    BENEFITS OF SOLAR AND BACKUP

 

Reduced Electricity Bills or even no Electricity bills

Solar power gives you the ability to reduce and even in some cases eliminate your electricity bill thus enabling you to save on electricity costs. Electricity costs are generally a large expense on a monthly basis therefore making use of a solar system generates free power for you to make use of.

 

Energy Security and Independence from Eskom

Making use of solar power can give you electrical independence as you will be utilising the power you gather from the sun all day to run your household and appliances. You will be protecting yourself from unplanned power failures, load shedding , possible damage to electrical appliances as well us unexpected increases in electricity / Eskom rates.

 

Increase Property Value

Solar power can increase the value of your property tremendously. A solar system is an asset and can be sold with your house. Recent studies have proven that houses that have Solar power systems installed have a higher property value.

 

Return On Investment

Solar power systems are an investment. Due to the fact that you will be utilising solar power, you will have a significant, guaranteed decrease in your municipal electricity bill thus resulting in you saving large amounts of money. On average a solar system can be paid back within an estimated time period of 3 to 7 years.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

A reduced carbon footprint is an important factor in the effort to reduce damage to the environment. Surrounding oneself with nature can result in a healthier life.

           TYPES OF SOLAR SYSTEMS

Backup System

This system consists on an battery inverter and  battery bank. The battery inverter inverts battery power from the batteries into a form that can be used in your house during a power outage. The battery inverter then charges the batteries again once the power returns. There are no savings with this type of system but many people upgrade these systems by adding solar panels for savings later on.

 

Hybrid System

 

These solar systems consist of solar panels, a solar charge controller and a hybrid battery inverter with batteries. This system utilises excess solar power to charge your batteries instead of feeding it back to the grid, so that your battery can be cycled at night instead of you making use of Municipal / Eskom power. You indirectly utilise your solar power through the battery until the battery level runs low, thereafter Municipal / Eskom power will be utilised, this is an automatic switch controlled by an automated inverter.

 

Benefits :-

 

  • Inverter ensures an automatic switch between solar batteries and Eskom

  • Power backup for unexpected power cuts and load shedding

  • Life span on batteries is dependant on the type of battery and usage thereof but can generally last between 5 – 15 years.

 

Grid Tied Photo Voltaic Systems

 

These solar systems consist of solar panels and a grid tie inverter without batteries. This means that while Municipal / Eskom power is on, the system will be giving you savings. The unfortunate thing about this system is that your power will switch off during unexpected power cuts and load shedding as there is no back up battery. This option is purely for savings purposes.

 

Benefits :-

 

  • Cheaper installation costs

  • Can be upgraded with a battery back up system in future

  • Can feed back into the grid

  • Hardly any maintenance and approximately 25 years + lifespan
