WHO CAN INSTALL A SOLAR PANEL SYSTEM?
In reality, anyone who wants to generate sustainable energy is a candidate for the photovoltaic installation; however, the most benefited are those with a high energy consumption rate or DAC (High Consumption Domestic) with electricity bills of $ 2,000 pesos or more, as well as businesses that want to save operating expenses up to 95%, even industries with a PDBT or GDMT rate.
ON GRID PHOTOVOLTAIC SYSTEMS
The Photovoltaic Installations connected to the electricity network represent the majority of the photovoltaic installations currently installed in the world (in 2015). It is a connection model between a small producer of renewable electric energy for self-consumption (wind or photovoltaic) and the general electricity network, in which there is an exchange of electricity.
Under this scheme, a small producer installs photovoltaic solar panels in his home or company to produce a volume of electricity that he consumes directly in his house. At the moment in which its photovoltaic solar panels produce more electricity than it consumes, the small producer dumps the surplus into the general electricity grid.
On the other hand, in times when you need electricity and the photovoltaic panels are not working, the small producer can take the energy he needs from the electricity grid. In this scheme, the small producer does not have a battery where he stores the energy, but he uses the electrical network as a support for the moments when he can not generate electricity himself. All the injections of electricity into the network by the small producer, as well as the amount that this takes from the network are accounted for by a double-sense counter.
Solar arquitecture: solar parkings (carport)
Solar parks are gaining popularity within industries in Mexico because they take advantage of parking space to generate energy and save, while providing shade. There are several considerations that must be taken into account when installing this type of solar architecture: the orientation of the light, the height for vehicular access, the number of solar modules, the estimated generation of energy that the home or the The company wants to cover for its self-consumption, are some of the points to be solved by the engineering team.
In 2015, the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, promulgated the Energy Reform as part of his international commitments to reduce CO2 emissions and with it the damages of the greenhouse effect in the country, with the goals established in the percentage of clean energies in electricity generation: 25% in 2018, 30% in 2021, and 35% in 2024. Based on this, since 2018 industries that consume more than 1 megawatt are encouraged to generate at least 5% of its consumption by means of clean energies.
Therefore, solar energy, and specifically, this type of architecture, is a good alternative for industries with enough space in their parking and already have a percentage planned for their generation by means of solar panels, or 5%, 10%, 20% or more.
