We’ve been hearing a lot about Solar Energy in recent years – we’ve also heard about saving money with Solar Energy – but is it all just hype?
Renewable Energy is the way forward but you might be wondering whether investing in Solar Panels is the best choice for you, or perhaps you are a bit skeptical about it all… is it worth the money? How will it benefit me? How will I be saving money with Solar Energy? How efficient is it? Will money be spent on maintenance?
Let’s answer your questions and reassure you that becoming eco-friendly is the way to go.
Is it a reliable investment ?
Firstly let’s just clarify that Solar Energy systems still gain energy even on a cloudy day, it does not have to be in direct sunlight all day, so you wont be wasting money if the weather happens to be awful frequently. However, we are lucky here in Bahrain that the sun loves to be out and about – did you know on average we enjoy 8 months of sunny days!
Is it worth the money? How will it benefit me? How will I be saving money with Solar Energy?
Is it worth the money? Yes it is! It’s great to be energy independent. Once you install your Solar Panels they will last for approximately 25 years, the more you invest in panels the more money you will save.
For instance, 8 panels will cost 480BD but you will save 100.572BD a year and if you buy 100 panels it will cost 6,000BD, while you will be saving 1,257.672BD a year, so the money spent will be worth it, consider it as a great long term investment.
Another reason why you would want to consider Solar Energy is because utility companies depend themselves on oil, coal and other fossil fuels which means utility rates are unpredictable and rise. However, by installing Solar Panels you secure yourself a low and most importantly predictable electricity cost which means that your savings can continue to grow throughout the years.
Will I be spending more money on maintenance?
You may be telling yourself “Well it can’t be possible to save that much money. Probably a lot of money will be spent on maintenance.” But that’s incorrect! The great thing about Solar Power systems is that they require a very small amount of maintenance so you do not have to worry about spending extra money to upkeep them.
Saving Money with Solar Energy is a sure thing! Its up to you to decide just how much you are willing to spend to save.
Hello, we are Solar One. We are Bahrain’s first Solar PV Panel production facility. So, who are we? What do we do? Why does it matter? How can we help you?
We are local. We are a Bahraini borne, Bahraini run company. We bring what we have learnt during state of the art, rigorous training from our friends in Italy to our home. We hold our facility and machinery to international standards. With worldwide expertise coming to Bahrain, sustainable reliability is our defined outlook. By applying our knowledge, our Bahraini workforce will run our Solar PV Panel production facility. Bahrainis at home and at work will benefit from it.
From Bahrain, for Bahrain – Manufacturing Bahrain’s very own Solar PV Panels
Our mission is to produce high quality Solar PV Panels in Bahrain using state of the art technology. To provide clean, free energy for everyone. Bahrain is one of the most sun-rich areas on our planet. When it comes to energy, our near constant sunny days are our biggest renewable asset. Our vision is to lead the way in the Renewable Energy industry in Bahrain, and help steer the country towards meeting and exceeding its climate goals. We plan to use our environment to our advantage. We do this by harnessing the natural energy of the streaming desert sunlight. We will use Solar Energy to power local homes and businesses while helping the planet. A clean, renewable and sustainable energy alternative.
Renewable Energy is an industry in its infancy in the region. The Middle East is an area that is traditionally reliant on oil and natural gas for power. But, oil and gas are non-renewable. Once we run out, that’s it. A huge benefit of Solar Energy is that it is renewable – as long as we are orbiting the sun, we can make use of its energy. Another advantage is that Solar Energy is clean. No drilling, fracking or mining has to take place to make use of it. Like plants that use the sun to photosynthesize, we can spread our leaves and use the energy of the sun’s rays. What are our leaves? Solar PV Panels – manufactured in Bahrain – used across the globe.
By using Solar Energy we are drastically reducing Bahrain’s carbon footprint. We estimate that with our Solar PV Panel manufacturing efforts, we are eliminating 20,000 tonnes of carbon per year, the same as taking 4,400 cars off the road.
Our facility’s manufacturing capacity is 60,000 panels per year. This is equal to producing 15 MegaWatts of power. Our prices are comparable to those available in China or India, without the import cost. This is because the Solar PV Panels are manufactured and assembled in Bahrain.
We are able to make panels of different sizes to suit different energy needs. Panel sizes range from 1 Watt to 350 Watt. 250 Watt is the standard size for the industry. Being able to tailor make panels makes Solar One adaptable to your unique energy needs. Solar One is positioned to anticipate and facilitate a shift towards Renewable Energy. Solar Power will prove to be the Bahraini household or business’ economical choice.
After the utilities subsidy in Bahrain lifts, the proposed rate of energy will be 28 fils per kWh. At this rate, if you install just 8 solar panels onto a building, you stand to save around 8 BD per month. This totals approximately to 100BD per year!
We are Solar One. We are Bahrain’s first Solar PV Panel manufacturing facility. We help you take Solar Energy and turn it into clean, renewable power for your homes and businesses.
We are Solar One and we are putting power back in the hands of the people.
