Building your own unique system

 

Load shedding Solutions:

As South African’s we are faced with load shedding, this has become part of our daily life, but it DOESN'T have to.  You can overcome load shedding with a solar power and an energy storage system. 

 

Solar Energy Living can supply a very effective power source to keep the power ON when load shedding cuts the power to your home or business. This will allow you to carry on with your normal activities watch TV, surf the internet, and work on a computer and no more school children doing their homework in the dark during load shedding.

Grid tided Systems

Grid-Tied Solar Power Kits are used to capture and supply power to your grid connection during sunlight hours. For instance, if your energy use is 4kw at any point and you have a 3kw system it would provide 3kw in peak sun to supplement the power usage and obtain the rest needed from the grid, inevitably reducing your energy bill.

Below are Grid-Tied Solar Power Kits that include a discounted price because they are sold as a complete package, also fantastic as a starting point to work from if you are looking to take that next step.

If your choice is not to use Solar panels to charge your system, the system will charge up during the night when electricity is cheaper and then be able to supply during the day. If there is a power short fall this system will pull the power from the gird to stabilize the system. However with the right daily management of your energy system this will not be needed.

 

The below Grid tided systems are designed in a way that they can be upgraded at a later stage. So you will have the choice to buy the Solar panels at a later stage therefore make the project less costly. If this is your choice you need to remember that your energy system will charge up during the night.
