Frequently asked questions:

How do Solar Panels work?
The silicone cell is responsible for taking sunrays and storing it in what people refer to as DC energy. From there, it runs through an inverter to establish an AC current you can use inside your home or business. Here are some quick facts about solar panels to give some perspective on your investment.

How strong are the Panels?
Due to the construction of a solar panel, it is more than capable of surviving harsh natural elements. The aluminium frame and the tempered glass protecting the interior cells make it possible for solar panels to survive typical South African weather.

How long do they last?
Even though warranties on solar panels usually range between ten years or less, it does not mean panels stop being efficient at this time. In fact, solar panels can keep collecting sun rays for twenty years or more. However, the level of efficiency decreases as time goes by.

Panel maintenance
It literally comes down to keeping the protective glass clean and to check if there are any obstructions that block direct sunlight, such as branches from a high tree.

Roof-mounted or on the ground?
