What we do

“I’ve waited 24 years for lights in my home…
24 years in darkness... when they arrived and
told us they would give us power.

We didn’t believe them.

Three weeks later, the sun went down,
and we switched on our lights.”

Solar Power Stations

Meet our popular off grid SS20

Our SS20 DC micro grid range of solar products are ideal for scattered environments where the distance between installations is large and the demographics sparse.

Along with energy access, customers are provided with efficient DC powered appliances that improve their quality of life. These appliances support the very basics of indigent energy needs such as lighting and cell phone charging then progress to more comfort appliances, such as refrigeration and saterlitte TV as a customer's energy needs grow.

Things to consider why going green is the best option

The average solar system in South Africa will prevent between 1.75 – 2.05 tonnes of carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere per year.

Electricity prices forecast to surge by 93% over an 8-year period [source: Times Live].

A solar system adds real capital value to your home.

The possibility of not having a power bill for the next 25-40 years. Solar systems last for 25 years with an 80% yield, though they have been known to perform for over 45 years.

Your energy use and the size of your solar energy system will determine the actual savings. With little or no start-up costs, systems start paying for themselves immediately and increase each year as the cost of electricity rises. A typical return on investment is usually around 15-20%.


There are three main types of residential solar installations

A solar system that connects the solar panel installation with the main electricity grid is known as a grid-tied solar power system and if legislation allows, you will be able to feed excess energy back into the grid through a special meter, and when legislation allows you will be financially rewarded.

An off-grid solar power system generally for remote properties where the cost of connecting to the main grid is prohibitive or not financially viable. The solar system charges a battery bank which in turn is used to power a house. A generator may be used as a backup to the battery system.

A hybrid solar system combines the best of both worlds: the convenience of a grid connected system — including the ability to earn Feed-In Tariff credits (legislation applicable) — with the extra peace of mind of a battery backup. This means that even during a power blackout, you still have electricity.

Factors to take into consideration when going solar

The cost of your solar system depends on several factors including your current energy usage, your available unshaded roof space, your utility’s (Eskom’s) metering policy and other factors.

Normally solar panels will be installed as discreetly as possible on your roof, but if you prefer they can also be erected free-standing elsewhere on your property.

Solar panel orientation is dependent on the installations latitude.  As a rule of thumb, maximum solar energy in South Africa is obtained by having the solar panels face north and tilted upwards at an angle of 30 degrees.

Look for professionals who can offer you strong warranties, good after sales support and have a proven track record.
