Be energy wise, solarise.
- Solar energy is a renewable energy source, meaning you don’t ever use it up. Solar energy is clean. It creates no carbon emissions or other greenhouse gases. It also avoids the environmental damage associated with mining or drilling for fossil fuels. Furthermore, solar energy also uses little to no water, unlike power plants that generate electricity using steam turbines.
- Solar power is self-sufficient and installing solar panels on your roof is a safe and easy path to contribute to a sustainable future. Starting on your home is a great way to show you care about the environment.
- Aside from solar electricity, solar energy has a second application. We often associate solar energy with electricity, which is acquired through PV panels. It is also possible to use the energy generated by the sun for heating purposes. This process is accomplished by deploying solar thermal systems that simply convert the sunlight into heating solutions. Solar water heating solutions for geysers and swimming pools are good examples.
2. Economic benefits
- One of the main concerns that people face with solar panel installations is the cost. Well, don’t be too concerned over the myths of the cost of solar panels. Solar panels are an investment in your future. A solar panel installation could cost less than the installation of an electric grid to your property.
- Solar energy can reduce your home’s electricity bill. A solar energy system for your home can reduce your reliance on the grid and can lower your electricity bill. Some owners of residential solar energy systems may even have excess power that they can sell to the local utility provider.
- For those who cannot afford to buy an entire solar energy system to reduce your home’s electricity bill. Simply choose solar lights and a water heating solution that are powered by the sun instead of your home’s electrical system. This will help you to save money.
- Homes with solar panels installed may improve your property value. Home buyers will likely pay more for a house with solar panels installed. Considering solar energy pros and cons, the savings on electricity bills and the money earned selling power back to the utility, all count in the plus column. Residential solar energy systems are becoming highly valued and can increase a home’s resale value.
- Solar panels have low maintenance costs. Solar systems are fairly easy to install and require very little maintenance, as they have no moving parts that wear out over time. Just keep them clean and in good physical condition to keep them working properly. Between their low maintenance costs and average lifespan of 25 to 30 years, it can be easy to get your money’s worth when investing in solar panels.
3. Independence from ESKOM
- In South Africa we suffer from unstable and inadequate energy access. We are all familiar with loadshedding whilst load reduction seems to be the next threat to our Eskom supply network. Solar panel systems provide a decentralised and dependable answer to this problem,allowing households and businesses to generate electricity while minimising their dependency on the National Eskom network.
- A solar panel system boosts your electricity independence. Not only does it ensure you to keep the lights on and maintain your lifestyle. It also lower your future energy cost as your own cost of generation will not increase over time. Furthermore, solar power systems are durable, thus chances of service interruption are reduced.
- When there are many of us switching to solar power, we are less likely to experience loadshedding or the possibility of a blackout. Every household in South Africa that have solar panels installed, functions as a small scale power plant. This, in turn, provides us with a greater electricity grid security.
- Once you have solar panels up on your roof, you’ve technically reached an energy-independent status. Solar battery storage can help store electricity for night time and rainy days.
4. Solar power is scalable
- Solar power is scalable. This means that it can be deployed on an industrial scale, or it can be used to power a single household.
- When it’s used on a small scale, extra electricity can be stored in a battery bank or fed back into the electricity grid.
- Overall, the sun gives off far more energy than we’ll ever need. The only limitation is our own ability to convert it to electricity in a cost-effective way.
5. Solar can produce in most climate conditions
- Solar energy systems can generate electricity in most climate conditions. One of the disadvantages of solar energy is that it’s subject to temporary weather disruption. Cloudy and rainy days may reduce the amount of electricity you produce. Cold conditions, however, doesn’t affect productivity.
6. Tax rebate
- All residential installations that falls within the period 1st March 2023 and 29 February 2024 qualify for a rebate on panel installation.
