TURN UNPRODUCTIVE ROOF TOP INTO PRODUCTIVE REVENUE STREAM!
Look at all of the roofs shown in the photo…. This is a aerial shot of a relatively small part of Islamabad housing society. How many of the homes and businesses in the photo have solar? It is tough to say, but it would be easy to defend the statement that less than 1% of these roofs have solar.
Can your roof generate any income for you? Traditionally the answer is no, but today, with solar the answer is yes.
We have already shown that solar power systems are a great financial investment and a great environmental investment. It is also a great productivity investment by turning unproductive space into productive space.
Think of the impact of having solar on the majority of these currently unproductive roof spaces:
- Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills
- Build & Own Rooftop Power Plant: The rising and setting of the sun is extremely consistent in Pakistan. With more than 300 average sunny days per year, installing a solar system guarantees you create your own electricity as long as the sun shines.
- Earn a great return on your investment
- Protect against rising energy costs
- Increase your property value
- Boost energy independence
- protect the environment
- Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
- Net Metering as a Bank Account: After initial investment, net metering serves as a bank account with the utility grid; during the day the system deposits excess solar energy into your account and at night the user will withdraw the energy from the grid.
- Job creation.
- Short Payback Period: Solar power operation is totally free (unlike generators) and the solar system pays back for the initial investment in THREE to FOUR years after which it generates profits that grows for the next 15 – 20 years.
- Low Maintenance: Solar net metering systems generally don’t require a lot of maintenance except for regular cleaning of solar panels.
- Social Benefit: Since your solar energy system is connected to the local distribution companies such as Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) distribution system, you’re helping them reduce the electricity demand and supply gap by generating your own electricity and sharing IESCO’s load Solar really does make sense!
