Are you connected to solar energy yet?

Everybody who’s anybody has a lot to say about what’s happening to our world in terms of climate change, and most know full well that the burning of fossil fuels will continue to be the main culprit for the escalation in climate change, and still they burn.

Yet despite this, and the ever-increasing electricity hikes, many are still hesitant about choosing the cleaner, environmentally friendly option of solar energy, especially in South Africa with its sunny skies.

So, what makes people think twice about solar energy?


The costs associated with investing in a solar energy system is at the forefront of our minds where it comes to making the right decision about solar energy.

It’s easy to think that the cost of investing in a solar energy system installation is out of your league, but with solar panels dropping in prices faster than Eskom can raise tariffs, solar energy is now within reach of many more South Africans.

Giant leaps in the development of new technology to lower costs, as well as to increase energy storage, contribute towards a future not too far distant, in which every home will sport solar panels.

If just 2 minutes of sunshine can sustain the energy needs for all of humanity, is it really worth taking your time about getting connected to that raw, natural energy?

Ultimately, it’s all about finding the right system to suit your needs with the help of a trusted solar energy company like Renaissance Solar, so that you’ll be able to make an informed decision about your move into solar energy.

And on the sunny side?

Well, looking at the benefits of solar energy makes biting the bullet and putting your money where your mouth is a little easier.

So what are the benefits?

  • Saving money

You work hard for your money, which is why the initial outlay in a solar system can hurt, but, once that’s out of the way, opening your electricity bill will become a champagne moment every month!

Besides which, this is when you start seeing that it is really a great return on investment.

  • Increasing your property value

Today, buyers have become far more interested in investing in homes that already have a solar panel system installed, making your home more attractive in terms of energy efficiency and eco-friendliness will go a long way to securing the best price possible.

  • Low maintenance

Really, it’s a case of having your solar system installed, sitting back and enjoying all the benefits that come with not having to maintain the system. It’s a sure-fired way to reap all that’s good about solar energy, for many years to come.

  • Carbon footprint reduction

If reducing your carbon footprint is as important to you as it should be to all, installing a solar power system will go a long way to doing your bit towards fighting global warming. It’s time for us to start giving back for what we’ve taken from Mother Nature!

  • Do with it what you choose to do

You may already have those solar lamps and lights adorning your home and garden, but with a little more help from solar panels, you can use the power of the sun to charge batteries, generate hot water, electricity and to power lights.
