One of the main benefits of this project, according to the company, is it helps to conserve land area usually required for solar panels by utilizing the unused space of a gas station’s rooftop. The roofs of Korean gas stations are typically higher than those of adjacent structures, making them ideal for harnessing solar energy, and are also highly accessible in terms of maintenance purposes. Another positive aspect and long-term potential of this project is that the solar energy can also be used in a distributed generation system. By installing solar panels, gas station owners will receive Renewable Energy Certification and up to 50 percent more benefits than if they were to use only conventional power sources. If all 13,000 gas stations in Korea were to be fitted with solar panels, they would be capable of generating 300MW of power, which would be enough to meet the elect...
