The benefit of using solar rooftops in 2019

The solar technology is growing at a fast pace. In 2019 solar rooftop technologies expected to hit the market by including a various range of solar panels. The advantages of solar energy has attracted people to use it beyond commercial and residential usage. One of the major benefit is its pollution free and environmental-friendly and hence used in different vertices.  

Installing rooftop solar panels proves to be beneficial in various other sectors such as Hospital, Warehouse, colleges and schools. 

How does it benefit Hospitals?

 

Solar Rooftops

Hospitals both in urban and rural areas consume a lot of energy throughout the day. The benefit of using solar energy to power equipment can be a life-saving situation. Here are the reasons for installing solar power in hospitals.

  1. Installed in less space– solar rooftop panels in a covered parking areas can be installed even if there is very less space, as long as the structure can bear the weight of panels.
  2. Power backup – In case of any power interruption, rooftop solar is the best option for backup power.
  3. Cost-effective – The cost of the rooftop solar power has levelled to 4.5-5/kWh (or less)  fixed for 25 years, unlike the diesel power of 18/kWh (or more) which keeps increasing.
  4. Minimal maintenance – A solar power plant requires little maintenance from the energy consumer.
  5. Noise minimization – It’s a property of key values in hospitals that photovoltaic (PV) panels operate with no noise because there are no mechanical parts.  

When powering life-saving equipment, Solar power should always be with diesel power or battery power. It will not be large enough to power your entire load. However, proper integration requires careful design and sizing of your solar plant regarding your diesel generator.   

How does it benefit warehouse?

The benefits of using solar power in ware house:

  1. Source of income generator – Solar rooftop panels can be installed in the empty rooftop space that remains unutilized in many warehouses. We can export the excess electricity to government-supported schemes for solar installation. This help to generate a lot of Income and that can be used for further investment.
  2. Provides energy security – Rooftop solar can produce electricity during load-shedding, ensuring that critical loads are always running.
  3. Cost-effective –  The cost of the rooftop solar power has levelled to 4.5-5/kWh (or less)  fixed for 25 years, unlike the diesel power of 18/kWh (or more) which keeps increasing.
  4. Minimal maintenance – A solar power plant requires little maintenance from the energy consumer.
  5. Flexible configurations – solar rooftop panels in covered parking areas can be installed even if there is very less space, as long as the structure can bear the weight of panels.

How does it benefit a college?

 

The benefits of using solar power in college:

  1. Helps to promote solar education – Installing solar rooftop panels in college gives the students a first-hand experience on the working of solar farm, stimulating interest in the field. This can prove to be an inspiration for encouraging solar education.
  2. Installing solar can meet the load requirement – The electricity generated through solar can be used to meet the varying load requirements in colleges. For instance, it can be for laboratory equipments, lighting and ventilation in classrooms, hostel facilities, recreation facilities and much more.
  3. Cost-effective –  The cost of the rooftop solar power has levelled to 4.5-5/kWh (or less)  fixed for 25 years, unlike the diesel power of 18/kWh (or more) which keeps increasing.
  4. Minimal maintenance – A solar power plant requires little maintenance from the energy consumer.
  5. Flexible configurations – solar rooftop panels in the covered parking areas can be installed even if there is very less space, as long as the structure can bear the weight of panels.

How does it benefit school?

 

The benefits of using solar power in schools:

  1. Helps with power cut issues – we often see the schools in rural places with constant power cut which becomes unreliable. Off-grid solar rooftop system helps with this problem by providing power as a backup.
  2. Promote solar learning –  Installing solar rooftop panels in school can promote solar learning which can prove to be a productive educational exercise.
  3. Saving the environment – The solar rooftop panels reduce the carbon footprint. This sets an example for students about saving the environment.

 

Conclusion

Solar rooftop installations in various sectors have its own advantages and disadvantages. it can be more as a beneficiary option. It reduces power bills and helps to gain energy independence. A combination of low energy usage, unused rooftop space and better integration makes it ideal for various sectors.
