Can solar save you money

Can Switching To Solar Panels Really Save You Money?

It’s easy to be sceptical of new products when so many investment opportunities claim that it will save you tons of money. While solar panels are still a relatively new concept, the short answer is yes, you will save money by reducing your electricity costs. That said, there are some factors to consider such as daily sunlight hours, angle and size of the roof as well as the electricity rates in your area.

The first step to take is to calculate your current electricity costs on an annual basis. In recent years we’ve seen a rapid increase in electricity prices in South Africa, and if that’s any indication of what’s still to come in the next few years, we can expect more volatile increases. Utility rate increases are an added incentive for solar users since solar energy prices won’t ever go up.

You are taking control of your energy source when you generate your own with a rooftop PV System. The only costs involved in installing solar panels is the upfront investment expenses and any other electricity charges should your panels not completely subsidise your electricity use. This will primarily depend on the size of your PV system in relation to your roof. That’s why it’s important to employ the help of professionals like NuPower for the installation of your solar panels.

While the financial aspect is one of the biggest incentives for investing in solar panels, money isn’t the only motivator. You will also be protecting the environment due to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Regardless of whether you’re looking at saving money or becoming more eco-friendly, a solar panel system will generate significant savings for homeowners as well as business owners. Speak to a representative at NuPower about how you too can become more self-sufficient today.

As NuPower solar water heating systems and other renewable energy systems have reached the mark of over 12 000 installations, the demand for electricity is still increasing, along with the cost of electricity, making more and more home owners and property owners move towards any renewable energy source that will free them from these costs, imposed by a single electricity supplier with a complete monopoly over the supply of power.

NuPower Solar offers an end to end service, taking clients from the drawing board after a representative has carried out a site inspection (and of course, on acceptance of the quote), to the design of a tailor-made system designed to meet all the requirements of each application, and finally, the installation of the system by no one other than an accredited NuPower installer!

NuPower Solar does not just pay lip service to a reputation for excellence earned over the years, and it shows; not only in the quality of their own NuPower Solar Water Heating Systems and those of Victron Energy PV Systems, but in the fact that they are the only solar company that has a dedicated 24 hour emergency hotline, connecting clients to an extensive network of dealerships that reach across South Africa!

The team of engineers at NuPower are passionate about educating their clients about their options for renewable energy, and the products that would work best for their specific application, ensuring that each client is able to make an informed final decision about the solar system they will be investing in.

Ten years & close on 12 500 solar installations later, NuPower Solar remains on the cutting edge of renewable energy solutions!

NuPower Solar, with its head office in Johannesburg, is one of the leading national solar companies in South Africa, providing renewable energy solutions throughout the country, with their main focus being their expertise in Solar Water Heating Systems designed for domestic, commercial and industrial applications.

The unrivalled reputation for design expertise and experience earned by the NuPower team is based on 10 years’ worth of offering customers affordable solar solutions that are personalised to meet the needs of individual customers, and with close on 12 500 solar systems under the belt, it’s not surprising that NuPower has become a trusted name in the solar industry.

Most of us have absolutely no understanding of the technicalities of solar products and how solar components are put together in order to make the connection to renewable energy possible, and choosing a company that does not have the requisite experience, background or reputation could turn out to be a very expensive mistake!

We need a team like NuPower that we can trust to make sense of the pieces that would make up the whole of a solar water heating system and other details that pave the way to the design and installation of a solar solution that will be ideal for your use and still fit your budget!

Making a major investment like this is not something to be taken lightly, not only is it an investment in a future free of excessive electricity bills, it is also an addition to your property, private, commercial or industrial, that will increase its value to a great extent for the future.

Without the assistance of experts that can be relied on for their honesty, like the team at NuPower, most of us have no idea about the differences between vacuum tube systems and flat plate systems, not to mention the real difference between off-grid or grid-tied systems; it’s enough to leave the brightest of us floundering in the dark!

Aside from innovative solar solutions and superb customer service, NuPower Solar products, added to PV systems manufactured by Victron Energy, is an assurance for customers that quality is the bottom line at NuPower Solar.  NuPower honesty is a given as they clarify exactly how these mysterious technicalities can be brought together to suit individual renewable energy requirements.

NuPower has supplied some of the biggest commercial and industrial companies in South Africa with solar solutions that have had a major impact on running costs in terms of keeping the lights on and hot water flowing for businesses during their ten years in the industry, one need only look at some of their biggest clients to get a sense of what you can expect from this team!

There were major losses to business during downtimes experienced at the time that Eskom load shedding became a part of daily life in South Africa, and while this load shedding has been staved off for a few years now, there are rumblings from Eskom itself that further load shedding can be expected in the not too distant future – come the elections and we will more than likely be back in the stew again with load shedding!

Add to this the loss of trust in Eskom as layers of large scale corruption are still being peeled back, and ridiculous electricity tariff increases, and the argument that solar energy is ‘too expensive’ becomes a moot point.

As electricity tariffs increase, the price solar panels and components are coming down on a regular basis, and, with the assistance of the team at NuPower Solar, solar water heating systems and other renewable energy solutions are now within reach of all South Africans!

Pick apart your electricity bill, calculate how much of that bill is made up of simply heating water; this calculation should at least motivate you to test the waters by contacting the team at NuPower Solar for a meeting with one of their expert consultants, and a quotation that will change the bottom line of your bill completely, from day one!
