The average consumption of a Spanish household is 2,992 kWh per year. To generate that much energy today, 807 tons of CO2 have to be released into the atmosphere. Ultimately, all this amount of polluting emissions is a serious threat to the environment. But fortunately, thanks to the advantages of solar energy we can avoid this serious problem.
Any person or institution can now install solar panels on the roofs of their buildings for the self-consumption of electricity. Installing 9 photovoltaic plants on your roof (of an approximate area of 15 m2) the grid will receive the equivalent of the energy your house consumes in a year in a clean and sustainable way.
Over the next few years renewable energies, including photovoltaic, are going to be the engine of change in the energy model. In the future, the current centralized model will be abandoned, where there are big generation points that produce electric energy, which then must be transported by complex distribution networks. And a distributed model, also known as Smart Grid, will be adopted, which will be cleaner and more efficient than the current one.
These new power grids have the following advantages:
Installing photovoltaic panels on the roof of your home or industrial building will not only be reducing the energy impact on the environment, but also will contribute to the development of the sustainable energy model of the future.
