It is nearly impossible to live without electricity these days. Everything we own needs an energy source to make it work. Unfortunately, our dependence on our energy suppliers come with somewhat of a challenge since they aren’t nearly as reliable as we need them to be.
When we look at other options, gas and solar power come to mind. While gas is better for the environment than the traditional coal-fired electricity, it will never be as eco-friendly as solar power. Additionally, you’ll still have to buy gas and if you don’t adhere to the strict safety measures that accompany gas usage, the results can be detrimental.
When it comes to solar energy, the negatives are almost non-existent. Solar energy is free and because South Africa is known for its abundant sunshine, it’s an extremely reliable source of energy, even on overcast days.
How, you might ask? By installing a solar battery bank of course. A Solar battery bank will allow you to store unused solar power so you can take advantage of it when the sun isn’t shining.
If you’re a little sceptical about completely switching over to solar, you can start with solar water heating and work your way up whenever you’re ready. Did you know that your geyser amounts for at least half your energy bill each month? And by installing a solar geyser you’ll slash your energy bill in half right of the bat and you’ll always have hot water at your disposal, regardless of the supplier’s load shedding schedule.
If you’re tired of taking cold showers or not being able to cook a meal because of load shedding at the worst possible times, it’s time to switch to solar.
