When you read the title of this article, what was the first thing that came into your mind? Probably something along the lines of Frankenstein living high up in isolation creating a monster and some thunder in the background for dramatic effect.
There are many misconceptions when it comes to exercising the right to generate electricity. The most common mistake is the fact that we don’t do it already!
Yes, as we speak, this is a phenomenon not uncommon to most people – even though they might not be actively aware of the fact that they are generating their electricity.
Perhaps the keyword in the entire statement is ‘own” as in relative to your person. When we add a possessive phrase to any sentence, we make people look into their property and wonder whether or not this is something relative to them or something they have the right to do.
Well, both. For example, most companies make use of power generators, and some people make use of solar panels. In effect, you’re still connected to the primary grid that links us all together through shared sources of power.
Just that the power that you have been using isn’t a shared common source, it’s relative to your property.
To put it, you have made use of a third-party source of generating electricity that is only relative to a person and property. Hence, while establishing a connection to the grid, the energy used, therefore, is only limited to your use.
Solar Panel Servicing
Perhaps one of the most common and well-understood sources of generating electricity comes from the use of solar panels. Harnessing energy generated from the sun isn’t it a concept limited to the 21st century.
However, the current century is marked by technological advancements that were unseen anywhere before in history. Thus, while the concept is relatively historic – the technology used thereof is not.
Solar panels are devices installed onto rooftops or other areas where the sun can directly hit them and then harnessing the radiant energy from the sun.
The light emitted from the sun might seem like a coherent ray. However, in retrospect, it is composed of numerous wavelengths. Additionally, a single unit of radiant energy would be a photon.
Solar Panels for Business
Businesses are probably the most significant industry that wants to make good of free and renewable means of energy. Essentially, something that is both durable and cost-efficient.
Businesses have been making good on the fact that energy can be generated and harnessed from the sun. Additionally, realising that state laws do not prohibit the use of self-generation, they have increasingly used these methods and means.
The Extent of the Right
The fact of the matter, however, is that while citizens of the UK have the power of the self-generation of electricity, increasing pressure has been placed upon legislators to regulate this right.
Which, is worthwhile to mention, isn’t necessarily written in the constitution as a right. Instead, it is a right made evident thereof based upon other rights.
