3 Ways Solar Power Systems Can Benefit You

By Hannes | June 3, 2018 | Blog

It is no secret that solar energy is the way of the future. More and more people are becoming conscious of the environment and the effects greenhouse gas emissions have on the planet. But eco-friendliness isn’t the only reason someone would want to install solar power systems, other reasons include the value it will add to your home as well as how it can benefit you financially.

Top reasons to invest in solar power systems for your home in Cape Town

#1 It will save you money

Not right away but in the long run. Eskom charges R2 per kWh. In most instances, a household would use 20 – 30 kWh per day. That equates to an electricity bill of around R1000 – R2000 per month. Eskom increases the price on an annual basis (or whenever they feel like it). An entry-level solar system from Max Yield will cost you R78 000 and will last you 30+ years. Now you do the maths.

#2 It will reduce your carbon footprint

As already mentioned, you will be more eco-friendly by using solar power. Electricity is generated when we convert coal, natural gas, oil, nuclear power into energy. This, however, creates greenhouse gas emissions which is bad for the environment. Solar power is created when we convert the sun’s UV rays into energy by transferring electrons in silicon cells utilizing the photons of the sun’s light. It has no negative effect on the environment.

#3 It is a reliable source of energy

Eskom has become less and less reliable in the last couple of years. Every year, especially in winter, they implement load shedding to reduce the heavy load on the grids. This isn’t only uncomfortable for the people, but harmful to your electric devices. Max Yield offers a complete off-grid system so you don’t have to rely on Eskom anymore.

If you strive to become less reliant on Eskom while reducing your carbon footprint, you might want to consider investing in Solar Power Systems for your home. Get in touch with the team today to start reaping the benefits of solar power.
