How much you can save, as well as how much your system would cost, will depend on many factors – like where your home or business is, your roof, the type of appliances you have and your tariff. In most cases, our systems save between 50 and 75% of an electricity bill. These savings mean that the systems can pay themselves off quickly – typically in less than 7 years – saving you hundreds of thousands of rands over their lifespan.
There are also alternative payment solutions available, such as leasing the system from us (meaning you save from day one), or deducting the system from your business’ income tax.
