This is the one of the main advantage of a rooftop solar power plant. Cost of solar power is 17% to 27% cheaper when compared to industrial / commercial energy tariff. This is improving day by day as the cost of solar panels are dropping and grid tariff is increasing.
We will achieve self reliance with rooftop solar power plant, means we are not depended on grid power most of the times. You will have enough power generated even during bad weather and even during natural calamities when grid power is not available.
Green Energy Source
Solar is a source of renewable energy. It poses lesser pollution risk to environment in contrast to conventional energy sources. Power your home by green energy and make our environment a safer place for all coming generations.
Solar power plant is a great investment option for a period of 20 ~ 25 years. Electricity prices keep fluctuating day by day and it keeps rising gradually. So it is very difficult to calculate electricity charges of grid power. But in the case of solar panel it is very straight forward to calculate it.
Low Maintenance Costs
Solar power plant needs only little maintenance. It just needs proper cleaning and health monitoring from time to time. Properly maintained solar panels will easily give a life span over 25 years.
Improves Grid Security / Energy Security
We are improving the grid / energy security when installing a rooftop solar power plant. Electrical grid is vulnerable to cyberattacks, physical attacks by terrorists and also by natural calamities. Production of energy at various sources or distributed energy production will reduce these risks very much and avoids any chance of complete blackout. And more energy production will make energy accessible to all and will reduce grid energy tariff.
Energy Production during Peak Hours
Coincidentally solar power plant produces more energy during peak hours. Usually peak energy consumption happens at afternoon during hot sunny days due to the use of fans, air conditioning etc. So a solar power plant is reducing the peak demand of energy by producing more energy during peak hours.
Less Energy Loss due to Transportation
Currently around 23% of the energy produced is wasted while transportation. Transferring electric energy over long distance will waste energy in the form of heat due to the resistance in the transmission lines. Since rooftop solar power plants don’t need to transfer energy over long distance, there won’t be any energy loss due to transportation.
