Although using solar panels as walls may capture less light than when installed on a roof, the significantly lower installation cost has made this option attractive to many.

In recent years, we have witnessed a real twist in the solar energy market. What was once seen as a very expensive alternative energy option has now become affordable to the point where solar panels are used not only on roofs, but as real walls in homes across Europe.

This phenomenon is particularly notable in countries like the Netherlands and Germany, where drastically falling prices have completely transformed the urban and rural landscape.

The role of Chinese production in the democratization of solar energy

The root of this monumental shift can be attributed to the boom in solar panel production in China, which has saturated the global market and forced prices to plummet. This cost reduction came at an opportune time, enabling solar panels to become a viable option for a much wider range of consumers.

To give you an idea, a solar panel cost 11 cents/watt at the end of March this year, half the price sold in the same period last year, according to data from BloombergNEF – and is expected to fall even more. After all, who wouldn't want to significantly reduce their energy bill while contributing to a greener planet?

Solar panels as walls: A Creative solution

Although using solar panels as walls may capture less light than when installed on a roof, the significantly lower installation cost has made this option attractive to many. This innovative shape not only serves as a physical barrier but also as a sustainable energy source, marking the beginning of a new era in harnessing solar energy.

Despite progress, the installation of solar panels still faces challenges, such as increased labor costs and delays in connecting to the electricity grid, testing the patience of owners and suppliers. Furthermore, limited network capacity in some locations emerges as a problem that requires innovative and agile solutions.

The bright future of solar energy

With the International Energy Agency predicting that solar energy supply will reach 1.100 gigawatts globally by the end of 2024, the future looks promising. This exponential growth reflects not only technological advancement, but also a shift in global perception about the importance of renewable energy.

In Europe, where the imbalance between supply and demand has generated economic problems for the sector, the European Commission has promised to evaluate unfair practices and improve panel manufacturers' access to European Union funds. This shows a commitment to fine-tuning and optimizing the solar energy market, ensuring it continues to flourish.

An Era of Accessibility and Sustainability

The dramatic drop in solar panel prices and their adoption in creative forms like walls demonstrates the flexibility and potential of solar energy. As we overcome technical and economic challenges, we move towards a future where clean and sustainable energy is not just a possibility, but a reality accessible to everyone. Solar energy, now cheaper and more versatile than ever, is poised to play a central role in the global energy transition, proving that the sun truly is for everyone.

Oxi Of course not, the panels here are also extremely cheap. Today, with less than 5k you can buy panels and a microinverter to generate 300kWh/month. About 3 years ago it would have been more than double that

Peaceful citizen, in 2015 and 2017, yes, the panels were twice as large as today, in 2020 I managed to get 3500kw for 80000,00, in 2016 the budget for 2500 was 120.000,00, in the same company a colleague of mine quoted for 2000kw a month and it's coming out around from 70k…. Apart from tax, it will reach 30% of production….

The interesting thing about this is that it goes against the grain of those who say that electric cars are a risk to the energy system if they will increase human energy consumption too much. It is no longer an exaggeration to say that soon the vast majority of homes will be energy generators, so the future promises plenty, not lack of energy.

The problem with electric cars is not just consumption. But the worst villain is safety due to batteries, they are extremely volatile, they generate explosions and fires very easily, they need to operate at appropriate temperatures, not too hot and not too cold.
Adding to the low security, delays in recharging, few refueling points. They also make electric cars unviable at the moment. It may be that these problems will be resolved in the near future.

Exactly, the temperature in Brazil is chaos, as each region of the country has a different climate, if even the caseline car manufacturers WRONG by manufacturing a car that ends up boiling due to these adverse climatic situations, imagine with the batteries, A battery bank of mine exploded in 2020 in a central controlled with air conditioning MOURA batteries, there were 8 100A batteries in it. Imagine being in a car with people inside.

Oh, nothing, I have a client who has an electric Mercedes and I saw when I arrived to work in the morning that it was plugged into a common socket in the house! This means that you don't need to have specific charging points.

The solution for cars is not total electrification. The future is hybrid. Toyota started and everyone is following. There are already cars that can do 100km on ONE liter of fuel, as the battery recharges even when braking.

It is necessary to balance the exchange of the energy matrix. With each step taken towards energy emancipation, the price of energy supplied by the network that maintains physical infrastructure increases. Those who cannot have their own generation end up paying for all this infrastructure. So, until these imbalances are overcome, there will be compensation. There are other commercial interests involved, which overshadow this dynamic. There is also the benefit of own generation returning to the grid. Even so, we still need time to balance.

Brazil, here we pay absurd taxes, people pay taxes to receive their salary and then pay again to spend it, people have to react, but no, they just stay on the couch, if every Brazilian has a slingshot on the side of the avenues and highways we stopped Brazil, no one needs to block anything, just rocks, seven days stopped, it will hurt but it will change.

Wake up people, we are leaving these millionaire politicians, those on the left and those on the right, let's stop being idiots.

It will never work, it has already been tried, few people who have joined have been screwed. Some received 17 years in prison, others are paying millionaire fines. Brazil because of politics doesn’t work. Only in the worst case scenario, perhaps with many deaths, will Brazil's current STF be gone.

That's it, there's no point in talking anymore
We need Action, the power is in our hands, it does not belong to the STF or the politicians. We have to put an end to paying millions of dollars in politics, politicians should be for honor, just cover expenses, like in several other countries. A good occupation for retirees, experienced people who will serve the country very well. Receive a non-immoral amount, without perks, etc.
I already voted for Lula, a long time ago, I cannot disregard the facts, we cannot be alienated. I will always defend my country, I don't have a pet politician.

Cheap solar panel in Brazil. Only if it's the cockroach's husband.
I bought 2023 Canadian 4W solar panels at the end of September 660 in Brazil. Now in Brazil, in 2024, I did research and found it for 1.100,00. Where's the cheap?

We first need to put someone in government to reduce taxes and then we'll see what happens! Food goes up every month! Quality clothes like pure cotton, you can't find at low prices. Everything expensive! Okay, the internet and telephone have become cheaper, but is that it? I feel robbed! No matter how much I save my electricity, it doesn't go down! Even my water became more expensive after they privatized, ok the service has improved, but the prices are too much! 1 minimum wage does not support my house, which is a poor house financed over 30 years by the fund! I saw this president speaking badly about the middle class, I could see the hatred he has, and it is clear that the lower class is despised and exploited! They are a minority and they took power from us. Until when?

In countries other than the tropics, this is even an advantage, because the inclination of the plates already has to be high. Between the tropics, the sign spends part of the year without receiving sunlight (if installed facing north or south) or part of the day (if installed facing east or west)

Due to lack of knowledge my people will perish, don't publish what you don't know, this type of installation is the most effective, articles like this hinder the sector that is already failing, try to publish correct things and if you don't know or understand the subject, look for a specialist to that the subject becomes more emphasized and becomes real knowledge, subjects like this ruin all types of work, please, if you don't understand the subject, seek correct information and don't disturb the sector that is already just dust, where on the planet it is done everything is wrong in solar energy due to lack of knowledge, when you want to publish a real article, try to know the truth to write a beautiful article, that way the Europeans will always call us idiots. Publish articles with relevance and knowledge for the sector.
There is a lack of knowledge about this type of installation throughout the world.
This is the best generation system, for this you need to have a professional who knows the cause so that they can get the most out of your panels.
