If you’re in the market to invest in solar power and are tired of paying a fortune just to have hot water on tap, you may be wondering whether or not to start with a solar water heating system, or whether to invest in a PV solar system to heat your water as well as keep appliances running, in which case you’re probably debating the question; solar PV for water heating?
More and more South Africans are making the move to solar power, with a vast majority of them starting out with a solar water heating system, but there’s one step better, to heat water and keep the lights on, and that’s through buying a solar PV system to do it all!
With an average of around 2500 hours of sunshine per year in South Africa, we should have solar panels fitted to every roof possible, since we are so well positioned geographically to reap the benefits of solar power.
With the last round of load shedding currently on the go, we are all once again feeling the detrimental effects of being left in the dark and without hot water.
We never know how long the electricity will be off, which means that a full freezer can defrost to the extent that the contents all have to be discarded; just another expensive downside to load shedding.
When you take this into account along with the high price we pay for electricity, it’s definitely time to take the leap and invest in a solar PV system to survive an unstable grid.
