South Africa Has Some of the Best Solar Radiation

South Africa has some of the best solar radiation in the world.

Solar water heating systems, or 'solar thermal' systems, use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. After installing a Solar system, one can benefit from years of “free” water heating courtesy of the sun.

The payback period for a solar system now sits between 3-5 years, and many studies have shown that a RELIABLEsolar system ends up paying for itself 5 times over during its lifetime.
