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!
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
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
Let's Get Started
There often a lot of questions regarding solar power and we’ve tried to answer some of the most common ones we recieve.
What is a "battery back-up" solution?
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?
