The sun is the most consistent energy source for the planet earth and one of the ways that this energy can be utilized is to generate and provide electricity which is an essential need for households and businesses across the globe. As a consistent source of energy, solar energy can be utilized in such a way as to generate enough power to provide electricity for the entire planet for years.
The everyday Nigerian grapples with unstable electricity. Despite spending millions of Naira yearly on electricity bills, generators, and even fuel he/she only enjoys a few hours of electricity supply daily.
Solar energy doesn’t just pose a great advantage for individuals in society but also to numerous business owners who have no choice but to depend on electricity supply. Solar energy provides a lot of benefits for millions of people in Nigeria and globally.
Here are 4 ways solar energy greatly benefits human lives daily.
1. Saves money in the long run
A lot of Nigerians spend a fortune on electricity, from estimated bills to incessant increases in tariffs. Individuals who are dependent on electricity for their businesses incur millions yearly, not just on bills, but due to unstable supply, also on alternative means of generating electricity such as generators and the fuel they consume. Solar energy presents a cost-effective alternative. If business owners adopted solar energy instead of depending on traditional electricity supply, they would end up saving a lot of money.
2. Renewable energy
As a renewable source of power, solar energy has an important role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and climate change which is critical to protecting humans, wildlife, and the ecosystem. Solar energy can also improve air quality and reduce water use from energy production. Homes, businesses, and other buildings that rely upon the traditional electricity supply are responsible for a significant percentage of carbon emissions in Nigeria.
3. Reduces pollution
Solar energy is a natural, unlimited, and renewable energy source that emits no gases or by-products that contaminate the environment or the air. It emits no form of pollution. No air pollution from burning fuel, no noise pollution from generators, or water pollution from trying to power an energy source. With the installation of solar panels, there is no sort of pollution from this renewable source of energy.
4. Improves grid security
Countless times Nigerians have gone days without power supply as a result of the collapse of the national grid. Solar energy provides an opportunity to live off that grid, and on self-generated electricity through solar panels. So not only can Nigerians live without fear of a collapsing power grid and vulnerability to national blackouts, but they will have the assurance that they can depend on their electrical power source.
Solar energy provides so much more. It gives satisfaction, assurance, and hope for a better future. At Ecotutu we believe in providing good and clean energy.
