Residential Solar Power

Benefits of Residential Solar Power

  • Save money on energy. Pay off your solar system and get free energy. 
  • Non-polluting (air & water), renewable, quite solution for power generation.
  • These are solar power systems that can be installed at private houses both in towns and on farms (with or without grid connections)
  • Different system types available include; Off-grid, grid-tie or grid-interactive systems
  • Solar Panels can either be installed on a roof, car port or ground mount (open field) structures
  • Battery bank(s), MPPT Charge Controllers and inverters can be installed in a garage or battery room

How do residential solar power systems work

  • Grid-tied solar power system: Solar panels generate energy by exposure to sun light --> This energy gets converted from DC to 220/380 volt AC current and supplied to your local electrical network --> Power is used on the local network (self-consumption) and/or supplied power to the grid (stored/wheeled/banked/net-metering).
  • Off-Grid solar power system: Solar panels generate energy by exposure to sun light --> This energy is used by a MPPT Charge Controller to charge up a battery bank --> The battery bank stores the power for later use --> The inverter connects to the battery bank and converted DC battery power to 220/380 Volt AC current and supplied power to your local electrical network --> Power is used on the local network (self-consumption).
  • Grid-tie hybrid solar power system: Solar panels generate energy by exposure to sun light --> This energy is used by a MPPT Charge Controller to charge up a battery bank --> The battery bank stores the power for later use --> The inverter connects to the battery bank and converted DC battery power to 220/380 Volt AC current and supplies this power to your local electrical network --> Power is used on the local network (self-consumption) and/or supplied to the grid (stored/wheeled/banked/net-metering) --> Grid power (or a generator) is used as a backup to charge up a battery bank when the batteries start running low (in cases of higher consumption than usual or reduced charging from the solar panels than required).

What information we require to provide a quotation

  • The best option will be for one of our solar engineers to do a FREE site assesment. To book an appointment call us on +27(0)128071023 / 074 367 8545 / 074 561 7976 or email: orders@solarenergygroup.co.za / sales@solarenergygroup.co.za 
  • Site info: Location, available roof space/ground space, type of roof, roof facing (North, East & West), space available for MPPT(s), Inverter(s),Battery bank(s), etc
  • Present energy usage: Total monthly energy use (in Rands and/or kWh/units) (Eskom bills would be handy), peak use (maximum demand), base load use (constant usage), etc
  • Electrical Retucilation: single phase or 3 phase connection, DC board layout and space, grid connection, type of municipal/Eskom meter installed, etc
