Coming Home to Big Savings

 
3kW System Installation

Our client, a young OFW, learned about the power of solar panels while working in the Middle East, and wanted to bring the same technology into his family home in Las Piñas. Their monthly electric bill used to reach around Php8,000 as they usually stay at home and make regular use of their appliances, including a 1.5HP air conditioner.

During one of his short visits home in 2017, our client decided to install a 3kW system. And just like that, their panels were installed in just one day and they were saving money immediately! Since then, their monthly bill has decreased 40% to just Php4,700—providing savings of around Php3,300 monthly and an estimated Php40,000 annually—more than the cost of a flight back home.

Summertime Savings

 
5kW System Installation

A young, working dad was looking for a way to decrease their household’s expenses, especially during the summer. Their electricity bill shoots up during these warm months as his kids stay at home for most of the day. Their monthly bill averages at Php18,000 but goes up to Php20,000 due to the more frequent use of the large air-conditioner, refrigerators, and pumps.

Early on in the season, he decided to do some preparations and had our team install a 5kW system into their home. In just 2 months, they noticed that their bill had significantly gone below Php14,000 – saving them up to Php6,000 during their peak months.

A Check-up for the Home

 
5kW System Installation

Our clients, married doctors living in Marikina, wanted to have a cleaner, lower-cost energy option for their household. With news of growing energy costs, they were concerned about constantly having their 2HP air conditioner turned on, as well as two large refrigerators, a water pump, and other household appliances—for a total bill of around Php15,000 per month, and rising.

After some consultation, they decided to invest in a 5kW system—the recommended size to fit their household’s needs. Despite their busy schedules, our clients found just a day to have their new system installed. Since then, their monthly bill has decreased to Php9,000—for savings of around Php6,000 a month, or Php70,000 a year! That’s 40% off their past utility bills!

Building a Greener Home

 
10kW System Installation

Our client was a family building their new home in Valenzuela. Right at the start, they wanted to optimize the roof deck for a solar system that could help them save in the long run. After all, they were estimating their monthly bill to reach Php20,000 due to the use of multiple air-conditioners, computers, washing machines, refrigerators, and other home appliances.

Since it was a large working space, they wanted to maximize every inch and install a system that could give them the most savings. In the end, they decided to go big and enroll into net metering. By installing a system that produced more than what they normally consumed, they could sell the excess energy and have additional discounts in their final bill.

Instead of the Php20,000 monthly estimate, their current predication has dropped to just Php9,500 with over 50% in savings! That’s more than Php120,000 saved annually in their green home.
