Why Should Homeowners In Zimbabwe Go The Solar Way?

There are many whys and wherefores to why homeowners in Zimbabwe should go solar but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common motives.

Today, many people understand and appreciate the fact that solar is a great home efficacy upgrade and are very keen to reduce their carbon footprint while also enhancing their property value.

So, have you been thinking about the whole outlook of solar energy lately, and pondered if it would be a smart move to install solar panels in your house? Have you seen your neighbors going actively solar and wondered what it could be? Or you are looking for some economical alternative to electricity? 

Your motivations for going solar could be anything, economic, environmental, or personal, this substantial list of solar power benefits will have something for everybody.

What Is Solar Energy?

Solar originates from the ‘sun’ and solar energy is essentially the energy generated from heat and light radiations from the sun. This energy can be renewed into different energy forms, electricity or electrical energy is the most common one.

Solar energy gained popularity ever since it was discovered. The main reason behind its growing popularity is that it’s one of the cheapest and most reliable alternatives to other energy types.

How Is Solar Energy Converted Into Electricity?

To convert to solar power into electricity, solar panels are fixed on the roof of a house. These panels absorb the light and heat rays from the sun and store it until it’s converted into electricity by an installed inverter.

Why Should Homeowners Go The Solar Way?

1. It’s Free

Well, literally Solar Energy, unlike other natural resources like water, comes completely FREE. No Government or Individual owns the sun’s energy; hence it can never be sold. You can access it anytime and anywhere. The only thing you need to keep in mind when designing your home is that the architecture is perfect to absorb all the sun’s goodness.

2. Drastically Reduces Or Totally Eliminates Your Electricity Bills

Electricity costs can make up for a large portion of your monthly expenses, with solar panel systems, you can generate free power for your home for entire 25+ year lifecycle. Also, even if you don’t manage to produce 100 % of the energy you consume, solar definitely helps in reducing a significant amount of your utility bills which means you’ll still save a lot of money.

3. Less Dependence On The National Grid

With solar energy linked to your house, your dependence on the national grid drops gradually, until the power from it is only used for activities that demand lots of current/power that solar may not supply readily.

4. Great Return On Your Investment

Don’t consider solar panels to be a matter of huge expense, instead, these are a great investment. They surpass the returns you expect from those mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. The credit going to substantial electricity bill savings.

5. Increase Your Property Value

Plush interiors, top-notch fittings, and fixtures, beautiful wallpapers, fancy landscaping etc. do you think these things add any value to your property? Of course not, these features rarely add any value to your property price. Multiple studies have confirmed that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes.

6. Protect The Environment

Buildings are responsible for a large amount of carbon emissions and going solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. A typical residential solar panel system eliminates 3-4 tons of carbon emissions each year, this is equivalent to planting over 100 trees yearly.

Why Zimbabwe Needs More Solar?

Solar energy is becoming more popular all around the world, and Zimbabwe is no exception. With just over 1,000 units per capita annual consumption, Zimbabwe is last among the top 10 developing and developed countries. Our country’s per capita energy consumption is almost a third of the average per capita consumption to grow in the contemporary world and almost one-twelfth of nations like USA, Canada & China.

These figures prove that our country is going to need a lot more power than it currently produces to sustain its growth, development, and economy. This is going surely going to be one mammoth task. And a lot of it is going to be driven by the microgrid or Rooftop Solar. Hence, rooftop solar is the key solution to modern-day power needs.

That’s why we say Go Solar, it’s time to design buildings that use solar energy positively. Learn more about Solar Architecture.
