How Effective Is Solar Power Really?

By January 5, 2021January 27th, 2021No Comments

In the last two decades, solar power usage has increased significantly. Both in residential and commercial settings, people are reducing their dependence on the traditional grid and turning to clean renewable energy. That said, there are still many people who question the efficiency of solar power and are not fully aware of just how cost-effective it is in the long run. Switching to solar is fantastic for the environment – everyone knows that – but is it as beneficial as everyone says?

The cost of solar panels has decreased tremendously in the last few years making it more affordable for everyone and not just a chosen view. Whether you intend to live in the same home for the next 20 years or plan on moving soon, investing in solar power is always a wise decision as it will increase the value of your property.

Solar panels, especially in sunny South Africa, can capture and hold more than enough power to supply your home completely, taking pressure off the grid and your budget. You can invest in a solar water heater which will cut your electricity by nearly 45% or eliminate your electricity bill with a comprehensive solar solution.

You might be wondering when you will start seeing a return on investment or “break-even”. For many homeowners, it can be anything from 5 to 7 years. But, with the rate of electricity tariffs are increasing right now, it might be much sooner!
