Goodfellows Co., Ltd. More than 90% of solar installers answered that “it was good to use FIT”! 75% of all interested in introducing batteries Thailand Navi Research Institute conducts a questionnaire survey on solar power generation and future FIT termination …………………………………………………………………………………………… Goodfellows Co., Ltd. (headquartered in Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo, representative director: Yasuhiro Nagao), which operates “Tainavi Research Institute”, which conducts research and public relations activities for the development of the next-generation energy industry, Conducted a questionnaire survey on the end of solar power generation and future FIT (fixed-price purchase system), targeting 332 “Thai Navi Series” users nationwide. Among the respondents of the questionnaire survey, those who installed the solar power generation using FIT asked “Do you think it was good to install the solar power generation using FIT”, 90.7% said “Yes” It answered that.
■ Summary of the survey: Questionnaire survey on photovoltaic generation and future FIT end
■ Effective answer: 332 Thai navigator series users nationwide who have installed solar power for housing
■ Survey method: Internet questionnaire survey
■ Estimate period: July 3-2019 July 9 2019
■ Tai Navi Research Institute: https://www.tainavi-soken.com/ ※ The “Thai Navi Series” here refers to the solar power generation package estimation site “Thai Navi” for homes and the storage battery package estimate site “Tai Navi Storage Battery”. (1) Three quarters agree that the transition to home consumption is in favor! 75% are interested in introducing storage batteries. In June 2019, some media reported that the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry was considering revising the law, including the end of a portion of the fixed-price purchase system (hereinafter referred to as FIT). Actually there is no official announcement by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, but according to some media reports, it is considering the law revision of the FIT system for large-scale solar power generation not for general housing. In light of this, Tai Navi Research Institute conducted a questionnaire survey for Tai Navi series users nationwide that have installed residential solar power in preparation for the end of the FIT system for residential use in the future. When asked the questionnaire respondents, “Do you agree with the increase in the number of homes that consume home with solar power by the end of FIT?” 75.6% answered “Yes”. If you ask the person who answered “Yes”, the reason is, “Use the electricity made efficiently, and the expenses can be reduced (Shizuoka / 40-year-old man)” “Because it is better to consume at home than to buy cheaply ( Okayama Prefecture / Men in their 50s) ”and so on. Also, consider the environment as “I think it can be a means to solve energy problems (Ibaraki Prefecture / 50’s male)” “Because the improvement of the energy self-sufficiency rate is good for the environment (Toyama Prefecture / 50’s male)” Some people were in favor of the eco-friendly point of view. On the other hand, regarding the compatibility of storage batteries and photovoltaic power generation, “any manufacturer is compatible, and even if it breaks, sharing the connection method so that it can be used immediately by any manufacturer will not make it easier for users to use. Or (Saga / 60 or more Male). ”
Figure 1: Do you agree that the end of FIT will increase the number of households that consume solar power? Next, when asked the solar power generation installer, “Do you have a storage battery?”, 86.1% answered “No”. To those who answered that they do not have storage batteries, they asked, “Are you interested in introducing storage batteries based on the news of the end of FIT?” 74.6% answered “Yes”.
Fig. 2: Did you get interested in the introduction of storage batteries based on the report of the end of FIT? (2) Answer that 90% or more of FIT users were good to use! When asked the respondents of the questionnaire, “Did you install solar power generation using FIT?” 87.7% answered “Yes”. Next, when I asked, “Do you think it was good to install solar power using FIT,” 90.7% answered “Yes.” If you ask the person who answered “Yes” the reason, “Because monthly electricity sales income will be a supplement to life (Ishikawa / 30’s female)” “The prospect of being able to recover expenses will be (Aichi / 30’s “Man)” said that many people thought it was economically advantageous. In addition, there were people who felt an increase in eco-consciousness, such as “I started thinking about power saving for a long time (Kanagawa / Female in my 30s)”.
Figure 3: Do you think it would be nice to install solar power using FIT (3) About 60% of FIT users answered that they will consume themselves after the FIT period ends! Finally, when asked “What do you want generated electricity when the FIT period is over” to the solar power installer, 59.6% answered that “consumes with a storage battery etc.”. When I asked the person who answered that “consumes in a storage battery etc.”, “because it is combined use with all electrification (Mie / 60 or more males)” “Because a considerable amount of electricity is used (Saitama / It seems that households with a large amount of use, such as men in their 30s, feel the benefits of using up their own consumption. There were also voices of concern about the low expectations for new sellers, such as “it is not likely to buy as high as now (Aichi Prefecture, 30s male)”. On the other hand, some people considered it as a disaster prevention measure, such as “Preparing for an emergency power outage (Nagasaki / Male over 60s)”. It is thought that last year there were more than 5 million households across the country affected by the typhoon and blackouts caused by the power outage and the Hokkaido earthquake.
Figure 4: How do you want to generate electricity when the FIT period is over? (4) The 2019 problem of solar power generation starting from November 2019! What is a Graduate FIT? The “Shu-FIT” is the end of the 10-year purchase period defined by the Renewable Energy Fixed Price Purchase System (FIT), which began in 2009. In November 2019, 10 years after the start of FIT, there will be 530,000 cases, and about 180,000 will be graduated every year thereafter. It is said that there will be about 2.3 million electric power prosumers that generate electric power while consuming electric power without using FIT, and the number will be one in 10 houses in Japan. The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry opened an information provision site for graduate FIT households, and carried out 1. Self-consumption in combination with storage batteries etc. 2. Newly made a relative and free contract with a retail electric utility etc., selling surplus power It offers two options for powering. Currently, house makers, renewable energy equipment makers, and power companies are announcing new options for graduate FIT households. About the Good Fellows who operate the “Thai Navi Series” Since its establishment in 2009, the company has operated the “Thai Navi Series”, a platform for the next-generation energy industry centered on solar power generation, and has been used by more than 130,000 members. As of May 2019, among 380,000 re-energy facilities (number of business plan certifications) approved by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, re-energy facilities owned by non-residential members of the “Thai Navi Series” The total capacity reaches 5GW which is equivalent to 5 units when the output capacity of one nuclear power plant is assumed to be 1GW. By expanding the number of members of the “Thai Navi Series” to 1.6 GW by the end of 2021, we will expand the domestic renewable energy facilities owned by the “Thai Navi Series” members to 14 GW.
