Powering Businesses and Homes beyond the Grid: 3 Benefits of Industrial Solar Energy

Eskom has been the subject of much criticism over the past several years, costing the country tens of millions a day in lost productivity. From accusations of corruption to the mismanagement of funds and illegal tenders, Eskom is struggling under the demand for energy that is expected of it. This results in neglected power plants, inflated energy costs, and rolling blackouts.

An Hour of Sun Energy Can Power Earth for a Day

As Eskom continues to buckle, many South Africans would do well to take advantage of the African sun and wind. South Africa draws an extensive amount of wind and sun energy year-round. The energy the sun provides to the Earth, for just one hour each day, could meet our energy needs for one year. Yet, South Africa is burning coal to keep the lights on. While it is clear that we will not see the end of coal power soon, businesses, farms, schools, clinics, small dwellings, and large homes can make the change and achieve independence by installing industrial solar panels.

The Benefits of Industrial Systems

Solar power is the conversion of the sun’s energy into electricity. With about 173,000 terawatts of sun energy continuously hitting Earth’s surface, there is more than enough energy to meet the entire planet’s consumption levels every day of the week. If you’re looking at installing an industrial system, here’s how this incredible wind and sun energy technology can power your business, farm, and home.

  1. Combat Climate Change and Reduce Carbon Emissions: Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source, which means by turning the sunlight that hits the Earth into electricity, we will not deplete the sun’s energy. It’s limitless; As long as the sun is present, we cannot run out of solar energy. Notably safer than fossil fuel plants, industrial solar power plants do not produce air, water, noise pollution, or any greenhouse gas emissions. The only thing created is clean, free electricity.
  2. Be Independent and Beat Rising Eskom Tariffs:  Besides a steady supply of electricity, one of the greatest benefits of solar energy is it diminishes your monthly electricity bill, or it cuts out Eskom completely. While electricity prices continue to climb, solar costs are plummeting, making it a smart investment. This modern energy source now cheaper than ever, which means panels are now more accessible to South African businesses and homeowners. Once you have paid off your system, your panels will continue to generate free power for your home for the lifetime of the system.
  3. Access to Sustainable and Modern Energy: Solar energy can meet our electricity needs without compromising the energy needs of future generations. Since sunlight is free, your system will demand low operating costs, and once built, your panels will last up to 40 years. Enhancing the reliability of supply and reducing dependence on oil – which economists estimate to run out, the long-lasting financial benefits and additional rewards make renewable energy an outstanding choice for any business that wants to remain productive.

Renewable energy is here to stay and is fast replacing fossil fuel power plants around the world. The sun is a powerful energy source and harnessing this power by installing standard or industrial solar panels can protect your investment and keep the lights on at home. Solar technology can make a significant difference to the future of South Africa.

With benefits that range from unlimited free energy, low maintenance costs, Eskom independence, lessening your environmental footprint and improved property value to a brilliant ROI, installing either standard or industrial panels onto your property makes good financial sense.
