all about solar

What is solar power?

Solar energy harnesses the sun’s energy and converts it to electricity for your home or business. The sun is a free source of energy!

What do you want from solar?

There are 3 main questions that you should ask yourself:

1. Am I looking for a solution to load-shedding?

2. Am I looking to save money on my electricty bill?

3. Am I looking to go “off grid”?

Each question has a different solution and each solution varies in their cost. Thankfully we have very experienced personel to review your needs and provide advice to best suit your wallet and the outcomes you are looking for. 

 

investing in solar power

Solar power is reliable and renewable, and it will give you a powerful return on your investment. 

Most households and businesses use solar power for a reason:

  • To save money by reducing dependence on the national grid.
  • As a backup power source in the event of power outage or load-shedding.
  • To reduce dependence on the national power grid / power provider.

An investment in solar power ensures productivity for your business and peace of mind for your home.

how to tell what you need

Solar power is not a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why you’re on our website – let the professionals help you to determine what you need!

the solar process

Converting energy received from the sun is a complex process. There are multiple methods of harnessing this energy to provide power / energy to the home or office. The process outlines a basic flow for information purposes.

Energy is provided by the sun

The sun is a consistent source of energy that is harnessed for solar power generation

charge controller

The charge controller ensures that the electric current is controlled safely and efficiently

Solar panels absorb the energy

The energy that the sun provides is absorbed by the solar panels that are placed in such a manner to maximise exposure to sunlight

battery and inverter*

Should there be a Hybrid System installed (this is different to “solar only” offerings) then a battery and inverter stores and allocates the power when needed

Electric current is produced

The solar panels then generate an electric current that is channelled correctly.

power is provided

Ultimately, power is then provided to the home or office. There are a variety of offerings including Grid-Tie, Solar-only and Hybrid systems

FAQ’s

There often a lot of questions regarding solar power and we’ve tried to answer some of the most common ones we recieve.

What solar options are available to me?

There are 3 main options:

  • Load-shedding solution: We have specific load-shedding solutions that can be discussed.
  • Electricity bill savings: We have solutions to save you on your electricity bill but what is important to note is that these savings are calculated over a period of time. This solution requires an investment from our clients. Whilst the outlay may seem like it is expensive, the savings over a period of time will more than make up for it! Best off all, we have financing options through the 4 major banks in South Africa. So if you a credit-worthy South African, you could consider this option!
  • Off grid: This is an option to become completely independent of the State Provider of Electricty. This is a very involved option and should be discussed with one of our professionals to give you all the relevant information.
What is a "battery back-up" solution?

A battery solution is often perfect for family homes and small businesses that need battery back-up power when Eskom is down. A battery Solution will automatically operate during load shedding or in the event of an unexpected power outage.

what is a "solar only" solution?

Best for properties in which most electricity is consumed during the day, a solar only solution includes a solar panel array with an inverter. This is a great way to reduce your electricity bill and optimise energy efficiency because power generated by the panels means you are not using electricity from the electrical grid so long as the solar panels are exposed to the sun.

 

What is a "hybrid solar" solution?

If the goal is to be completely energy independent and energy efficient, then a hybrid solar solution is right for you. The solution is a collection of components – solar panels, a charge controller, an inverter and a battery – that allow you to run a Solar Power System for your home or business.

 

are there tax incentives regarding solar?

There are a few tax incentives or policies that deal directly with renewable energy (and some that especially mention solar energy). Basically, you could claim back 100% of your total cost of your solar installation. More information should be sourced directly from the South African Revenue Service (SARS)
