Solar is the world’s most abundant resource. The life-giving energy of the sun is also an invaluable source of electricity, with modern technology allowing the safe harnessing of the sun for years to come.
Solar PV is easily deployable and flexible, allowing it to fit into various scenarios, from large-scale utility production, to solar microgrids for remote clients.
Cost trajectories of solar PV system components have declined sharply over the past years, meaning that the technology is more affordable and business paybacks, or solar tariffs, are lower than ever before. By purchasing solar electricity or a solar PV system, businesses, governments and individuals are investing in a power source that is clean, affordable and reliable.
What is Solar PV?
Solar PV systems generate electricity by converting the sun’s rays directly into electricity. With no moving parts, solar modules generate electricity with almost no maintenance and last for 25 years. Most of the world’s solar modules are made from crystalline silicon, or in its basic form: sand. There is an abundance of input material, and solar technology has advanced significantly over the last few years, meaning that the systems are becoming cheaper to install and more reliable in their outputs.
Benefits of Solar PV
Solar energy is an affordable and sustainable alternative electricity source. With no moving parts, solar modules generate electricity directly from the sun’s rays and last for 25 years. By offsetting the electricity purchased from a national utility, or by providing cheap energy to a utility, SOLA creates significant cost savings.
Generally SOLA’s energy systems payback in 2 to 5 years and last for 25 years, and its Power Purchase Agreements have fixed tariff escalations. This translates into significant cost savings for businesses and governments over the lifetime of the solar plant.
The Business Case
As economic growth drives the demand for electricity, utilities are forced to build new generation infrastructure and increase their tariffs by alarming rates. This means that relying on centralised grid infrastructure is subject to steep price increases in the future. Solar power is a successful means of decentralising energy supply and a way for business to regain control over energy supply. Solar PV is the more reliable, affordable, and cleaner alternative.
If you are a large energy consumer, complete our feasibility tool to get a high-level quote for a solar system
Compiling a feasibility study requires technical skills and time by the SOLA team. Whilst we will attempt to service as many potential clients as possible, detailed feasibility studies are not guaranteed and will more likely be carried out on sites that show promise for a large-scale solar PV and/or combined battery storage system over 100 kWp in size. Should your system not be feasible, we will let you know. Please note that individuals seeking residential solar installations will not be serviced through our detailed feasibility tool; please rather contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for a referral to a residential solar provider. Should you need assistance with filling in the tool, please contact us.
SOLA’s brand promise
By procuring SOLA’s services, clients are buying in to a brand that stands for engineering excellence, guaranteed performance, and long-term partnership. SOLA Clients can rest assured that each solar system design is engineered carefully and thoroughly, with internal checks and balances to ensure a high quality solar PV system design that will guarantee performance over its lifetime. SOLA’s Performance Guarantee provides assurance of financial compensation should a solar PV system underperform.
