Solar Energy in the Philippines

Every time I watch our local news, I see people complaining about the rotating brown out in Luzon particularly in Manila. Well, I couldn’t help but sympathize with them since we too here in Bacolod are suffering from scheduled brown out.

My husband said that the increasing demand of electricity usage is too great from what our power plants can provide that is why there is a rotating or scheduled brown out. The only solution for this kind of problem is for the government to expand power production by look for new and innovative ways to produce them or get your house a home solar kit!

Yes, you read my post right! There is such thing as a home solar kit that can be bought and used as an alternative electricity source for your home. We all know that solar energy in the Philippines is possible since we are considered to be a tropical island. That simply means we have more sunshine here!

But solar energy is good for individual uses but not for mass production. Just like what I commented at the forum with the topic Solar Energy wherein I participated, I believe that it requires a bigger land area to have solar panels installed to collect sufficient solar energy to provide for the masses to use which I believe is not feasible. But installing home solar kits to individual homes is indeed possible. No more land area to convert but only roofs to install.

As for me, I am thinking of getting my own home solar kit. If El Niño is making its toll on us, why not harness his power to generate electricity for my home?! That would be taking advantage for our benefit right?

    I’m also all out for solar energy (or the use of wind vane technology). in iloilo, they’re actually thinking of building a coal plant, which for me is a really bad decision, considering the environment issues we have today, not to mention the health problems it will cause. even toxicologists themselves warn of the ill effects this would bring, but no one’s listening.

    i’d like to use solar energy (or wind vane) in my own house, too. do you have any idea how much it would cost or how to do it yourself?

    by the way, you’ve got some great material here. nice to see so many pinoys and pinays doing so well in the blogging industry. as a blogger, you would, perhaps, be interested in the opportunity to earn more money from your blog. Buy Blog Reviews appears to be a good site to find writing projects to blog about. Please use my link to register. You can find it in any of my blogs, http://toonatoons-underthesun.blogspot.com,

  2. Hello there too!

    Hmmm… maybe I can recommend this home solar kit to my husband too as an alternative source of electricity.

    Thank you for sharing this information. I think living in a tropical country and the summer coming in early, it would really be good for us if we invest into a home solar kit. Will keep on reading more info about that.

    I think Solar energy is the answer to our long electrical supply problem. Maybe they will let the residents use it, then the commercial supply will be use for the industry.

  6. Comments are all well said with interest in the technical aspects of solar energy. I noted that there was no inquiry for practical information. Knowledge of the practical aspect of solar technology should precede the technical since that will form a good basis for deeper study. I am a proponent of home solar power and writes articles for beginners at: http://www.justsolarhome.blogspot.com. It’s wise to know the practical before you move on to the technical.
