The green energy movement continues to gain ground, and advanced technology every day, rapidly growing the photovoltaic industry. Not only does this mean that the equipment continues to decline in cost, but also that the government program began advancing the field through tax breaks and incentive programs.
In addition, solar power can be applied as an investment, because it can be resold through the grid to the power company, commonly called net metering, or simply be used to lock in lower off-peak rates.
The most obvious benefit of the finance photovoltaic systems, whether in the home or workplace, is a potential ‘savings of commercial power’ (Also known as ‘การประหยัดพลังงานเชิงพาณิชย์’ in the Thai language). Any number of installed solar panels will reduce these costs.
The highest savings occur when the solar power generated to be used during peak hours when energy costs are at their highest. Similarly, a larger system, which is capable of fully powering the building, can be tied to the grid, allowing the energy to, in essence, be sold to the power company.
A photovoltaic system can be used for more than just turning on a building. One intriguing possibility is in the field of hybrid and electric vehicles. This vehicle, which is supported to some degree by electricity, needs to be installed and recharged, offset the savings gained by the lowered fuel consumption.
A small solar kit, with sufficient power output, can be set as a charging station, and really can eliminate the cost of electric vehicles. In fact, some retailers have begun to provide the station as a kit, making the process all the easier.
Photovoltaics is one of the fastest-growing fields in the energy industry. The new products are being developed every day, with products that are dropping in price with no signs of slowing. Aside from their savings potential, government programs are sure to continue to offer incentives.
