The short answer to the question ‘are PV solar panels worth it’ is a resounding yes! The phenomenal growth of the solar industry in South Africa is testimony to the real value attached to switching from Eskom power to an eternal renewable source of energy, harvested freely from the sun.
Being a privileged country that enjoys more sunshine hours a year than most European countries, which are already deeply entrenched in using solar power instead of environmentally destructive coal-powered electricity, South Africans are investing more and more in PV solar panels as their source of power and hot water.
Are PV solar panels worth it
The cost benefits of switching to solar power for home owners and business owners are infinite once the payback period is over.
Though there are still many who are reluctant, due to the initial outlay for PV solar panels, with solar companies like Renaissance Solar in Cape Town doing all they can with finance options, it’s becoming easier and easier to step into a future free of high electricity bills.
The resulting cost-effectiveness, along with the real benefits to our environment has been the major force driving people to invest in solar products like never before.

Rising electricity tariffs vs more affordable PV solar panels
Every time you get punched in the gut with yet another increase in electricity tariffs, PV solar panels are becoming more and more affordable!
There has been so much strain placed on families and businesses in the past two years, with the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, that electricity has in reality become a luxury for many.
Whatever it takes for you to invest in a PV solar system or solar hot water system, you can look forward to paying much less for electricity because you’ll be meeting your energy requirements from solar energy.
Just the addition of a solar hot water system will shave your electricity bill by up to 40%, if not more, helping to alleviate the additional pressure a failing economy has placed on us.
The payback period on PV solar panels
While it may be a real pinch financially to fork out for the installation of solar panels, there’s no doubt about the fact that the savings that begin from day one, go a long way to making the payback period lighter on your pocket than trying to keep up with exorbitant electricity tariffs!
Once your payback period is over you’ll be enjoying absolutely free energy, giving you savings in the long run that’ll make you eternally grateful for the step you took towards investing in a solar system.
