On-Grid/Off-Grid Systems Suitable for Your Business and Home

PSL7We all know that the sun is a very powerful energy source and thanks to it, we can harvest solar energy from its radiation. Science proved that the energy the sun provides for one hour is enough to provide global energy needs for one year. And since the sun is very generous especially to tropical countries, solar in the Philippines is definitely abundant particularly during the summer. There are three ways to harvest solar energy: on-grid or grid-tied, off-grid, and hybrid systems.

On-grid, also known as grid-tied, is the most common type of solar PV system. Grid-tied systems are connected to an electrical grid and allow households and businesses to harvest solar energy and electrical energy from the grid. When there is no demand for energy, the solar panels send excess electricity for use elsewhere. Owners then complete a net metering agreement, which allows households or even corporations to sell back excess electricity and use them as credits to lower next month’s electric bill.

IMG_20160114_111805On-grid systems, when upgraded to include a battery backup, become a hybrid system. These batteries are charged by both the solar panels and power grid and needs to be switched on either manually or with an automatic system to provide backup power for the building during an outage.

In line with the net metering agreement, distributors of electrical power such as Meralco has come up with a program to comply with the Renewable Energy Act of 2008, which allows the owner to have 100 kWp (kilowatt peak) installed solar panels under net metering.

Off-grid, on the other hand, is a solar system independent of an electric guild. Off-grid systems usually incorporate a battery, a backup source of energy, or sometimes both. They are more common in remote places where utility service is low. If you are ready to invest in solar energy, here are some pros and cons of both on-grid and off-grid solar systems:


On-grids are simpler than off-grids and they are the most cost-effective to install. And thanks to the net metering agreement, the excess energy may be used for later or be credited in the next month’s bill, letting the owner save money. They also work the best during summer. The downsides are, they don’t work during grid outage and they can’t gather energy during the night.


Off-grids are more reliable during a power grid outage because the energy is stored in the batteries. They can provide power when the grid is down and it can make the owner energy self-sufficient. Becoming energy self-sufficient is a form of security because power failures will not affect off-grid solar systems. However, off-grid systems are more complex to install. They require specialized equipment and caution must be exercised when setting them up. The owner must analyze the requirements so he could know how much to provide to cover the basic energy needs. The batteries, aside from being expensive, must also be monitored and they require regular check-up as well as periodic replacement.

Solar energy offers many benefits to the home and its residents. A reduction in electricity costs and usage are some of them but it depends on the type of solar PV system the owner will choose. And like with other things, a thorough analysis of the site, environment and budget must be done so that you will know what type of solar PV system is right for you.

The Truth Behind Solar Farms and Noise Pollution

photovoltaic-491702_1280Solar panels in the Philippines are believed to be costly because of their prices. Yes, it may be expensive but is a great investment for anyone wanting to add solar power to their resource pool. This goes especially for utility and commercial organizations who want to integrate renewable energy into their operations.

The weather in this country is only dry and wet, and during summer days, the temperature gradually increases which causes us to experience a tremendous heat.

This ties in well with the fact that a number of solar panels have emerged in the country. In places such as Batangas and Negros Oriental, solar farms had become a popular choice to contribute to the city or the region’s electrical needs. However, there were beliefs that solar farms produce noise. Let us try to understand whethersolar panels create noise pollution.

Do Solar Panels in the Philippines produce Noise Pollution?

The definition of noise by World Health Organization (WHO) is an ‘unwanted sound—can affect human health and well-being in a number of ways, including annoyance reaction, sleep disturbance, interference with communication, performance effects, effects on social behavior.’ As we grow older, we become annoyed with the noise around us which may cause certain disturbances for us and even sicknesses.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) conducted a study saying that the noise pollutants are the public utility vehicles such as tricycles, jeepneys, and motorcycles in the urbanized areas produced by their engines and honks. There is also a time range where noise is most polluted, this happens during the rush hours from 6am-10am and 4pm-7pm.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) teamed up to implement rules and regulations to prevent noise emissions in certain institutions. This will enable residents and commuters to avoid noise nuisance.

Noise in Solar Panels?                        

Other, solar company, manufactured a 160 hectare solar farm in Calatagan, Batangas, which is able to provide electricity to 100,000 houses in the area.  It is known as the largest solar farm in Luzon.

Another one in Cadiz, Negros Occidental with a 176-hectare land, is named as Southeast Asia’s largest solar farm and 7th largest in the world, facilitated by Helios Solar Energy Corporation partnered with Gregorio Araneta Incorporated (GAI) and Soleq Holdings Incorporated.

These solar farms cost billions of pesos and ensure to demonstrate innovative developments for the betterment of the Philippines through generating power and renewable energy to enrich the lives of Filipinos.

The high price tag that came with completing these projects ensured quality. It is said that these solar farms do not emit noise nor emission. Location is also critical in making solar farms and the locations of these solar farms are far away from the urbanized areas. So it is assured that the solar farms do not cause noise pollution and avoid disturbing people.

Soon enough, the prices of solar panels in the Philippines will become cheaper wherein people will have easier access to own their personal solar panels in their homes and different establishments. This is strongly a great investment, not only does it renew energy; you get to save up on your electrical bills too! PhilSOLAR is one of the many renowned solar powered companies you can go to. Invest now and enrich your future.

Filipino Solar Panels: What role can the Philippines have in solar energy?

The city of Manila, Philippines welcomed the world’s largest solar powered boat, the MS Turanor this past July.  Manila was one of the few Asian stops the ship was to make on its first journey around the world, using no other power other than energy from the sun.  The ship sails under the Swiss flag but, the most important part of the MS Turanor, the solar panels, were made in a SunPowerplant near Manila.

Citizens and important political leaders of the Philippines joined the 4,500 Filipino employees of PlanetSolar in welcoming the MS Turanor.  Why is the stopover in Manila so important to the people of the Philippines?  Articles written in Philippine Daily Inquirer and ABS CBN News express the excitement of the Philippine government and its people in having a ship of this type and size have its solar panels completely made in the Philippines.

The article in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Philippine-Made Batteries Propel Solar Powered Vessel by Amy R. Remo, not only covers the news of the MS Turanor, but also gives insight as to where the Philippine government stands in solar power and its production.  “The Philippine stop was recognition of the country’s strong support for renewable energy,” states the article.  According to the article, the Philippine government plans to increase renewable energy use by threefold in the next 20 years through the Department of Energy.

“You sense that this is built by the Philippines’ ingenuity,” Rafael Domjan, the president of PlanetSolar, the company who built the MS, tells ABS CBN News in this article.  It is obvious that the Philippines considers the making of the solar panels on this boat as a huge step for the country to move forward both in technology and in this ever increasing “global” world.

The Philippines, have good reason to think of this in that way, too.  4,500 Philippine people were employed in a country whose main source of income comes from overseas Philippine citizens sending money back to their families in the homeland.  Solar energy definitely has its benefits for the Philippines and other countries like it.

MS Turanor; world’s largest, entirely solar powered boat

The people of the Philippines seem to think that this is a great feat but not many other people seem to think the same.  In the blog-like website by PlanetSolar that gives regular updates on the whereabouts of the MS Turanor, Manila is only mentioned as being a stop where “SunPower employees will welcome ‘their’ solar panels.”  It seems that American and Dutch based companies such as SunPower and PlanetSolar see the Philippines as a place to make parts for their projects like the MS Turanor.  It was foreign, rich, and Western companies who put this project in the Philippines, so how much control would the Philippines have in their role to move towards solar energy?  If the Philippines has to rely on other countries for funding and projects like these, the Philippines could remain dependent on foreign income.  If the government plans to move towards renewable energy on its own, then the Philippines has a bright future in solar power.
