Solar power generating system provide free power from the sun by converting sunlight to electricity with no moving parts, zero emissions, and with no maintenance.
This is an all year round noiseless un-interruptible power source, with no problem of surges of high voltages. Energy from the sun is the most reliable and safest energy source to highly sensitive equipment.
Despite Nigeria’s natural endowment with abundant Sunshine throughout the year by virtue of her location in the tropics, this alternative free and clean energy source have remain un-harnessed and under-utilized, even with the perennial problem and the epileptic performance of power supply from the traditional source (Power Holding Company of Nigeria PHCN).
Advantages of solar power include the following;
In view of the present high cost of diesel or petrol, which can also be jacked up or become scarce anytime, couple with the associated high cost of maintenance of generator, it is very obvious that the amount invested on solar energy is far more cheaper on the long run than the cost of running a generator. These cost benefit is shown in a sample analysis of expenses on Generator compared to investment on solar power contained in the attachment.
From the above mentioned facts, couple with several inconveniences and risk associated with handling of petrol; it is obvious that solar power is not only safer, it is also more efficient, convenient and cost effective.
Sir, in the light of the several advantages in solar energy as an alternative power source, we wish to request your institution to explore this energy option for your vital energy need. There is no limit to the amount of power that can be generated from solar source. The installation can be centralized or localized to meet your need for remote uses.
