What are Solar Energy Systems?
Image is not available

Solar Home Systems (SHS) are small to mid-size systems using photovoltaic solar energy and battery storage to provide electricity where there is no access to the grid. Solar energy is harnessed through photovoltaic panels installed nearby the house or building and is connected to a battery bank. During night hours, the battery bank supplies the electricity to specific appliances. Such systems are individually sized to suit the end users’ needs and can be used for households, offices or business entities that are scattered throughout different areas or entire villages.

How does Solar Work?

A Solar Home System consists of the following components:

Solar panels that deliver electricity from the sun. A battery set that stores the electricity produced by the solar panel and can deliver it at any time of the day. A charge controller that protects the battery from overcharging

During night hours, the battery bank supplies the electricity to specific appliances. Such systems are individually sized to suit the end users’ needs and can be used for households, offices or business entities that are scattered throughout different areas or entire villages.

Solar Energy Systems have various applications, such as in household application to power lights and electrical appliances. They can also be used to power health stations located in villages, schools, small businesses, etc.

Why Go Solar??

Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or non-profit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.

Protection against load-shedding/power outages

Solar Energy Solutions are the best way to protect yourself against load-shedding and power outages, South Africa is currently being faced by huge load shedding schedules that may affect you or your business one way or the other, having a solar solution helps prevent that, it also gives you the option to go 100% off-grid or during load-shedding hours to make sure your lights are kept on.

Protect against rising energy costs

One of the most clear-cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of 15% percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you’re a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.

Our Services

Solar Energy Systems

We diagnose and repair all problems related to your solar energy system, thereafter, monitor the system daily to make sure it is fully operational proving you with warrantied and 24/hr repair services.

Solar Geyser Conversions

Converting your existing geyser into a solar geyser and save up to 30% your electrical costs. At Silicon Energy we do Solar Geyser conversions using solar panels which have been proven to be 30% more efficient than traditional solar geyser systems( tubes or plate system).

Maintenance Services

We offer maintenance services to maximize performance and efficiency of your system ensuring that your system performs 100%, this can also extent to adjusting tiled angles etc to make sure your system generates maximum energy all year round.

Rebuilds

We can rebuild systems that have been damaged due to whether, intended damage etc, salvaging the parts that still work overhaul them and reinstall them to save you cost but renew the system to original projected performance.

Solar energy system-based solutions bring security and independence to your home and business.

Silicon Energy Technology provides quality-driven Consultations, Design and Installation of residential, commercial and industrial Solar Systems. We provide a wide range of brands in solar panelsinverters and batteries.

Off-Grid Systems

An off-grid solar system is not connected to the electricity grid and requires battery storage. Off-grid solar systems must be designed correctly in order to generate enough power throughout the year and have the necessary battery capacity to meet the installed locations electrical energy requirements or demand.

Hybrid Systems

Hybrid solar systems generate power in the same way as a common grid-tie solar system but use special hybrid inverters and batteries to store energy for later use. This ability to store energy enables most hybrid systems to also operate as a backup power supply during a blackout, like a UPS system.

Hybrid systems are the most applied solar energy solutions, they are more practical and  provide you the best of both worlds (Grid Energy as main and Solar as back-up or Solar Energy as main electricity provider and the Grid Energy (Eskom) as back-up. They can protect you from regular load-shedding and are far less expensive than Off-Grid Applications.

Grid Tie Systems

A grid-tied electrical system, also called tied to grid or grid tie system, is a semi-autonomous electrical generation or grid energy storage system which links to the mains to feed excess capacity back to the local mains electrical grid. When insufficient electricity is available, electricity drawn from the mains grid can make up the shortfall. Conversely when excess electricity is available, it is sent to the mains grid. When the Utility or network operator restricts the amount of energy that goes into the grid, it is possible to prevent any input into the grid by installing Limiting device

 

Silicon Energy Technology has a team of qualified engineers and technicians that are able to build deliver quality tailored solutions are per your energy requirements ensuring that you get the best out of your investment in solar, whether is an off-grid, hybrid or off-grid solution, we aim to prove the best system solutions to meet your expectations.
