The price of solar energy, or photovoltaics, has dropped over 70% in the last decade and The solar industry is booming, with a record number of people putting solar photovoltaics on their rooftops

Solar electricity systems (also known as photovoltaics, PV systems, or solar panels) convert sunlight into electricity. It is now widely accepted that solar PV remains one of the cheapest forms of energy available.

Solar PV is the fastest growing power-generating technology in the world. The PV market is said to be growing globally at an annual rate of 35 to 40%.
Over a period of 10 years, Eskom’s electricity prices have increased by about 356%, whilst inflation over the same period was 74%.

Residential solar power rooftop installations are skyrocketing internationally and with skyrocketing energy costs, falling prices for renewable power, onsite renewable energy, particularly rooftop solar photovoltaic energy (solar PV), is becoming more and more prevalent and attractive.

Why Solar?

South Africa boasts one of the best solar resources in the world, a largely untapped resource that can be harnessed to benefit your bottom line. Here are some reasons why solar PV makes sense:

  • Provides long term energy savings. Solar PV modules last for 25 years and require almost no maintenance.
  • Solar power Is a free source of energy and is the cleanest, most reliable form of renewable energy available
  • Mitigates risk related to future municipal tariff uncertainty
  • Provides a clean, renewable energy supply that will reduce your carbon footprint
  • Offers a less expensive and greener alternative to diesel power generation
  • Solar panels produce clean, renewable energy from a fuel source that requires no locating, excavation, transportation, or combustion.
  • In South Africa the general payback period of a solar PV system is 5-6 years. With a system that lasts for 25 years, this means approximately 20 years of free, clean energy!

With electrical bills over the years rising exponentially the option of installing a renewable energy system suddenly makes much more sense than it did 24-36 months ago.

South Africa can get about 65% more power from the same PV system than in Europe

There is a revolution in our midst. The revolution is helping companies cut their energy costs, with progressively greater returns on investment in the years to come; it is also helping some companies secure their electricity supply and protect themselves against the rising cost of electricity. This revolution is reducing the amount of greenhouse gases emitted to the atmosphere, thus mitigating climate change and improving a company’s public image by becoming more environmentally responsible. It is the Rooftop Revolution, and is one of the fastest growing industries in both South Africa and the world: solar photovoltaic, or solar PV.

“It makes absolutely no financial sense to keep paying for a resource like electricity that you can in fact generate for yourself with an asset that adds tremendous value to your property, hedges your costs for the next 20 to 25 years and will save you a massive amount of money over the cumulative lifespan of your solar investment”,
