoms~

  9. The benefits of solar energy are still widely untapped and it is an option which we should be considering for our homes.

  10. Solar panels are a good option if affordable. I know my husband has mentioned this a few times himself that it is something we would consider if we can afford it. I wonder how much you can save.

  11. These would be great in the Philippines but then the cost of getting one is a lot.

  12. Cutting power for an hour here or there would not be bad, maybe more people would get up and be active. I love solar panels, we are planning to put some in for our pool heater next year. Maybe we can hook more things up to them.

  13. Sun is a good source of renewable energy though having solar energy panel I think is costly, for a single family at least. Though if affordable, many would certainly have it.

  14. ...whenever the hubby and I would pass by a certain road in our locality we would see streetlights which we think are solar powered...we have the same conversation each time, about the lights being expensive yet something energy saving and should be widely used :)

  15. I can't imagine daily power outages. Solar panels do seem like a smart option since the cost is all up-front opposed to generators which continue to increase in cost since they require gasoline to run.

  16. these solar panels are very useful especially in remote areas where electricity is non-existent. I have seen a documentary where they installed solar panels in remote barrios so they have lights at night.

  17. Solar panels are getting popular everywhere, I hope that it will be introduced in more affordable price though.

  18. Solar panel is fine but it cost a lot. Wind power is a more cheaper way.

  19. It helps but not all can afford it coz it's pricey.

  21. I really wish I could afford to buy a solar panel but I've heard they are quite pricey.

  22. I hate when there's no power, I felt so helpless! I agree with the solar panel but it is expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Solar panels are great but, they are too expensive. We tried to ask for an estimate and we just halted the project.

  24. I hope to get solar panels for our home in Florida. I want to put to use the scorching heat of the sun here.
