the future of harnessing energy
Whether you go completely off-grid or simply supplement your household energy intake by starting off gradually with a basic system - solar power is the best way of dealing with the ongoing increase in energy costs currently haunting the South African. The initial investment of solar power is often enough to scare one off from going solar, but the truth is that the payback period of your investment and the subsequent rewards make solar power affordable to most home and business owners.

Advantages of going solar
Power your entire home or supplement power usage - solar power depending on the size of the equipment can generates enough energy/electricity to power an average size home, if dependence on eskom's unstable power source worries you, you can always use solar power to supplement your power needs – you can use it to heat your pool or your geyser or for outdoor lighting.
Solar power systems are long lasting and need very little maintenance - once you are up and running you’re set to enjoy years of trouble free energy.
Store energy/electricity - solar power can be stored for cloudy or non rainy days, so you don’t have to worry about your lights being cut off in the middle of a dinner party. And if you use solar power as a supplemental source of energy, excess electricity generated can be fed back into the grid, which is credited against your conventional power bill.
Environmentally friendly - solar power doesn’t produce any carbon emissions, it’s clean and renewable, which allows you to reduce your carbon footprint and do your bit to alleviate global warming.
Silent - with no machines or power lines used to generate solar power, systems are completely silent.
Disadvantages of solar power
Setup costs/Capital investment.
Intermittent power source - solar power is obviously not always available – the sun sets, it rains. But solar power can be complemented by the generation of wind power, or simply stored for later use.
Many solar power storage systems store enough energy to power your home for up to five days.
