FPSS launches first residential solar kitFirst Philec Solar Solutions
(FPSS) has launched the first solar technology kit for residential and small-scale commercial use.
The company offers onekilowatt (kW) grid-tied systems, one-kW off-grid systems and 10-kW grid-tied systems. The one-kW grid-tied and offgrid systems intended for residential use could last for more than 20 years while entailing low operational costs.
“We believe that the market is ripe to appreciate the energy that comes from the sun, more so value the benefits that it delivers, such as home value appreciation, environment preservation and savings generation from electric consumption,” said FPSS president Danilo Lachica. “The benefits of the investment for such a kit far outweigh the cost that will be incurred upon purchase. The future is worth going to this direction wherein zero fuel and zero wastage is applied.”
The system allows solar panels installed on roofs to convert the sun’s energy into electrical energy through an inverter that converts the DC output of solar power into AC to power appliances. Excess energy is sent back into a grid, reducing overall electrical consumption.
