Awareness on sustainable energy and living has been increasing globally, with the demand for solar systems rising year-on-year, with an expected growth of 20% in 2020. Indeed, solar panels do not create waste or emissions, and the energy they produce is clean and renewable. According to German-based think tank “Agora Energiewende”, the declining cost of solar will make it the cheapest source of electricity in just 10 years’ time. As Mr. Phil Lee clearly stated: “Solar systems have sustainable benefits for both customers and the environment. These benefits are tangible both on short and long terms. Indeed, on the short term, solar energy usage directly reflects on cost saving in electricity bills while on the long term, solar energy will create and improve sustainable environment by reducing C02 emissions, promoting clean and renewable energy, and a better air quality”.
