The Future of Energy Autonomy: Balcony Solar Panels as Part of Your Energy Plan

2023-07-12

The Future of Energy Autonomy with Balcony Solar Panels

Balcony power systems are a uniquely individual contribution to one's personal energy transition. As society depends on fossil fuels, so are we individually. With a balcony power system, everyone has the opportunity to optimize their own energy plan, gain some independence from the energy market, and at the same time, make a valuable contribution to the environment.

 

What Does Energy Autonomy Mean in the Modern World?

Energy autonomy in the modern world has many faces. For many, it means liberation from the continuously rising energy prices. Generating one's own energy protects us from the market prices of major suppliers. This protection is becoming increasingly important for private households, due to the increasingly unstable global political situation and the associated uncertain supply chains that often lead to production delays and rising prices.

Another very important point is environmental protection. The impacts of climate change have become increasingly evident in recent years. Droughts, dry spells, and significant temperature fluctuations increase energy demand during the summer in our regions. However, these droughts often mean there is not enough water to cool power plants, thus increasing the likelihood of so-called blackouts. Every kilowatt-hour generated outside of power plants helps ensure energy production stability and consumes fewer fossil fuels.

It is also true that without storing the excess energy produced from renewable sources, about 30 to 40 percent of the energy is lost due to lack of demand. This fact is often overlooked by many solar module providers. Nevertheless, the purchase is worthwhile as the savings from the electricity produced can amortize the investment after a few years, and makes you somewhat independent of energy suppliers throughout the system's life. Energy storage can provide a solution to this issue. However, the currently available storage solutions often come with defects. Therefore, special caution is needed when purchasing a power storage unit. Our company stands for transparency and open communication.

The goal of our endeavors is to produce mature products that represent the current state of technology and provide maximum benefits to our customers. Despite some shortcomings in the overall concept of individual energy production, we have reached a point where the installation of balcony power systems already pays off. Our company philosophy includes addressing both the positive achievements and the pain points, as this is the only way problems can be tackled and solved.

 

Benefits of Integrating Balcony Solar Panels into Your Energy Plan

The benefits of balcony power systems are overwhelming. They are not intended to create complete power autonomy but to make a valuable contribution to energy supply. Their advantages include easy installation and operation, minimal bureaucracy, and the option to purchase a balcony solar system as a complete set, which operates on a plug-and-play basis. Plug and play means that the system is mounted and connected directly to a normal household socket without the need for professional installation. While nearly all other electrical installations must be operated by a certified electrician, you can completely set up and operate the balcony power system on your own. The bureaucratic effort is limited to registering the system with your energy provider. The operation as well as the maintenance and care are very simple.

Another important point to highlight is the direct result of installing and operating a balcony power system. From the moment of activation, the balcony power system has a positive impact on your electricity bill. Directly and effortlessly. As soon as it gets light and the sun shines, electricity flows into the circuit of your apartment or house and is used by your electrical appliances. Every kilowatt-hour saved is money that stays in your account.

 

Technological Advances and Performance of Balcony Solar Modules

Only a few years ago, balcony solar modules were for enthusiasts, but today, sophisticated complete solutions are available for everyone. This is a significant advancement, as special technical knowledge is no longer necessary for the end consumer to operate a balcony power system. Our products are designed so that the individual components—solar modules, microinverters, and the means for setup and installation—are optimally coordinated. As previously mentioned, no special skills are needed to assemble, install, and operate the systems.

 

How Balcony Solar Modules Contribute to Sustainability

The benefits of solar modules also extend to sustainability. The modules themselves can be recycled by about 95 percent, making them a valuable resource after their lifespan. During their typically several decades-long service life, they also feed significantly more energy into the grid than is needed for their production.
