NuPower Solar – home to solar water heating systems in South Africa that are designed to last!

NuPower Solar is a nationwide company that specialises in creating custom solar solutions for domestic, commercial and industrial application, focussing on remaining on the cutting edge of solar technology by maintaining their commitment to quality and a serious approach to research and development.

NuPower Solar has achieved phenomenal success over the past ten years by remaining true to the use of high quality European solar products such as Victron Energy PV Systems, and the exceptional quality of solar products designed, developed and manufactured locally by the NuPower team in South Africa.

Solar energy is no longer considered anywhere near as expensive as it was in decades gone by, and as the costs of electricity have gone up, the costs associated with solar technology have come down, and this is a trend that is set to continue – solar costs will keep coming down while conventional electricity keeps going up!

Knowing that you are no longer going to be at the mercy of electricity giants like Eskom and that you will be looking forward to monthly savings that average between 40 to 60% just on water heating, is going to make the investment you make in a solar water heating system from NuPower look puny in comparison!

Conventional energy requires huge reserves of fuel that we just don’t have in South Africa, the minute we have a shortage of fuel (which we have to import at great expense!), electricity rates increase, and as the demand for electricity grows, we can definitely look forward to a fairly uncertain future where it comes to the stability of conventional electricity in our country.

The mission at NuPower Solar is to offer cost effective solar water heating solutions to suit large and small projects, offering highly competitive market related prices that bring solar water heating systems within reach of every South African business and household.

When weighing the pros and cons of solar water heating as opposed to conventional water heating, bear in mind that where a normal geyser generally only lasts an average of about five years, a solar geyser can easily last up to twenty years, and that is before you even get to the fact that you will have repaid the investment in your solar water heating system within three to four years!

If you are looking for a solar company you can rely on for real expertise that has been tried and tested in the field over many years, along with customer service that will never let you down, which includes a 24/7 emergency contact, then you have every reason to start exploring the fantastic benefits of high quality solar water heating systems with NuPower!

Because the experienced technical staff at NuPower work closely with their sales teams and dealer networks throughout South Africa, you are guaranteed a streamlined solar experience that will take you from design to installation without missing a step!

If you are planning to avoid increases in electricity tariffs of up to 20% in 2018 it’s time to contact NuPower Solar!

Just in case you missed it, in an article published in IOL on the 14th June 2017, Eskom has apparently decided that in order to achieve ‘financial stability’ in the next seven years, they would need NERSA to agree to agree to tariff increases of 20% – ready to rush out to join the revolution gaining momentum in the world of solar technology in South Africa on the heels of this trend? You should be!

As quoted in the article:

“Eskom should achieve financial sustainability in seven years, but that was conditional on the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) agreeing to tariff increases of 20%, the utility’s chief financial officer said yesterday.

“We believe we should be able to navigate Eskom to the point where it is financially sustainable. It should happen in the next seven-odd years, but that will depend on the tariff increases,” Anoj Singh told a select parliamentary committee on communications and public enterprises.

Singh did not dispute leaked reports that Eskom had applied to Nersa for tariff increases of 19.9% for private consumers and 27.3% for bulk-buying municipalities from next year July.”

If ever there was a time to seriously consider the value of investing in renewable energy, whether it is in the form of Solar Water Heating Systems, Grid-Tied, Off-Grid PV systems or the perfect Hybrid Solar solution to suit your energy requirements, now is the time!

While electricity tariffs continue to soar, major growth in solar technology has brought the price of renewable energy down, making the investment in the right solar system to suit your energy needs the kind of return on investment that is indisputably high!

NuPower Solar takes the mystery out of renewable energy and works with individual clients in order to determine exactly what their power needs are, and then to present them with cost effective solutions that are going to keep giving fantastic returns for many years to come.

Offering a wide range of quality solar products that have been tested and approved by the SABS, the NuPower team is proud to share the confidence they have in their products by offering a 10 year warranty on the bulk of their products.

Ten years in the solar industry has given this nationwide company the experience and knowledge to tackle projects big and small, specialising in Solar Water Heating systems (SWH) for domestic, commercial and industrial applications, and, with their own in-house installation teams in and around the Gauteng area, they are able to ensure that the same standard of quality and efficiency offered by the NuPower sales and technical fundi’s remain consistent.

As a nationwide company, NuPower Solar is also able to carry out installations on behalf of their dealer network spread throughout South Africa wherever possible, however, installations of solar water heating systems or PV systems are carried out to the same high standard that has come to be expected from any NuPower installation!

Even if you have to take out a bond on your home, or stretch your budget to the limits, within 3 to 4 years you will be completely free of having to pay the 40 to 60% you are now paying Eskom just to heat the water in your home or business!

Make the call today and let the NuPower team introduce you to a future that will not be imprisoned by outrageous electricity tariff increases!

Do you know the difference between PV systems and Solar Water Heating systems?

If you are looking at reducing your reliance on conventional electricity supply, whether it is because you want to save a small fortune on your electricity bill, contribute to the sustainability of the Earth’s natural resources or both, you are going to need the assistance of trusted experts to assist you with making the right decisions in order to avoid costly mistakes.

NuPower Solar has a wealth of experience and knowledge that has been accumulated during the course of 10 successful years in the solar industry in South Africa, and this team is fully committed to sharing this experience with clients in order to offer cost effective solutions that are designed to suit individual client needs.

The sales consultants and technical staff at NuPower work cohesively to refine the smallest detail of each solar system, and it is between these two teams that each client is enabled to make informed decisions about which solar system will support their requirements.

One of the things that confuse most of us is what the difference is between PV Solar systems (Photovoltaic panels) and Solar Water Heating Systems (SWH), and what each does in terms of reducing our reliance on electricity giants such as Eskom.

It is easy for those of us without technical knowledge to confuse PV Systems and Solar Water Heating Systems because both of these technologies use solar panels in order to harness the power of the sun, however, there are distinct differences in how each technology is applied.

PV systems are designed to convert sunlight directly into electricity, which can be used alone in areas with no access to the grid, or for people wanting to go off the grid completely to replace Eskom power. PV systems can be sized anywhere from a few hundred watts to several hundreds of kilowatts, depending on the power needs of the client.

NuPower uses only award winning European standard Victron Energy Systems when designing and installing Off-Grid PV systems, Grid-Tied PV systems and Back-up Power Solutions.  Grid-Tied PV systems are the most highly recommended solar system for commercial, industrial and large residential use, all of which, on a large scale, will ensure massive savings.

Solar Water Heating systems harness the energy of the sun in order to produce hot water, which already shaves off anywhere between 40 – 60% of your electricity bill – nothing uses as much electricity as water heating does!

Add to this that solar geysers easily last up to twenty years in comparison with the average lifespan of 5 years on a conventional geyser, and the fact that your SWH System will already have paid itself off within between 3-4 years on average and that from then on it will be completely free, it’s hard not to take a very serious look at investing in a high quality NuPower Solar Water Heating system!

A final word on the differences between PV Systems and SWH systems, aside from the cost factors, is that although PV Systems can theoretically be used to heat water, it is always going to be far more cost effective to install a Solar Water Heating system.

To find out more about NuPower Solar Water Heating systems and Victron Energy PV Systems, please do not hesitate to contact the team at NuPower, the outstanding support and guidance you will receive will make your decisions a thousand times easier than trying to figure it all out on your own!

Choosing the right solar water heating system the NuPower Solar way!

In the first place, when it comes to determining which technology would best suit your power needs in terms of a solar water heating system, you need to have a pretty clear idea of what your usage patterns are in general, which is easy to do in consultation with the team of experts at NuPower Solar.

This team has already racked up ten years’ worth of invaluable experience and knowledge in the solar water heating system industry, earning them a reputation for outstanding customer service, exceptional quality in terms of solar products used in the design and installation of NuPower solar systems, and an approach to assisting individual clients to find renewable energy solutions that are cost effective, based on highly competitive market related pricing!

Trusted by property developers, commercial property owners, and residential clients as well building companies working mainly for residential property owners on a project basis, NuPower Solar delivers customer service and support that is unrivalled in the solar industry in South Africa.

The NuPower team gives clients all the guidance they could possibly need in determining what their usage patterns are in general and from there, design the most cost effective solution to support the energy needs of each client.

The recommendation from NuPower is that if yours is a residential property and you have a pretty constant usage pattern, direct pumped vacuum tube systems will offer you excellent year-round performance, without the need for any maintenance at all, while direct pumped flat plates, or indirect flat plate systems are excellent value for money alternatives.

The area of installation is also a very important factor when it comes to which solar water heating system will best suit your requirements.  For instance, if you live in an area where freezing temperatures are common, NuPower will explain exactly how direct pumped vacuum tube systems, indirect flat plate systems or direct plate systems would be used for the best results.

Another point to bear in mind is that your solar geyser collector should be installed to face true north in South Africa for optimum performance, however, you can rely implicitly on the knowledge and expertise of the team at NuPower to ensure that you will achieve maximum benefit out of the position of your solar collectors!

Bear in mind that while direct systems are maintenance free, indirect systems are going to require maintenance on a yearly basis in order to keep them functioning as they should.

Should you be concerned about the aesthetic value of your property, you can rely on NuPower to ensure that not only will your solar water heating system add value to your property, it will also not spoil the aesthetics.

This is when it is recommended that only pumped direct, or pumped indirect systems are used as these place the geyser on the inside of either the ceiling space, the floor or even on a wall – the point is that it will not be seen!

Speak to the team at NuPower to set up an energy consultation in order to trust their extensive knowledge and experience to ensure that the solar water heating system you choose is the right one to suit your needs perfectly!

Make informed decisions about renewable energy solutions with the expertise of NuPower!

Here’s a scary statistic: 25% of all CO2 released into the earth’s atmosphere comes from the energy we use to run our homes! The percentage used by industry to keep the wheels of commerce turning is just too frightening to contemplate, yet round and round we go, turning on the lights, heating the water, running the washing machine and cooking our food, with little heed for the environmental future of our beautiful country.

Thankfully we do have a pretty decent percentage of South Africans who are very energy conscious and take all the measures they can to protect our environment, but it’s not enough. We are at the beginning of a very important renewable energy journey in South Africa, and contrary to popular belief, starting with something as basic as a solar water heating system not only makes a major dent in what we pay just to heat water via Eskom, it also moves us a step closer to a sustainable future.

NuPower Solar has been at the forefront of renewable energy for ten years already, applying their skill and knowledge to offer renewable energy solutions nationwide, aimed at both the domestic and commercial sectors. The role of this formidable team is to stay ahead of the move to solar energy in South Africa by designing, developing and installing renewable energy solutions that work, on many different levels.

In terms of NuPower solar water heating systems, NuPower is proud to offer Vacuum Tube Systems, Flat Plate Systems, Bulk Water Heating Systems and Heat Meters, the last of which are specifically aimed at saving a ton of money for bulk hot water users such as large residential buildings, hotels and hospitals.

PV systems from Victron Energy come in the shape of Off-grid PV Systems, Grid-Tied PV systems and backup solutions to suit all purposes; NuPower goes all the way to make sure that their services and products are unrivalled in South Africa!

Contact the friendly team at NuPower for all your solar solutions, they will give you honest advice and guidance, empowering you to make informed decisions about matching your renewable energy requirements to your budget!

How many increases in electricity tariffs can you accept before you turn to renewable energy?

Here are a few frightening facts about the future of Eskom tariffs looked at from a historical point of view, – as if the bill we receive from this erstwhile body now isn’t enough to leave us shaking in our boots every month!

After blackouts started in South Africa in 2008, throwing schedules and routines completely out of sync and causing major financial losses, Eskom threw yet another major spanner in the works by making an application, urgent as far as they were concerned, to increase electricity tariffs by 25.3% for the 2015/2016 financial year, and we are still paying for it, albeit in deceptively bite-sized increments.

The ultimate blackmail came in a veiled argument set forth by the then acting Eskom CEO, who stated that the financial suffering caused by high electricity tariffs would be far less than what it could really cost the economy should the blackouts continue! Really!

As if these tariff increases were not enough, Eskom is now facing serious allegations of corruption by the Parliament’s public enterprises committee, with information coming out about Eskom coming out that raises eyebrows, our blood pressure and electricity bills!

It’s not only corruption that has been eating a hole in our wallets, it’s also the fact that this embattled national electricity provider doesn’t even have enough coal in its stocks to keep us going much past 2017.

Bad planning has resulted in a situation where old facilities are failing and new ones cannot be built fast enough, hence our over-inflated electricity rates, and, with a growing population demanding supplies of electricity, tariffs will continue climbing!

If you are not already plugged into a renewable source of energy, you will just be facing electricity tariffs that are far higher than the inflation rate, which is not going to get any better, even in the foreseeable future!

If you are ready to join hundreds of thousands of South African families and businesses who have taken a major financial load off their shoulders by investing in solar energy, then NuPower Solar has the expertise to show you the way to massive savings by introducing you to high quality solar water heating systems, which will already shave between 40 to 60% off your electricity bill!

NuPower Solar is a national company passionate about being at the forefront of the revolution that will see solar panels installed on every roof in South Africa, using only high quality components such as PV systems from Victron, and their very own, SABS approved renewable energy products to pave the way to making the most of a great climate!

Five really great reasons to invest in a solar water heating system from NuPower Solar!

If you are not already aware of the fact that we face a future of water and food shortages, it’s definitely time to do a bit of research to find out just how much both are impacted by damaging environmental practices, and our collective belief that these kind of shortages are far in the future; they aren’t, everything we do now either damages the environment or contributes to protecting these precious resources right here and now!

The decision to preserve and protect our natural resources is one that should be done now, later will simply be too late!

Here are five really good reasons to call in passionate, experienced people like the team at NuPower Solar. With exceptional skills accumulated through many successful years in the solar industry backing them, this is one team willing to share a wealth of experience and knowledge with clients in order to turn South Africa into a solar powered nation for a healthier future!

The benefits of installing NuPower solar water heating systems, whether for domestic or commercial purposes:

1. The climate change battle:
If you are a warrior fighting climate change, then reducing carbon and other greenhouse emissions created by the burning of fossil fuels for the electricity that heats water will be important to you, which makes installing a solar water heating system a no-brainer, just for starters!

2. Protecting the quality of our air for generations to come:
Seriously, in a report by IOL in August 2017, they estimated that for every 1kWh of Eskom electricity generated, 1kg of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) gas is produced and 1.4 litres of water is used! With these kinds of statistics how much breathable air are we leaving for our children, and how much water is it costing us to use Eskom electricity? These are the greenhouse emissions that have already contributed to hugely negative environmental and health effects. Becoming a member of the NuPower solar water heating system means you become part of a desperately needed, overdue solution!

3. Protecting the quality of South African water as we begin to face shortages:
Solar water heating systems in every home, business or industry are going to be a first-line defence against substances such as mercury and other toxic metals that are yet another by-product of all our power plants burning fossil fuels, all of which pose a major threat to human life as they are released into the environment to contaminate our lakes, rivers and oceans. Solar water heating systems are as important to protecting our water from contamination as they are to lowering carbon emissions!

4. Exceptional savings on electricity bills:
We live in one of the best climates for solar energy in the world, and considering that upwards of 60% of your electricity bill consists of power used to heat water; the monthly savings are enormous and can be felt from the moment you install a solar water heating system! In fact, in most cases, your NuPower Solar water heating system will have paid for itself within five years, leaving you free to enjoy the savings for a long time to come!

5. Add exceptional value to your property:
NuPower Solar clients who have installed solar water heating systems have found that their properties sell for higher prices, and sell faster, than those powered by Eskom electricity, enjoying a return on investment that is unbeatable, whether they sell or not!

NuPower Solar has a wide range of products that have been tested and approved by the SABS, most of which carry a 10 year warranty, testimony to the confidence this team and their clients have in the quality of their solar products!

You will also be breaking the stranglehold that Eskom has on your purse strings, as well as contributing to a safer, healthier environment, giving fresh air and water an extra boost to make up for the damage inflicted by the burning of fossil fuels and other toxins released into the atmosphere.

South Africa is considered the third-best solar location in the world, and with prices of solar panels going down each year, renewable energy is becoming something that even the most cash-strapped household can invest in!

With the shocking tariffs we pay for Eskom electricity, if heating enough water for an average South African family accounts for between 40 to 60% of the electricity bill, why isn’t there a solar panel or ten on every home yet?  The initial outlay for a renewable energy solution is nothing when compared with future savings!
