Sa ato nang nasayran, ang Committee on Environment sa Konseho sa dakbayan, mi-rekomendar paggamit sa Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Technology System isip lain nga tinubdan sa elektrisidad sa tanang building nga iya sa city government.

Matud ni Konsehal Joel Garganera, chairman sa maong komite: “In this Committee Report, we favourably endorse the adoption of an eco-friendly and economically beneficial generation of energy with the use of Solar Photovoltaic Technology System.” Unsa man kining solar technology? Sa tinamban nga pagsabot, enerhiya kini gikan sa silang sa adlaw. Ania kining gikan sa internet: “Solar technologies convert sunlight into electrical energy either through photovoltaic (PV) panels or through mirrors that concentrate solar radiation . This energy can be used to generate electricity or be stored in batteries or thermal storage.”

Klaro? Unya, aduna kunoy upat ka klase sa solar technology: “The most commonly used solar technologies for homes and businesses are solar photovoltaics for electricity, passive solar design for space heating and cooling, and solar water heating.” Maka-eksplikar si Joel niini.

How Does Solar Work?  “The amount of sunlight that strikes the earth’s surface in an hour and a half is enough to handle the entire world’s energy consumption for a full year.” Ngilngiga no?

Akong tan-aw, ang most common nga gigamit (atong makita sa mga atop) ang PV panels. “This energy can be used to generate electricity or be stored in batteries or thermal storage.

“Solar energy can help to reduce the cost of electricity, contribute to a resilient electrical grid, create jobs and spur economic growth, generate back-up power for nighttime and outages when paired with storage, and operate at similar efficiency on both small and large scale.”

Ang gasto? “A number of non-hardware costs, known as soft costs, also impact the cost of solar energy. These costs include permitting, financing, and installing solar, as well as the expenses solar companies incur to acquire new customers, pay suppliers, and cover their bottom line. For rooftop solar energy systems, soft costs represent the largest share of total costs.”

So, sa mga panel nga i-install sa atop, medyo mahal ang cost. Ug matud pa, dugay kitang makabawi sa investment nga atong igasto pagpa-install sa panel. Duna akoy nailhan nga ang iyang gihimo, tungod kay wala man siya maka-fully pa-install sa mga panel, gumikan sa ka-mahal, iyang puli-polihan paggamit ang solar energy ug ang Visayan Electric.

Sa America? “Solar energy systems come in all shapes and sizes. Residential systems are found on rooftops across the United States, and businesses are also opting to install solar panels. Utilities, too, are building large solar power plants to provide energy to all customers connected to the grid.”

Dugang sa committee report on the Solar Technology System: “It helps produce electricity by focusing on solar radiation to convert solar energy and lessen our dependence on fossil fuel considering that it obtains clean and pure energy from the sun.” Kanus-a man ni? Maayo nga maoy mag-una ang city hall niini, unya magpakutay na lang ang mga residences sa excess nga electricity sa city hall. Mahimo ba ni, Joel?
