In situations where networks are fairly simple and fault levels are low. For example in most embedded utility scale Solar (PV). Earthing/grounding can have a significant impact on the cost to build (and connect) a successful renewable generation scheme. A key part of the build cost is down to the raw materials, of which a significant part is the cost of copper. Used for the control of surface voltages as part of a Safe Electrical Earthing Design.

Photovoltaics – With the two exceptions of nuclear power and tidal power, virtually all the electricity generated on earth comes from the sun, by using sun-driven natural phenomena such as wind and rainfall, or by way of the ability of plants to capture carbon from the atmosphere by photosynthesis.
