3 reasons why roof-top solar is the future of energy

June 2022

Solar is now the cheapest form of electricity on the planet

From 2010-2019, solar received half of the world’s total $2.6 trillion investment into clean energy and consequently added more capacity to the grid than any other energy source. In 2019, 638 GW of net capacity was added to solar versus only 487 GW for wind, 283 GW for hydro, and -7 GW for nuclear.

The Sleeping Catalyst for Net Zero: Small Scale Solar

November 2020

One of the more commonly discussed catch 22s, holding back the growth of the solar sector, is the fact that panels have to go somewhere. And too commonly, they are in the form of large-scale, ground mounted solar. A central reason for this is that they are easier to fund than rooftop solar as they more predictable. This is due to the conversely transient nature of tenancy, leases, and the changes-of-hands common with rooftop ownership. Moreover, large scale solar projects are able to achieve carbon emergency targets in one go. Finally, they are thought of as cheaper, due to their solar economies of scale.
