Cebu Green Economy Series Renewable Energy Summit Harness the Power of the Sun
Solar Power Myths MYTH #1 Solar power devices need more energy to manufacture than they actually produce in their lifetime. FACT: INCORRECT Energy payback for PV power is less than 4 years A system will produce more energy then it consumes over its lifetime
Solar Power Myths MYTH #2 Solar Power manufacturing produces more pollution than is offset by its use FACT: INCORRECT A PV system eliminates half a tonne of sulfer dioxide pollution from the air and 600 pounds of nitrogen oxides.
Solar Power Myths MYTH #3 Solar power is too expensive for widespread usage FACT: INCORRECT Solar PV has declined in price every year since development In some countries, solar has become cheaper than conventional electricity supply
Solar Power Myths MYTH #4 Solar power won't work where I live. FACT: INCORRECT Solar PV depends on light, not heat and this light does not need to be direct Can work on any home business or property
Beyond Building Energy Australia's leading manufacturer, supplier and installer of quality solar power equipment Energy that doesn't cost the earth Industry leading warranties Global accreditation Offices in Australia, UK, USA, Asia and Italy
Supporting a stable Solar Sector Creates local direct and indirect employment Utilises a Clean Green Renewable resource Has little ongoing maintenance costs Reduces the country’s carbon emissions Reduces countries dependency on fossil fuels
