Benefits of Solar
Solar Photovoltaic (PV) as an electricity generation source is sustainable, indefinitely renewable and environmentally friendly.
Long lifespan and low maintenance
An added benefit of solar PV is that the modules last for 25 years and require almost no maintenance.
Technology cost efficiencies
Most of the world’s solar modules are made from crystalline silicon (or sand in its basic form). As greater quantities of solar modules are produced worldwide at greater efficiencies, the cost of solar PV keeps becoming more and more competitive.
By offsetting the electricity purchased from your local utility, solar PV can create substantial monthly cost savings. In South Africa the general payback period of a solar PV system is 5-6 years. With a system that lasts for 25 years, this means approximately 20 years of free, clean energy!
