Residential use of energy accounts for almost forty percent of total energy use globally. Residential sector benefits from renewable energy in terms of energy generation that produces no greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels.
Our homes are places where we want to feel safe and comfortable. Achieving that means being able to enjoy all the comforts of modern living on demand. Lighting, television, domestic appliances and mobile phones all require residential properties to have access to a reliable, consistent and affordable source of power.
Freeing householders to generate and store their own electricity from renewable sources such as the sun allows people to take control of their own power needs and reduce their electricity bills at the same time.
And since residential energy demands make up nearly 40% of global energy use, generating the power required from zero-carbon energy sources like solar makes good sense for the planet too.
