Top 5 reasons why contractors should adopt Solar power in Africa

As Africa’s energy sector continues to expand solar power has been very key as most of the contractors have started adopting this source of energy.

However the uptake of Solar power in Africa has been largely slow with most countries still using fossil fuels which are not environment friendly and doesn’t save any cost.

Here are some of the top reasons to why solar power in Africa should be adopted:

1. Solar Power Is Good for the Environment

The most common known benefit concerning solar power is, that it is a clean, green source of energy, that pollutes less than almost every other source of energy. Solar power doesn’t produce greenhouse gasses and it doesn’t pollute water or any other part of nature. Other than that, solar power is almost self sufficient, and only requires a little water to work.

2. Solar Power Makes You Independent of Electricity Prices

The price for electricity usually differs through the day, being more expensive in the middle of the day and in the early evening. Because power plants create a relatively steady output of electricity, the prices rise and fall throughout the day, based on the beforementioned change in demand. With solar power, you can avoid this rise in price, and get cheap energy all day.

3. Solar Power Causes Use for Underutilized Land
Most countries have a lot of land, particularly away from the big cities and capitals, which is used for nothing. With solar power, we can actually make use of this underutilized land, while we generate great value. In this way we don’t have to use spaces, that are more appropriate for other things

4. Solar Power Causes Less Electricity Loss
The longer energy has to be transported, the more energy is wasted on the way. If you have your source of energy on your roof, you (and the rest of us) will lose a lot less energy, than we do right now.

5. Solar Power Improves Grid Security
When we have a lot of people generating energy with solar power, we are less likely to experience blackouts. Each house with solar cells on it, functions as a small power plant, which provides us with a great grid security, in cause of human-caused or natural disasters.
