Why should we go Solar? Well, someone says: “To save money”, another: “To increase my property value” or “To protect the environment”. There are many reasons to choose Green Energy; it creates jobs, avoid utility inflation, eliminate electric bills, help the economy, great investment and demonstrate your commitment to sustainability.

But what is Solar Energy exactly? Let`s have a look.

What is Solar Energy?

Every hour the sun beams onto Earth more than enough energy to satisfy global energy needs for an entire year. Solar energy is the technology used to harness the sun's energy and make it useable. Today, the technology produces less than one tenth of one percent of global energy demand.

Direct energy from the sun can be used as photovoltaic energy, where light is converted directly into electricity. Solar energy is a clean, renewable source of energy which, once installed, does not face some of the issues with access, availability and pollution that are experienced with fuels such as wood and coal.

Going solar doesn’t mean going off the grid. You stay connected to your current electricity provider via a two-way smart meter that ESB Networks installs. Power Capital designs your solar energy array to ensure that the maximum amount of roof space, energy and CO2 is offset, while ensuring that all energy generated by the system is consumed on site and not exported to the grid.
