Sunshine is free, clean and durable. In the Caribbean the sun shines over 3000 hours per year. In comparison, in the Netherlands the sun shines an average of 1,500 hours per year. In the Netherlands more and more organizations and households produce green electricity using solar panels. Bonaire is in this trend, despite our sublime conditions, far behind. Due to years of monopoly by electricity supplier WEB NV, self-generating solar energy and return of excess energy to the grid was not allowed.
By generating energy you save huge on your energy bill and contribute to a better environment.
Solar panel systems offer a reliable and sustainable alternative. The prices of solar panels has fallen sharply in recent years while energy prices have only risen. Currently, the payback period on Bonaire of a PV system is between 2 and 3 years. While the system has a service life of 25 to 30 years! The return at the end of this period is huge!
Besides the classic blue panels, Q-Solar now also offers the new generation of panels, thin-film panels. These panels are smaller in size but have a higher efficiency. These plants supply in our local conditions up to 22% more energy than panels from the first generation. These panels are black and thus help create a more beautiful look of your home. We have installed these panels in our test yard.

ON THE ROOF, WHERE?
It is important to determine where the solar panels must be installed on the roof. Solar panels do not necessarily have to be directed to the south, but it is the most appropriate direction. East and west are also great. The important thing is that there is sufficient daylight directly on the panels. Panels that are installed in the shade will after all have a lower energy yield. Before you choose solar panels it is important that we specify the place where the solar panels will be placed.
