A grid-tied solar system is the first and most economical step to reduce monthly electricity bills and offer the best Return on Investment. This is ideal for a property where most of the electricity usage is consumed during the day.
Solar geysers rely on the sun’s energy to heat water and is capable of heating water up to 90°C. As a result, water heating costs should
decrease by 40%+ whilst providing for up to 90% of your water heating needs.
This is a massive saving for the average person resulting in a ROI within 2-3
years. Solar Geysers can effectively provide warm water for up to 15 years, if
Hybrid Solar Systems
Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as the common grid-tie solar system but use special hybrid inverters and batteries to store energy for later use e.g. as a backup power supply during load shedding, similar to a UPS system.
Retrofit Solar Geyser
Conversion is an installation where either a flat plate
kit or an evacuated tube kit is connected to an existing electric geyser as a
pre-feed. The conversion kit is used to pre-heat water and feed this hot water
into the existing electric geyser with hot water thereby ensuring that the
electric geyser is hot all the time, therefore minimizing or even eliminating
the need to use the electric element.
Off Grid Solar Systems
An off-grid system is not connected to the electricity grid and must be
designed appropriately so that they will generate enough power to cater for
days of poor weather conditions and in the depths of winter when there is
generally much less sunlight. The high cost of batteries and off-grid inverters
means off-grid systems are much more expensive but can be designed to run in
conjunction with generators, and even to use generators to recharge the batteries.
It is ideal for new or remote installations.
Battery Backup Solutions
The current and frequent load shedding coupled
with the noise, inconvenience and cost of a generator is an ever-increasing
frustration. Battery Backup Power Systems will provide you with backup
power when you need it and could be expanded to a hybrid solar system with the correct choice of initial components. When the power goes out, the system will automatically
start to operate within a split second.
