Green energy: Why is solar the best option?

Since the world is heavily dependent on electricity, it is expected that we have invented many ways of generating it. Some of the methods used to generate power are very damaging to the environment and earth, and therefore renewable energy sources have become very popular.

Most of us categorize renewable energy and green energy together, but there is in fact a difference between the two. So, what is green energy actually?

Green energy is any type of energy that can be produced without damaging the environment even further, mostly referring to the emission of greenhouse gasses and other pollution. This means that while some energy sources (like biomass) might be renewable, they technically cannot be deemed “green”.

There are however a bunch of green energy sources, including solar power, hydroelectricity, wind-generated power, and more. They pave the way for a brighter, greener future for nature and humankind.

Still on the fence? Here’s why solar power is the best choice for you

Financial implications: Solar panels with a complete battery storage system allows the consumer to go completely off-grid regarding electricity consumption. This means no more electricity bills, yet constant power supply.

Reliability: No more loadshedding! Power uncertainty is quite the catalyst for stress and conflict, and with the reliability of solar energy in sunny South Africa, you can rest assured that you won’t have to deal with that ever again.

Custom systems: Instead of paying a monthly provision fee for inconsistent power supply, pay for only what you need. A solar system can be completely customized with the right amount of panels and batteries that just cover your needs.

Accessibility: While other green energy sources might be equally effective, solar power is currently the most accessible for non-commercial generating – like your home! It’s the easiest option of the bunch for installation, maintenance, and everyday use.
