Solar is the most abundant, best developed and reliable renewable energy available at the moment. The technology has been tested and proven. The feasibilities have been shown.
SEG has built up the proficiency, supplier relationships and on the ground capacity to deliver solutions.
We provide a number of Solar Energy solutions suited to your specific needs and requirements. We use our years of experience to recommend the best system type for you, but will also give you options so you can choose the one that suits your preferances best.
SEG does turn-key systems. Starting from site assesment, design, finance, product supply and installations.
The system types available includes:
Off-Grid Solar Systems
With these systems you don't need a grid connection
The whole system is self sustaining, the PV panels charge up the battery bank that stores the energy
The components will include: Solar PV Panels, MPPT Charge Controllers, Batteries and an Inverter(s)
Backup would be a larger battery bank, grid connection or gen set
This is ideal for off-grid homes, lodges, farms, holiday homes and locations where a grid connection would be expensive/unsightly to install
Grid-Tied Solar Systems
A grid-tied system interphases with the grid
Power can either be pushed back into the grid (net metering/Small Scale Embedded Generation) or in the case of a self consumption system, the day loads are fed by solar power
No batteries required, so inverters switch off when the grid goes off
The components will include: Solar PV Panels and an Inverter(s)
The grid-tied systems are best for reducing your energy bills in the most cost effective way
Grid-interactive (Hydbrid) Solar Systems
A grid-interactive solar system is a combination of an off-grid and a grid-tied solar system
A hybrid system can either be set to store power in batteries, service loads or push power back into the grid
A backup battery reserve will be available to run loads in case of power outages (even multi-day ones)
The components will include: Solar PV Panels, MPPT Charge Controllers, Batteries and an Hybrid Inverter(s)
These systems work well in town or on farms or anywhere where sustained power availability is important
Residential Solar Power
These are solar power systems installed at private houses both in towns and on farms
Off-grid, grid-tie or grid-interactive systems can be installed
Usually roof mounted solar panels with battery bank(s) and inverters installed in a garage or battery room
Commercial Solar Power
Commercial solar systems are installed at busineses, office blocks, shopping centres, large farms, etc
In general grid-tied solar systems are installed in these locations to minimise energy bills
A small battery bank can be installed to accomodate power outages or generator startup requirements.
Utility Scale (1MW+) Solar Farms
Utility scale solar systems push power back onto the local grid, municipal grid or National grid (Eskom grid)
The generated power is first used on the local grid, the rest of the power is wheeled to other users on the national grid.
