First of all,I am a bit confused as to why Nigerians don't use Solar power,are we that addicted to NEPA and noisy generators?
Japan,indonesia and alot of european countries (UK not included) are beginning to embrace solar energy.
I guess we are waiting for america to make it a trend before we pick up on it.
What are the pros and cons?
*)We have abundant sun,
*)Solar system is efficient and does not need much maintenance in comparison to gens,
*)is not noisy
*)charges in the the daytime and you can use is for hours in the night.
*)does not need diesel to operate.
*)COST EFFECTIVE!!! I heard of a company that sells a home unit for $600 in South africa.
How much do we spend on a gen,maintain it and top it up with diesel for a year in comparison?
I would be interested in getting information on any solar energy providers in Nigeria. Does anyone know?
