As a tropical country, the Philippines has untapped vast potential of solar energy. Solara pplications have long been used as off-grid solutions in rural, remote areas in the country. Energy being a critical enabler, solar systems have provided for basic needs such as lighting, water pumping, communications and a variety of livelihood activities that immediately improve the lives of of Filipinos in areas where electricity is not readily available.
Today, with the help of government policies, private and non-government institutions as well as multilateral agencies, solar energy is being made accessible to urban homeowners. Rooftops can now be installed with PVsystems and families can expect as much as 30 percent savings in their electricity bills. Urban homes can now be empowered to become clean energy producers, help the environment and at the same time reduce their electricity costs.
Taking inspiration from Germany’s Woche der Sonne (Week of the Sun),Solar Day Pilipinas 2013 is a celebration of the benefits of Solar Energy in the Philippines. We would like to invite you to join us in this first ever event as a partner in promoting clean, safe, inexpensive and renewable energy.
