Once upon a time, the world was swinging swiftly, hotels were minting profits, conventional energy sources and renewable energy sources debate was the hot topic, almost each and everyone was planning their next trip to an exotic and happening place, 9 to 6 jobs was the thing which used to run the livelihood of almost 65% population.
And suddenly - a virus brought the whole world to its knees, and to be very honest the hotel and hospitality sector was in the face of the covid-19 pandemic, their profits went to zero, and apps like air BnB which used to offer low-cost affordable accommodations were on the sudden rise, in this sudden setback, hotel industry needed to have some ways which can keep their investment and daily cost low without compromising the real exotic experience they offer and controlling the daily energy consumption and procuring that on a relatively lower cost with the help of solar panels has helped them achieved the goal.
Let’s have a bit of clarity on the same and check out the some of the advantages of solar panels for the hotel & hospitality industry
Rooftop solar plants can provide power during load-shedding, ensuring that critical loads remain operational at all times. Please note, that not all solar plant configurations are capable of supplying power during load shedding.
Rooftop solar power has an avg cost of rs. 5.5-6/KWh (or less), which is significantly cheaper than conventional power's avg cost of rs. 18/kWh (or more). Furthermore, unlike conventional power, your energy costs are now fixed for the next 25 years.
Because a solar power plant has no moving parts, it will provide consistent power for the next 25 years or more.
Low-cost maintenance cost
A solar plant requires very little upkeep from the energy consumer. Solar panels can be installed on a variety of roofs, including covered parking lots, as long as the structure can support the weight of the panels. They are also very scalable, with rooftop plants ranging from less than 1 kW to more than 1 MW in capacity.
But what about the rooftop space, do you have that much space to get these panels installed?
The capacity of a solar plant that can be built in a hotel may be limited due to a lack of adequate shadow-free rooftop space. As a general rule, 100 SF of shade-free roof area is required for 1 kW of solar panels. Due to insufficient roof area, the capacity of the solar plant on your roof may be insufficient to meet only a portion of your electrical load. Also, the initial cost of installation of solar panels is a very higher side.
So how to meet these challenges on the ground level
Top ways to go solar without installing solar panels at hotels
Solar power converters/adapter - This is a very simple and inexpensive way to connect to the solar power grid without owning a power plant. All you need to do is have the ability to purchase what you require. This device monitors your average daily energy consumption and purchases energy from certified solar farms on your behalf. It employs a smart outlet adaptor, which measures the amount of electricity drawn from a wall outlet and converts it to solar power by purchasing small fractions of a solar energy certificate. Rather than buying the entire grid, this is a more cost-effective method of purchasing solar power in modest increments.
Peer-to-peer solar sharing networks - Borrow it if you can't afford to install it on your rooftop. It is a better way to own something than to share it. Solar energy may be shared by those who live in close quarters and produce in excess. For a price, a sun partner can use solar electricity from a sun host who has put panels on their roof. This sort of solar sharing is more customized and convenient since you receive energy directly from producers and will never run out of energy as long as your host has it.
Solar-powered grid - The world is shifting greatly toward renewable energy, and governments are establishing solar farm projects to power their countries as a first step. These programs are solely for the benefit of the public and are funded by private businesses. These solar farms, which can be as large as an airport, provide electricity to entire cities. All that is required is to connect to the grid in the same way that you would connect to a regular electric grid to enjoy energy at very low prices.
Portable solar generator - Portable solar generators are equipment that turns sunlight into electricity (An conventional alternative to solar plants). Another major advantage of these machines is that they are portable, allowing you to transport them anywhere you want at your leisure. Many aspects must be addressed while seeking an ideal solar-powered generator.
These include the size of the generator, the time it takes to charge the battery, the electrical capacity of the battery, the weight of the generator, and the planned use of the generator.
