|Beating load shedding with photovoltaic solar systems
While load shedding seems to have once more become a thing of the past, South Africans know that you can never fully trust Eskom when it comes to keeping the lights on. Load shedding causes immense frustration, where both households and businesses suffer. Each time the power goes poof, households are unable to perform regular tasks, while businesses have to wave farewell to their money. Due to this reality, alternative energy sources such as photovoltaic solar power systems are quickly becoming a popular way to beat load shedding.
Thanks to the high levels of radiation in our country, solar South Africa offers amazing alternative energy potential. With more than double the solar radiation output of Europe and more than 2,500 hours of sunshine averaged a year, there is no question as to why solar power kits are flying off the shelf.
How does it work?
Photovoltaic solar power systems are perfect for beating load shedding. When the national grid is providing electricity, you can simply go about your business as normal, knowing that your solar panel is storing the beautiful rays of sun in preparation.
As soon as load shedding strikes, the solar power that has been saved in the storage battery will kick in, powering your household or business for a certain period of time.
What about generators?
While many households and businesses choose to make use of generators as a way of beating load shedding, this can easily become a tedious task. Generators can be expensive to buy and are extremely noisy, which is not always great for business. Many generators can also be quite tough to start-up, leaving you hot, sweaty and frustrated with load shedding. While generators may seem like an easier and cheaper option, they can become quite costly in the long run, mainly due to the fuel that they use.
If you’re looking for a greener alternative, then solar power is the perfect backup power option for you.
