By January 11, 2021January 27th, 2021No Comments

We are one month into the new year, and what better time to overhaul your mindset and your home’s energy efficiency. I do not have to tell you how bad conventional coal-fired electricity is for the environment. I suspect you already know. Furthermore, we all agree that efficiency is the last word we can use to describe our electricity service provider. Load shedding and ever-increasing tariffs have become part of our daily lives.  

So, how can we make our homes more energy-efficient in 2021? By going solar! Solar energy is the best alternative energy solution available to us these days. And it is getting more affordable with every passing year. 

A simple solar geyser installation will set you back around R25000, but it will save you up to 50% on your monthly electricity bill. The average household pays around R1500 to R2000 per month on electricity. A 50% savings will ensure you pay off your solar geyser in approximately two years whereafter you will generate hot water for free for many years to come. 

You can take it a step further and invest in a complete solar solution for around R150 000 from Nupower. This specific solar system generates anything from 12 to 18 units per day. While a little bit more expensive, it is still possible to pay off your investment in 5 to 7 years after which you’ll generate free electricity for many years to come. 

Solar power systems can last 2 to 3 decades with little to no maintenance needed. It doesn’t have any harmful effects on the environment, is a reliable source of electricity and is cost-effective in the long run.
