When Is the Best Time of Year to Install Solar Panels?

By March 7, 2019 No Comments

So, you’ve been contemplating switching to solar for a while now. Your electricity bills are constantly increasing and you’re subjected to regular power cuts which means that solar power is looking more and more attractive. If you’re questioning whether or not to take the leap into solar, you’re probably wondering which time of the year is best for installing solar panels.

Many people believe that autumn and winter is the best time due to lower demand. But the truth is, NOW is the best time, no matter the season. Electricity rates are predicted to continue to rise but solar never will. Solar doesn’t require any cost to fuel – since the sun is free for all – and only demands minor maintenance and operational costs. Which means you won’t fall victim to the ever increasing electricity rates or load shedding provided by Eskom.

Quality solar panels installed by professionals offer a 25-year warranty which will provide you with reliable solar energy for many years to come. Solar generates more energy in summer than you can use which is why you should consider solar batteries to store energy for overcast or rainy days.

Solar power solutions are continually decreasing in price and chances are that you’ll pay much less if you wait a few months. That said, you can start saving on your electricity bill right away by installing a solar water heater. It is a proven fact that by installing a solar geyser you can cut your electricity bill in half.

There’s no time like the present and the sooner you install solar, you can start reaping the benefits. For a reliable and affordable solar solution, speak to the team at Nupower or book your consultation to receive an obligation free quote today!
