Our roof has been hidden for as long as I can remember because we didn’t know what to make of it. We initially envisioned it to be a roof deck where we can hold intimate gatherings but that was not approved so we just left it alone and hid it. We continued to work on the rest of our home and we always hoped for a better way to present our roof and toyed on a variety of ideas like a roof garden, etc. I was thrilled to get a message from Sara Black one of our favorite photographers, about her new venture that pertains also to being an environmentally conscious individual. Our short exchanges paved a way for a whole new way of appreciating our roof!
Hello, solar panels! I can’t believe we could finally chip off the film that we used to cover our roof! Finally, we had something to be proud of. Since my family and I have known and worked with Sara for more than ten years, it was easy to entrust to her and her brother, our solar panel needs. Sara and Alex Black came full force with their Yes! Solar Philippines team and worked on our roof for just one whole day after a series of visits to make sure all was in place and our roof ready for installation.
I had always wanted to move towards having solar panels and it happened sooner than expected. After having given our electric bills so that it could be studied by the Yes! Solar Philippines team, they presented us their proposal for what suits our family’s electrical consumption.
Sara relayed that our system will still be on Meralco, and it is called a grid-tied system. This decreases our electricity bill by replacing some of our Meralco supplied electricity with power generated from your solar system. According to Sara, the estimated savings from this system over 20 years is Pesos 1,200,000.00!!
I am overjoyed by the savings we have been experiencing just after a couple of months of having installed the solar panels but I am even more ecstatic about the fact that with a 3 kilowatt grid-tied solar system, this is what it entails in terms of it’s effect on the environment:
Not only do we save in so many ways, we also are now able to enjoy the view from our top floor!
Anthony and I continue to find ways to not only improve our lives but to help improve the lives of others as well.
We know that installing solar panels is one way to help minimise our family’s electrical costs. More importantly, we want to make a stand on making sure we help make the world a better place.
