Solar Panels:

Picture of solar panelWe supply poly and mono crystalline photovoltaic solar panels, as well as thin film panels. All our solar panels are locally manufactured at our partner suppliers factory in Epping, Cape Town, in the Western Cape and carry all necessary certification. We supply from 10 Watts up to 280 watts. These are the panels that we use in all our home solar systems.

 

Batteries:

We supply the following batteries:

Standard deep cycle 12 volt 105 amp hour batteries typically for small installations. We would normally use 2 or 4 of them maximum, for a small cottage that just has lights and a camping fridge. These batteries have a lifespan of between 2 – 5 years.

We typically install 8 of them at a time, up to a maximum of 32 batteries, for small houses all t he way up to large houses. Lifespan of these batteries is around 8 years, although with a well designed and maintained system you could get up to 12 years.

Lead crystal batteries for hassle free solar power – lead crystal batteries are the best batteries on the market. They cost more, but you can use less of them as they can be drawn to zero voltage and overcharge them without damaging them. They also charge much faster than regular batteries, and are completely maintenance free. Lifespan of these batteries can be as much as 18 years.

 

Charge controllers / regulators:

Inverters:
