MANILA, Philippines – Solar energy is slowly gaining prominence in the Philippines.
But while many are aware of the benefits of renewable energy and clean distributive generation, not many are willing to shell out the extra bucks to buy a solar panel. Yes, solar panels carry a hefty price tag but they also bring big returns beyond the investment.
Despite its long-term benefits, many don’t initially consider investing in solar energy because it can’t be immediately monetized. There have been recent developments in the solar energy industry. And locally, going solar is starting to look like an attractive and more viable option.
Especially with the looming energy shortage, investing in alternative energy can cut down dependence of fossil fuels. This can also help the environment by lowering CO2 emissions.
By investing in this type of energy, you can contribute to preventing or curbing the potential 2015 power crisis.
If you are considering going solar, here are a few things you need to know. –Rappler.com
