Vast open areas overlooked — In most urban precincts, vast open areas have sun exposure ideal for solar arrays. These include shopping centres, parking lots, rooftops, and many commercial & industrial sites.
Less impact on the environment — Cities are often overlooked for utility-scale solar power generation.
Closer to the consumer — It makes sense to develop renewable power generation closer to where it is consumed, with less electrical transmission loss.
Faster process — The deployment of solar arrays on large buildings is faster as the structure is already there. The approval process is shorter as it does not impact residential areas due to location. Similarly, solar canopies over parking lots protect the public from the sun and rain.
Quicker deployment — These applications could be operational and profitable in less than 12 months compared to regional solar farms.
