If there is a lack of electricity in a disaster area, installing solar panels can provide a solution that can provide reliable power. The following are the benefits of solar panels for use in disaster areas:
1. Rapid adoption: The time to install solar panels is relatively short in order to provide power in a short period of time.
2. Reliability: Solar panels can work off a failing grid and are not dependent on fuel. After a disaster, solar panels can help rebuild by providing a reliable source of energy for local communities.
3. Reduce carbon emissions: Solar panels can reduce greenhouse gas emissions that resonate during a disaster and help reduce environmental damage and health risks.
4. Adapt to various environments: Solar panels are a flexible solution. It can be installed in any environment, and is especially suitable for remote areas far from the urban grid.
It is important to note that the built environment of a disaster area may need to be designed and planned in advance so that the solar panels can operate efficiently and provide reliable power to the affected community. Therefore, in achieving this goal, assessment and planning based on local conditions is required to ensure that the use of solar panels is a wise, viable and effective option.
