Benefits of Solar Power in South African Schools

Money Saving
Shave thousands off your schools electricity bills each month by harnessing the power of the sun’s rays.
Ask us about our rent to buy options on our solar solutions and pay for your solar panels rather than your electricity bill monthly.

Environmental Awareness for Students
Lead by example. Bring an awareness to students about alternative renewable power sources. Our students of today will be tomorrows leaders and will have difficult decisions to make around sustainability.

No Need for Batteries
The expensive part of installing solar is the batteries. The storage of the electricity in lithium ion batteries is often the stumbling block of affordability with solar installations. South African schools have plenty of sunny roof space for solar panels and operate primarily during the day when the sun is at it’s peak, and thus don’t need to store excessive amounts of electricity for non-sunny hours during the night.

Keep the Lights on During Loadshedding
We all know the frustrations of loadshedding. 🙄
Don’t let important exams, tests and presentations get disrupted by the loadshedding schedule. Keep your students and teachers on track during power outages. Take back the power! (See what we did there? 😉)

We love to talk about solar power!

So if you are dabbling with the idea of introducing solar into your school, please get in contact!
We are happy to discuss what solar options are available to you and what would be the best fit for your school and your budget.
