In the past 50 years, we have experienced a whopping 0.5°C rise in global temperatures. A consecutive period of nine years starting from 2013 through 2021 has been ranked among the top 10 warmest years on record.
The world has tirelessly been generating energy from fossil fuels that emit greenhouse gases since the Industrial Revolution and that is the greatest contributor to Climate Change. The rise in sea level, the loss of coastal land, altered precipitation patterns, droughts, floods, and shifts in existence and distribution of biodiversity are barely a few alarming consequences of global warming. This has to stop!
The need to switch to utilizing renewable resources cannot be stressed more now than ever. India has immense solar potential and this makes it relatively easy to harness solar energy. Unlike earlier, technological advancement has resulted in easy and cost-friendly access to clean renewable resources even for the common man.
SunEdison, has been offering solutions to achieve a sustainable lifestyle with solar energy, since a while now. We have partnered with US-based start-up, Arka Energy to launch the Arka Collection in the Indian market.
Now, we proudly present to you, the Arka PowerGazebo: A Sitout that powers your home!
What is a Gazebo?
A gazebo is a pavilion structure, that is usually built in a park, or garden space of a house. It can be the centerpiece of your backyard. It offers an ambient sit-out structure with a wide view of the surrounding area. Gazebos are ideal if you love shaded outdoor spaces for sunny days within the comforts of your residential premises. They are perfect for celebrations and gatherings.
With SunEdison, you can turn your outdoor space into a mini power plant! A solar gazebo has solar energy-generating equipment attached atop existing or custom-built structures. It is often a standalone structure that has a roof consisting of solar panels and acts as a shelter or cover for the space beneath.
Solar gazebos allow you to create clean energy while retaining the use of the land. Customizing the structure of the gazebo and incorporating roof gardens can make the solar gazebo add an aesthetic flair to your outdoor space. Additional space and elegance aside, you get to generate clean renewable energy in your backyard!
