Solar Energy

Stop burning your hard-earned cash, go solar!

Energy prices in South Africa are on the rise and we have finally reached a point where solar technology is cheap enough to curb these costs with good financial returns. Solar makes sense.

Moving forward with solar electric

Photovoltaic (PV) cell converts sunlight to electricity.

solar
The photoelectric effect refers to the emission, or ejection, of electrons from the surface of a metal in response to light. It is the basic physical process in which a solar electric or photovoltaic (PV) cell converts sunlight to electricity. Sunlight is made up of photons, or particles of solar energy.
Solar PV systems use cells to convert sunlight into electricity. The PV cell consists of one or two layers of a semi conducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers causing electricity to flow.
Why should you be using solar?

Sustainability is the way forward

The sun provides more than enough energy in just one hour to supply our planet’s energy needs for an entire year. Your home can capture this free, abundant energy source through rooftop solar tiles, turning sunlight into electricity for immediate use or storage in a battery.

Solutions we offer

We do large and small PV (photovoltaic) generation, solar thermal technology (including industrial and commercial solar water heating) and energy efficiency projects that save our clients energy and money.

Residential

Residential solar panels convert solar energy into electricity for your home. Beautifully functional, solar integrates with home batteries to collect energy during the day for use in the evening once the sun goes down.

Commercial

There are many ways to save energy and improve profits. But a properly designed solar system will allow you to maximise the benefits.
