Strong arguments for solar energy production

  • The prerequisite for solar power is available everywhere - the sun!

  • Solar power can be produced on almost all roofs.

  • Apart from the environmental aspects photovoltaics offers itself as a profitable investment.

  • Solar power is a modern way of generating electricity: regenerative and economical as well as environmentally friendly and clean.

  • The feeding of solar power into the public network produces zero emissions and is therefore an excellent environmental investment.

  • Also it is possible to provide very exact forecasts of the yields to be expected. This reduces the risk for the investment in a PV system.
     
  • Every photovoltaic system leads to a reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases by the saving of coal, oil and gas. A 1 kWp solar power system saves the environment approximately 850 kg CO² emissions every year!
      
  • The installation of a typical 10 kW roof system can be completed within three to four days. After commissioning maintenance is hardly needed.

  • The solar modules are stable and extremely durable. For sensitive components such as inverters long-term maintenance contracts can be concluded.

  • Photovoltaic modules have a long performance guarantee - usually between 20 and 25 years.
     
  • The energy payback time, that is the time needed to produce again the energy used in the manufacture of the PV system, is between 3 - 4 years for crystalline solar modules and between 1.5 - 2.5 years for thin-film modules.
  • Your own photovoltaic system creates independence. Due to the increase in costs of fossil energy sources and the phasing out of nuclear energy, the operator of a PV system can expect with above average extra income in the future.

  • Photovoltaics has established itself in the market internationally and has an overall positive image.

  • Solar energy has the highest long term potential of all renewable energy sources.
