Renewable energy such as solar energy has become a trend overseas, especially in Western countries, as its usage is more cost-effective for individuals and businesses compared to fossil fuels. In Malaysia alone, we are currently counting on such energy source in order to contribute to our sustainability. Since energy cost has been rising steadily in the country, adjusting to solar energy is a good practice if we are aiming for cost-effective energy.
There are many things that you can do and use with solar energy panels. For example, it is a handy portable charger that allows you to charge up your devices anywhere at minimum cost as long as there is sunlight. As an alternative energy, this will help the country to save a lot of money on energy consumption.
Below are some of the benefits of having solar panels and using solar as an alternative energy source that everyone should know and consider to take into account.
Solar energy has also brought in technology advancement to our country with the introduction of many inventions that are previously impossible with past technologies. While it is never easy to introduce something new to the community, the amount of energy and cost solar energy will save will bring much more benefit than an inconvenience to everyone in the long run.
While it is true that the transition from a national dependency on fossil energy to solar power would involve millions of ringgits, we believe that the country will be able to yield much more returns in the long run. The country may be sceptical with this transition due to the current lack of knowledge and expertise in this field, but the benefits of solar energy over various fields such as farming and engineering are undeniable and worth investing into.
Large-scale solar projects in Malaysia will be used widely as TNB is involving itself to find cheaper and safer alternatives. The nation’s large scale solar power plant can be found in Sepang at the moment.
