What is Solar Photo voltaic and what can it do for me?
Solar System Installations in Mossel Bay
A Solar Photo voltaic system generates electricity by converting sunlight directly into electricity. This photo voltaic cell consists of one or two layers of semi conducting material, which is usually silicon. When sunlight shines on it, it creates an electric field causing electricity to flow. Omega Watt Energy and Solar Systems in Mossel Bay can assist you with all your solar and energy needs.
By installing a solar photo voltaic system you can save large numbers on your electricity.
The price of solar power has plummeted in recent years. Seven years ago a photovoltaic system cost R5 per kWh, compared to Eskom’s R0.50 per kWh. Today a photovoltaic system produces power at less than R1 per kWh, while Eskom charges much more than that. The wider availability and lower costs of photovoltaic systems means that many people are using solar energy to either supplement Eskom power (grid-tied system), or go completely off the grid.
What a solar photo voltaic system can do for a customer:
- Provide price security for customer
- Provide electricity supply security
- Provide additional supply in supply-constrained areas
- Promote changes in a customer’s load profile – adding options for other energy security
- Support ESKOM with room for maintenance by removing some of the demand on their systems
