The power of the sun is something pretty spectacular. Solar generation, which harnesses this awesome energy and turns it into electricity, can be a fantastic, renewable alternative to the traditional methods of generating power. Currently, solar only generates around 0.1% of NZ’s total renewable energy, but the price of solar PV (photovoltaic) equipment has been dropping in the last few years, making it more appealing to both homeowners and businesses. Despite this, it pays to do your research, because for many people it can work out to be more expensive than grid-supplied electricity.
Down at the Village we’re up with the play, and we’ve got all the present facts about solar generation. We don’t sell it, nor recommend suppliers, but we’d love to show you how it works and the possibilities it presents for our community.
