With the Covid-19 outbreak hitting the world with a plethora of challenges, the solar industry is also not spared. With a shortage of manpower, project delays and investments being cancelled, many solar companies are currently putting business strategies on hold while facing pressures of a potential financial drain.
Before installing solar panels onto your rooftop, you will probably be considering many key factors such as suitability, cost, energy efficiency and aesthetics. While these are major considerations to take note of, the type of solar panels you choose is the determining factor affecting the outcome of all other factors.
Singapore’s energy market has progressed significantly and undergone major restructuring over the last few decades. Previously relying on oil, Singapore now uses natural gas to generate cleaner electricity. Additionally, the use of solar energy has been on the rise, with more emphasis on its benefits on the environment.
With the majority of roofs in the world still without solar, the scalability of machine learning models in identifying and assessing rooftops for solar is immense, unlike traditional modeling approaches. Solar AI partners with Omdena and more than 30 AI engineers to pull this off.
The free online tool allows home and building owners to easily estimate the solar potential, cost savings and environmental impact of installing solar panels on their roofs.
With increasing demand for electricity and the resultant higher electricity bills, you might want to consider installing solar panels to reduce your costs. Besides the long term cost benefits, it also brings immense benefits to our environment.
So, how much exactly will it cost you to install solar?
