Here at North Star Solar, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank Baroness Neville-Rolfe, Minister of State for Energy and Intellectual Property, for mentioning us during her opening statement at the Clean Energy Live exhibition at NEC Birmingham, 5th October ‘16.
We are thrilled to be recognized as part of a cohort of innovative British companies who are helping to transform the British renewable energy sector. More importantly, we are thrilled that the renewable sector is large enough to see so many dynamic new companies offering fresh and innovative solutions to our crippling dependency on fossil fuels. It demonstrates that we can now provide our population with a viable alternative to fossil fuels, one that will not only create new jobs and commercial opportunities, but also help to avoid the environmental destruction and political tensions that oil and gas assets have created for at least the last century.
Renewable energy has never been so cost-efficient. The cost of solar power technology continues to decline. Over the next 18 months, solar panel prices are expected to fall a further 50%. In fact, The Independent recently reported that for the first time, more electricity was generated between March and September of this year by solar power than coal-fired power stations. Renewable energy is not a passing trend – it is the future.
At North Star Solar, we are combining the affordable cost of solar power with battery storage to provide customers with an all-round power generation and storage system that costs less than traditional energy sources. We have been working hard on honing our model over the last nine months, completing the final finishing touches. The end result is a holistic offering which empowers customers by giving them the savings instead of paying excessive profits to middle-men. Our gratitude to those who have helped us, and Baroness Neville-Rolfe for recognizing our efforts.
