South Africans are sick and tired of load shedding. We pay ridiculous rates for a subpar service by a service provider that’s about as reliable as the weather in Cape Town.
If you’re looking for an alternative solution for your hot water supply, solar might be the answer. Solar geysers are awesome, here’s why.
Cuts Your Electricity Bill in Half
As I’ve mentioned before, we pay ridiculously high rates for our electricity. Some areas pay as high as R2 per unit. The average household spends around R1200 to R2000 per month on electricity, depending on which appliances they use daily. Imagine only having to pay half of your bill. Who knows what you could do with the rest!
Solar Geysers Generate Hot Water Even When Overcast
If you think solar power can only be generated when the sun is shining, think again. Even when it’s overcast, the rays of the sun reach the solar panels, thus producing energy. South African is the perfect country for solar power because we receive a generous amount of sunshine throughout the year.
Solar Is the Future
Solar has become the preferred method of water heating in many new homes as more building contractors include solar geysers systems. Solar is extremely environmentally friendly and one of the most reliable sources of energy. Additionally, it seems Eskom needs all the help it can get to take the strain of their grid.
You are missing out on massive savings every month if you haven’t installed a solar water heating system in your home yet. Just think about what you could do with an extra R1000 to spend as you please instead of wasting it on unreliable service.
It all starts with a simple solar geyser installation. Don’t hesitate to speak to the team at Renaissance Solar if you have any questions. Give us a call for a free quote today!
