Solar Panels

Everywhere you look, solar panels are gaining ground. This is especially true in South Africa. Thanks to our naturally sunny weather, it’s no wonder why more and more people make the investment. In addition to the affordability factor and the big drop in prices, there is also the matter of saving loads of money energy-wise.

But isn’t the whole installation process a complicated one? And what makes one panel more special than the other?

Apart from providing South Africa with the best possible solar panels the market has to offer, we also pride ourselves on keeping people informed. Here are some quick facts, considerations and features, to get you started.

What is a Solar Panel?

Solar panels are made up of silicone cells, which is the magic component for turning sun-rays into energy. Some panels will have a single, solid silicone cell (monocrystalline), while others will have pieces of silicone that have been melted together (polycrystalline). These cells are then fixed inside a frame, and covered with a protective glass.

When the panel is properly angled, it will capture sun-rays and convert it into DC energy. In turn, the DC energy gets converted to AC energy via an inverter, which you can use inside the home.

The Costs of Installation

Even though solar panels were expensive several years ago, the price drop has been dramatic. Now, it just makes more economical sense to invest in solar panels, because they give you some independence from the grid, save you money in the long run, and they are environmentally friendly.

In terms of actual pricing, everything depends on your needs and your budget. You can start by adding a solar geyser and test the efficiency for yourself. And from there you can install more.

The good news is that Solar Advice offers the most affordable panels with the highest efficiency levels, right to your doorstep. Only choose between our quality range of panels, which are just as durable as they are impressive.
