Benefits of Solar Power
Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills.
Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year life cycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in South Africa, and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate 3628,74 Kg of carbon emissions each year — the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.
You won’t be at the mercy of utility providers. They can raise energy costs all they want but you won’t be affected at all. When there are power cuts, you still have power since you rely on solar energy, which is a renewable source. As long as the sun is up there, even during cloudy days, you’re good.
