This is an open discussion Iâ€™m asking the community to participate and let us share our knowledge on this very important, need of the time issue!
1:00 PM today, right on dot as ever, the light went away for an hour – load shedding. But Iâ€™m quite comfortable today! Fans, some lights, peripherals like router, modem, desktop PCs used by the staff etc. are working on a 3kva refurbished APC UPS powered by 4, 92 amp batteries. This is one investment one had to make for the minimal working conditions.
But this raises a very important question: What other options do we have for Alternative Energy?
Iâ€™ve seen a lot of press coverage on mega pipeline, wind, solar, thermal etc. projects â€“ but these are all large scale infrastructure projects and will take some good time to start and providing the electricity to masses like me and you.
As an individual or a small company, what options do we have? Is solar energy we can think of as an alternative? What other options do we have?
