Why Solar

Why Solar Power

Global warming continues to be on the rise. And we’re still over-depending on non-renewable energy resources. This alarming situation commands us to immediately opt for an alternative, non-exhaustive resource of energy so to ensure a sustainable and prosperous future. This is where Solar becomes a credible choice.
Solar Power is the electricity / heat that is obtained by harnessing the energy of the sun’s rays through various means. It involves the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity through various methods the most popular of which is Photo-Voltaic Panels for generating electricity and Vacuum Tubes for heating.

Using Solar Power has the following benefits

Reduces Water Consumption

Solar power plants need small amounts of water for cleaning. Solar Pumps reduce water output on cloudy days when agriculture need lesser water.

Reduced dependence on Fossil Fuels

Due to the reduced burning of fossil fuels for electricity and for heating it is a benefit to countries where most fossil fuels are imported.

Reduces Global Warming

Each unit of Solar saves 1.5 tons of CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases as well.

Improves your health

Reduced Pollution, Reduced Climate Change leads to better health for you and your family.
