Solar Panels - Simulation of a 3KW system


We carry on with our voyage through the 5-Star Municipalities. Today it is the turn of the Municipalities of Olivadi, San Vito sullo Ionio and Cenadi in the Catanzaro Province. Ours is the Country of Sunshine and we had better enjoy it before it gets privatised and listed on the Stock Exchange. They will never give up, but neither will we.

"Those public administrations that adopt emission reduction policies also contribute to reducing public spending. The Municipalities of Olivadi, San Vito sullo Ionio and Cenadi, adjacent towns in Catanzaro Province, have been promoting a project called: “Sun, environment, savings”.
We could call this project “The obvious solution” because it begins with a very simple idea, namely, to form a group in order to gain the maximum benefit from the installation of solar panels and photovoltaic cells. More than 300 plants are to be installed in these three Municipal districts, which means that the supplier was able to give the buyers otherwise unthinkable discounts. The construction of the plant will cost the residents nothing, thanks to an agreement that the Municipalities have come to with the Banca di Credito Cooperativo Centro Calabria of San Vito sullo Ionio, a letter of understanding by which the bank has committed itself to fully finance both the purchase price and installation cost of the panels, at a fixed interest rate of 5.90%. Every resident will have access to clean, self-produced energy, thereby drastically reducing his or her individual utility bills. The loan will be paid off in six-monthly instalments over a maximum of 14 years and the money to do this will come from the incentive tariff credits that the local utility company will pay out during the year into banking accounts that each resident user will be required to open at the bank.
With these payments that the Electricity Supply Company will be paying back to the residents, based on the amount of power generated over a period of twenty years, the total cost of the plant will be amortised within 12-14 years, which means that, over time, in addition to enjoying free power, the residents will receive part of the incentive payments. Thereafter, with effect from the twelfth-fourteenth year onwards, the residents will receive the entire incentive payment, which amounts to some 600 Euro per year for every KWp of installed photovoltaic cell.
As regards the installation of the solar panels, an agreement has been entered into with G.F.C. – TER, which submitted the best quotation in terms of quality vs price for the supply of a turnkey plant and included insurance cover for a period of 14 years and free maintenance on the plant for 5 years.

Furthermore, the “Sun-Environment-Savings” project offers dual benefits in that it saves money by lowering the cost of electricity, plus it reduces greenhouse gas emissions to the tune of 1,000Kg of CO2 for every KWp of installed photovoltaic cell."

How much do you know about China?
China PV Industry, under the boost of International Market challenges and the implementation of domestic policies, has gradually start to grow and is very likely to emerge soon as one of the greatest solar energy production bases in the world. For this reason properly understand what´s going on in such a big Country could make the difference between closing that deal and catching the next plane home

Interesting entry Mr.Grillo!

More and more people are finally becoming aware that green energy is necessary if we want to continue to live on this planet I think we are witnessing a green revolution. Governments are looking at renewable energy as one of the most safe and stable investment, and the sector is booming, in the West as well as in the East.China's PV Industry is booming and is very likely to become the largest supplier of photovoltaic panel in the world very soon.

Do you want to know what's really going on in China's PV Industry?

lo sviluppo sostenabile e lo ultralibéralisme sono puramente contradittori. Qui, di numeroso costi sono mascherati:
- impatto ambientale di produzione
- impatto ambientale di riciclaggio

È in fondo alla campagna di Campania che si intende fuggire tutti questi prodotti tossici nel 2030?

legge 1: non una produzione di pannelli fotovoltaica senza acquisizione preliminare pagata di un'autorizzazione di riciclaggio
legge 2: eco-condizione dell'abbuono fiscale alle sole fine di miglioramento della casa

(scusate per il mio italiano)
