Why Use Solar Power?

Most of the world's current electricity supply is produced from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas. These traditional energy sources have various challenges including but not limited too rising prices,  growing environmental concerns over the climate change risks and a limited supply of fossil fuels. As a result governments, businesses and consumers are increasingly supporting the development of alternative energy sources and new technologies for electricity generation. Renewable energy sources such as solar, biomass, geothermal, hydroelectric and windpower generation have emerged as potential alternatives which address some of these concerns. As opposed to fossil fuels,  renewable energy sources are generally unlimited in availability.

Solar power generation is one of the most rapidly growing renewable sources of electricity. Solar power generation has several advantages over other forms of electricity generation:Solar energy does not require any form of fuel to work. Although there is variability in the amount and timing of sunlight over the day, season and year, a properly sized and configured system can be designed to be highly reliable while providing long-term, fixed price electricity supply.

Solar power production generates electricity with a limited impact on the environment as compared to other forms of electricity production. Solar panels can be added as the need arises. With more and more technological advances in solar power it is fast becoming a viable alternative is conventional electricity supply.

Increasing Costs
With the increasing costs of regular electricity finding an alternative energy solution is becoming more and more crucial. With the supply of fossil fuels soon not being able to meet the demand it is now time to find a better alternatives. With the advances that have been made in renewable energy the cost is no longer prohibitive.
With the Eskom power grid becoming under more pressure, lack of maintenace and other factors the electricity supply in South Africa has become more and more unreliable. With company using generators as a temporary solution they are very expensive to run, noisey and not a very good long term solution. Solar power offers a more long term, viable option
Environmentally Friendly
Solar power is one of the most environmentally friendly energy solutions. With little to no impact on the environment it is the ideal choice for supplying power to homes and businesses. With global warming becoming more apparent every year it's time now to start making a difference by switching to a cleaner source of power.
