World's largest, most advanced solar-powered boat in Ph
MANILA, Philippines - The world’s largest and most advanced solar-powered boat, M/S Tűranor Planet Solar, has arrived in Manila to promote solar power
Additional 12 centavos per kilowatt-hour to be added to power rates as a result of the feed-in tariff (FIT) to be precise, but it will ensure renewable energy development, making electricity generation cost go down minimum of 3-5 years, thats a lot better than what we currently have now which it has an uptrend statistics and it its not going down anytime soon. The FIT is a proven concept in some european countries which has the will to implement it, and other countries trying to adapt the same as a result. The alternative is carbon tax, you want carbon tax? FIT is not permanent, rates goes down in time as RE develops.It's a good thing DOE is not buying fully on Solar and Wind. They say it will further increase our power rates.
If you want to invest, you must be 2 steps ahead, you have to be there when the grid parity arrives and not like a bandwagon crowd trying to join the party when its there, because when that time comes, everyone would be asking our expertise and importing our solar panel technology.
1. Aside from electricity going down after 3-5 years,
2. The benefits are local jobs industry as we manufacture solar panels.
3. Export industry as one of our major exporting goods is solar panels.
4. You will have a cleaner environment. Less expense on medical cost and government hospitals.
5. We will be a leader, some asean countries will look at and not laughed at.
6. Once it gets cheaper, we can power all isolated provinces jumpstarting their economy.
7. Once it gets cheaper, households might be having their own independent power and sell excess to the grid. You my friend will sell electricity, and no longer buy it.
Of course if you are proposing a solution, maybe nuclear? but that wont happen even if we want to. Even thorium is good also, but go convince people and politicians.
