    Your and my first thought is to compare costs. Are you surprised that they don't do the math between candles and electricity?They think it is cheaper to burn a candle, which they pay 1 peso for in Tabunok. Candles are also an old habit and used in "brownouts". IIt is much cheaper to pay 1 peso and have light than to turn on the electric light, they think. My wife says, "That's Filipino".

    And becoming much smarter and easier to use, this information was posted by a friend who has been installing Solar systems for the past couple of decades or more, whom I plan to use to supply me with the right (quality) equipment in the future;

    Well batteries are a thing of the past. Yes you read that correctly, it wont be long before batteries become obsolete, in fact it could be THIS YEAR. The new Super-capacitors are about to arrive, and these will mean that even Lithium technology will disappear as these are completely safe, so safe that you can put them into your compost when they are at end-of-life. Well that's if it ever happens because with a million cycles it will take a very long time, several lifetimes actually.

    These were on display at all-energy late last year and will arrive shortly, so anyone looking at storage of energy then this is the way of the future - or now.

    Thanks Brian. Those super capacitors sound amazing. I'll be spending a few hours Googling them.
    They sound like solar will become much more worth while. Batteries are the main reason I've never been interested in solar energy.

    Chris posted on his Facebook page stating that at the moment he has been told they are EXPENSIVE! When he knows more and is advised accordingly he will post up the pricing, but as he has stated the pricing will come down in time and will be much more viable than Batteries in the long term. We can only hope, as that is something that has held me back from looking into Solar Panels here also with the cost/ replacement/ disposal of suitable Batteries etc...

    Also try and steer clear of the Chinese Mainland Solar stuff. After decades in the trade and a crook supplier (long story) Chris now deals directly with a Taiwanese Company and avoids the Chinese mainland stuff at all costs!

    In 2016, here in Cambodia, I was paying an average rate of 1,500r / kWh (.375¢ US). The power rate dropped in 2017, to 1,100r / kWh (.275¢ US). This is in the city where we have an apartment. At our farm, we pay a rate of 780r / kWh (.195¢ US). So, the DOE is full of poo-poo.

    * Php 8.90, currently, is about .17¢ US.
