|Beat the Darkness of Load Shedding With Solar Backup Power!
With load shedding schedules causing havoc on a grand scale, many households and businesses are consequently suffering serious inconveniences, with the latter also losing business and money each time the power goes off. As a result, reliable and cost-effective alternative energy sources are much needed!
As many know, solar power is an alternative and renewable energy source that needs no real introduction to the market place. Just about everyone has heard of the wonders of solar energy, which is why it’s such a pity that more households have not yet taken the step towards converting their homes to solar power! Better still, solar power with backup batteries provides an effective means of remaining lit up and powered up during load shedding times.
While some choose to make use of generators during load shedding, this can become a tedious chore. Generators can be expensive, are extremely noisy (especially to those with sensitive hearing), some can be difficult to start-up, and most importantly, they can also be costly because of the fuel they use. So, if you’re looking for a greener alternative – solar power is the backup power option of choice.
For those who want to stay connected to the national grid and simply have a minor backup power system to use, solar panels is a great option. Solar systems that are linked to a backup or storage battery are great, as sufficient solar power can be stored to serve your home for a certain period of time.
How does it work?
Well, actually much the same as a regular solar panel system does – the sun’s energy is converted into electricity, which is stored in the solar panel system’s backup battery. This stored up energy is then only accessed when there is a power outage.
At Soventix, we design customised backup power kits to meet the specific needs of each of our clients. Our backup power kits are made up of batteries and/or generators that offer sufficient power to run a few essential appliances during load shedding hours – just what you need to get you through those few hours of scheduled darkness!
