What you need to know about solar power and balcony solar systems

Sunlight not only provides warmth but also electrical support to people. Solar technology is widely used around the world.

Solar energy has a lot of room for development

In Europe, residents and governments in countries such as Germany, Switzerland, and Austria have made significant progress in the adoption of solar technology due to the relative abundance of solar resources and high levels of government support.

The German government launched a solar subsidy program called “Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz”, or EEG for short. The program, which began in 2000, is designed to encourage private investment in solar panels. The amount of the subsidy depends on the length of time the panels are used, the installed capacity, and the form of energy storage. Currently, German solar subsidies amount to 0.15-0.18 euros per kilowatt hour for 20 years.

The Swiss government’s energy subsidy program consists of two forms: “Feed-in Tariff” and “Investment Grants. The former is a form of subsidy for the purchase of green electricity, while the latter is to provide financial support for purchasing solar panels and other clean energy equipment.

The Austrian government has provided financial support for solar energy storage to support the use of solar cell storage systems in homes.

Balcony solar systems with value

It is easy to see that there is a lot of room for growth in the solar industry. As a new energy industry, it is favored because it is less polluting and sustainable. Governments are also strongly supporting the development of this industry. Home balcony solar systems are widely used in this demand.

A balcony solar system can be installed on the balcony of a home, which not only makes efficient use of space but also increases the savings of the user by providing free electricity to the home continuously after the cost is removed. Popular balcony solar systems include lightweight flexible solar panels as well as rigid solar panels, which can be used with a micro-inverter to deliver solar power directly to the grid.

Rigid solar panels for balconies are also available in colored glass types, which can add new vitality to users’ lives compared to traditional monotonous colors. Not only does it meet its use value, but also its ornamental value. Solar panels are harmonized with the color palette of the home and are beautiful and coordinated.

However, it is essential to note that the regulations for installing balcony solar systems vary from country to country. There are also differences in its application in different countries and regions.

Some countries have certain restrictions on the height of solar systems. The height limit for balcony solar systems depends on local building codes and regulations.

For example, in New York City, USA, the height limit for balcony solar systems is 10 feet (about 3 meters). This is because of building height restrictions in New York City; therefore, the height of balcony solar systems is also limited.

Another example is in Hong Kong, China, where the government requires that the height of a balcony solar system cannot exceed half the height of the balcony railing. If the height of the balcony railing is 1 meter, the height limit for solar systems is 0.5 meters.

Height limits for solar systems can vary from region to region, so when considering installing a solar system on a balcony, you should first check your local building regulations and codes to determine the required height limit.

All in all, the solar industry is booming and balcony solar systems have a lot of potentials. Do you have a basic understanding of the solar industry and balcony solar systems?
