Why not use the energy of the sun?
Every year the sun sends around 2.000 KWH per m² to earth ... free of charge!
Why not use some of it favorably for your own purposes?
Why Solar Energy?!
Solar electricity is generated using a free and abundant Energy source – the sun.
In a single hour, the sun transmits more energy to the Earth’s surface than the world uses in a year.
This clean, renewable energy can be converted into free Electricity to power you.
Placed on the roof or on the ground, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels capture the Sunlight and convert it into electrical Energy, measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) otherwise known as units of electricity.
When you group numerous solar panels together to form a complete Solar Power System, you can use the free solar electricity to power you, being less reliant on expensive grid or diesel electricity.
The size of a solar power system is measured in kilowatt peak (kWp). This is the Power the solar would produce under a set of standard test conditions*. Africa is the ideal location for solar electricity; being on the equator where the sun is high in the sky all day provides great conditions for getting the most out of a Solar system.
How do solar panels work?
1. The solar panels are frames made up of solar (PV) cells (which are layers of silicon). The Sun’s Radiation hits these cells and is converted to direct current (DC) power.
2. This DC power travels to an electrical inverter, which converts DC power into alternating current (AC) Power.
3. A distribution board and smart controls manage the operation of the solar power with the utility Grid or Generator Power.
4. The AC electricity produced is just like the power supplied by your utility company.
Unlimited and reliable
The sun shines every day without fail, so the Energy it produces is stable and unlimited; a secure
source of power for the future. The solar panels produce energy from daylight, so they still work on
Unlike fossil fuels which create harmful air pollution and global warming, solar energy is clean and
renewable. Businesses that invest in solar show a commitment to environmental performance – attractive to customers.
Easy and flexible
Solar is straightforward, easy to install and very low-maintenance. The power from the panels is warrantied for 25 years with an expected lifetime for many years beyond this. Solar can be installed almost anywhere; all you need to get started is a building or some land, then the System can be tailored to the space available and your power demands.
