MYTHS

MYTHS ABOUT SOLAR POWER SYSTEM

 

 

  • Ø SOLAR DOES NOT WORK

This common misconception arises from the fact that many solar street lighting projects in Nigeria are not working. The failure of these projects is due to factors such as: lack of technical competence, poor maintenance or perhaps basic fraudulence with the level of corruption now. However, with our satisfied clients spread across the country, it obvious that solar works.

 

  • Ø SOLAR DOES NOT RUN HEAVY DUTY APPLIANCES

Many people think that at best, solar is just for basic lighting and nothing else. They believe you can’t run your air conditioners , deep freezers , water heaters , electric irons , microwaves, or even televisions on solar; this is far from  true. Our clients run their desire heavy appliances depending on their installed capacities

 

  • Ø SOLAR DOES NOT  WORK IN RAINY SEASON OR IN CLOUDY WEATHER CONDITIONS

Of course we know that the more intense other sunshine, the higher the amount of electricity generated . however, even with poor sunshine due to rain or cloud cover , our solar energy system still generate enough electricity for use as they are calibrated to work even with poor sunshine due to rain or cloud cover , our solar energy system s still generate electricity for as they are calibrated to work even in these conditions . moreover we use premium solar equipment which delivers maximum power even in poor weather conditions

 

  • Ø SOLAR IS TOO EXPENSIVE

What many fail to realize is that genuine components dosnt come cheap . never theless , a side by side analysis of one’s current power rated expenses (phcn plus generator) versus a solar installation which runs 24hours daily will show that a solar  energy system is far more cost effective . for instance average petrol generator (say 2.5kva) consumes about one litre of fuel per hour .thus if u run it for 24hrs a day, just like solar would run you would spend at least N2,328 per litre ): this implies that every year N849,720 goes up in smoke , aside from the cost of purchase and maintainance of the generator . therefore in 25 years which is the average life span of solar panels you would have spent over N21,234
