Why Now Is The Best Time To Switch To Solar In South Africa

By July 29, 2019 August 6th, 2019 No Comments

Electricity rates are outrageous in South Africa and people are starting to feel frustrated about the fact that we can’t do anything about it. To top it off, we have to face inconvenient power outages (load shedding) and rate increases when we use more in winter.

Load shedding damages your electronics which you then need to replace at your own expense and having to resort to takeaways during power cuts also hurts your pocket. Nothing about the whole scenario is fair.

There are talks that Eskom is planning for 10% tariff increases annually for the next three years. We are nothing less than imprisoned by our service providers and they leave us no choice than to look for alternative solutions. One of the few options we as South Africans can utilise to escape from the tight grip of Eskom is solar power.

Free Yourself from Extravagant Electricity Prices by Switching to Solar

You can run your entire home on solar power but a simple solar geyser installation can already cut your electricity bill in half right away. And don’t even worry about overcast or rainy days, you can use solar batteries to store additional energy for future use.

It’s true that you need to purchase a solar system and it isn’t exactly cheap. But in a year or two, you’ll have paid off the investment and start seeing massive savings – FREE renewable energy for many years to come.

Install a quality solar system, generate your own electricity and take back the power. It will help you be self-sustainable, more eco-friendly, take the pressure off the struggling grid and save you loads of money in the long run.
