Solar energy is collected and turned into electricity by photovoltaic solar panels. Any home or business that switches to solar energy will have some sort of solar panels installed on the property. A solar panel converts sunlight into electricity. They come in different sizes and colours with different solar cell types from various manufacturers. 

With accredited solar panel installers in and around all the major centres in South Africa, we are here to help you understand everything about solar energy — from environmental benefits to economics of solar to equipment—to guide you into making an informed decision.

Did you know that every kWh of electricity produced in South Africa creates a kilogram of carbon, we are one of the highest in the world, so if you using solar energy to produce say 5kWh of power during the day, you are saving the environment a load of 1825KGs of carbon emissions in a single year, that’s like the weight of a small car. Most grid-tied solar systems pay themselves off in 3 to 7 years depending on how large your system is and just how much energy you consume. Speak to us about taking a closer look at your current consumption, which of it can be refined and which is critical in the event of load shedding.

Choosing The Right System

Selecting a solar panel for a residential or commercial solar system requires understanding the different characteristics of each type of panel and the application. Options and aspects to consider when selecting a solar panel.

1. Size
2. Cell Types
3. Manufacturers

On Grid, Off Grid, Grid-Tied, Hybrid, Single Phase, and Three Phase……….. confusing right??

Choosing where to start can be very confusing and there is a lot confusing information out there if you don’t understand what people are talking about when they start talking about how your system will run and how it connects back to the utility company, be that Your local municipality or Eskom. The “Grid” being the local supplier of electricity can play a major roll in how your system behaves in a power outage.
