One thing that all South Africans share is frustration with load shedding. Whether it means spending an extra 30 minutes in traffic or having your dinner plans derailed because of a stage change, the pains of load shedding touch us all in one way or another. Fortunately, solar power provides a viable and sustainable solution for managing the woes of load shedding at home while saving you money and allowing you to do your bit for the environment.
Although Solar Photovoltaic (PV) have a reputation for being expensive, people tend to forget that long-term savings offset any major installation costs. On average, it takes about 6 to 8 years to see a return on your investment, but once this period has passed, you’ll effectively get your electricity for free. Furthermore, Solar PV typically have a life span of about 25 to 30 years, which means your electricity worries won’t resurface for many years to come!
What’s more, solar power, unlike fossil fuels, is a renewable energy source. This means that there is no danger of it being depleted in the future. Also, unlike fossil fuels, solar power isn’t bad for the environment, so relying on Solar PV reduces greenhouse gas emissions, thereby combatting air pollution and leading to both decreased water usage and pollution.
Ultimately, investing in Solar PV is a wise decision for anyone who wants to save money, do their part for the environment, and ensure a stable and reliable energy supply.
