Alternative Energy Solutions In South Africa: Why Solar Is The Best Option

By January 8, 2021January 27th, 2021No Comments

South Africans are becoming more aware of the effects conventional electricity has on the environment. We are also bearing the brunt of an unreliable service provider and ever-increasing electricity tariffs driving us to seek an alternative energy solution. To top it off we are in the middle of a global pandemic and the South African economy as we know it is on the brink of a total collapse. Saving money is on the top of everyone’s priority list.  

Solar power is an obvious energy solution for a country like ours with abundant sunshine year-round. However, does it make financial sense for home and business owners to invest in solar power? Is it more affordable than fossil fuels?

It’s best to look at the price of a solar energy system for over 20 years.
