Unless you are an expert in your own right, when you choose to move over to renewable energy, you are going to want a team like NuPower Solar to offer you sound, knowledgeable advice that will lead to the installation of a solar system that will last well into the future, pay itself off quickly and leave you with nothing but the benefit of free hot water or power for life.
Taking a look at the advances in technology and the increasing manufacturing scale of photovoltaic (PV) products, it is clear that PV systems have increased inefficiency, which has also led to a cost reduction in PV installations throughout the world, and that includes sunny South Africa!
NuPower Solar uses only Victron Energy PV components in their installations, and with these award-winning European products added to NuPower products, you can be certain of a quality installation that will most definitely stand the test of time and every kind of weather!
Looking around at many of the new residential properties, developments and other commercial buildings going up with solar panels at a speed that belies the economy, it is clear to see that renewable energy is the way of the future in South Africa, working in tandem to save property owners money, add resale value to their investments and to protect the environment from the foundations up.
Unfortunately, Eskom is very reluctant to let go of its grip on high-end electricity users, because they are the ones who subsidise electricity supply to low-income households, and, added to a massive amount of money lost through corruption, Eskom is going to hang on as long as possible because they need the money now more than ever to support and upgrade their wobbling infrastructure!
The more high-end electricity users that invest in solar systems, the more the same low-income households are going to pay for their power, it is a vicious cycle that will keep going until Eskom gets its act together on a myriad of levels and sets up a workable system that will include feed-in-tariffs, as the majority of the world already does!
It’s sad to think that Eskom has such a stranglehold on South Africans as the only electricity supplier, (and a major supplier of income for the government!) that renewable energy is being held back at a time when it has become a vitally important contribution to the health of our environment, and bringing well-deserved financial relief to homeowners and commercial property owners, based solely on domination and greed.
Cape Town is the only place in South Africa that has managed to squeeze out some form of selling electricity back to the grid, but it is still nowhere near the standards seen around the globe. The good news is that there are solutions that NuPower Solar can offer that will still make a major difference to your electricity bill with PV installations!
If you are living in an area with no access to the grid, or have the financial means to replace Eskom completely, an Off-Grid PV system that offers superior efficiency and long life expectancy is the way to go, and NuPower has the expertise to design and install off-grid systems that can vary from a few hundred watts to several hundreds of kilowatts in size.
Grid-Tied PV systems are the most popular and affordable solar systems being used for commercial, industrial and large residential use, offering the most efficient application for those whose highest energy use is during sunshine hours.
If you are looking at great Back-up power solutions, which charge batteries from Eskom to keep the lights on when there are power outages, NuPower will assist you in putting together the perfect system to run as much power as you need during blackouts.
Although the head office is based in Gauteng, NuPower is a national company that has dealer networks spread throughout South Africa to provide outstanding service to clients from the Western Cape to Kwazulu Natal and everywhere in-between!
Just give the team a call and let them take it from there to offer you renewable energy solutions that will suit your power requirements perfectly, at affordable prices! The team at NuPower is a pleasure to work with! They are passionate about the difference the over 16 500 solar systems already installed by this team has made, which has also earned them many satisfied clients over the years, and at the same time mirrored their absolute commitment to a greener South Africa!
