Grid Tied Power Systems
* Solar panels provide power to the inverter which provide power to appliances / machines in your home / building.
* Will reduce your monthly Eskom account drastically.
* Ideal for commercial installations as many companies only operate in daylight hours - save up to 80% on Eskom.
This is a more affordable power system with a payback time of only 4-5 years. The system works with no batteries - only solar panels and an inverter.
The solar panels have a 25 year warranty which means that you will receive free electricity for 20+ years.
This option is ideal for businesses where the power demands are between 08:00 and 17:00. The system also has residential benefits as pools, geysers, washing machines etc. can run when the system is producing free power.
We would install monitoring devices in your distribution board, analyse your energy demands and design your system accordingly.
In certain areas in South Africa, you can export any excess energy back into the grid. In other words, your meter records how much extra energy you produce during the day and then when the sun goes down, you use your credits. Your electricity bill can be reduced to almost nothing!
The down side is that if the grid fails by law the system must also switch off.
The solution is then to add a few batteries and Bi-Directional Inverter to power essentials during grid failure.
