We design, install and monitor home and small businesses solar power installations from:
From 5kw to 50kW+
Our solar solution PV (Photovoltaic*) Systems are available in several different design options. The three basic components of a solar solution system are:
- Battery and
- Solar Power.
Solar PV modules:
Solar PV modules convert sunlight into electricity. These PV modules are available in different sizes, efficiency and power ratings. Our panels are only from the highest quality rating manufacturers.
Inverters receive electricity from Solar PV modules and convert that electricity from DC (Direct Current) to AC (Alternating Current). Inverters differ on function and output. There are 4 basic types of inverters this will determine the type of system you choose: Hybrid, Grid-Tied, Bi-Directional and Off-Grid.
A set of batteries stores electricity for use at a later stage, either during a power outage, or when the power produced by the solar solution is not sufficient at that specific time.
Batteries are available in many different options based on capacity, lifespan, efficiency, durability & especially cost.
Typical batteries used in solar are typically deep cycle applications that are:

Here is a basic scenario of power consumption and using solar power.
Typical power usage peaks in the morning & evening and solar power generation peaks in the middle of the day.
This could result in a mismatch between solar power generation and power usage. If the Solar generation is less than the consumption, all the Solar Power will be used immediately. If the power generation from the solar is more than usage, batteries are used to store solar power during the day and use that stored power during the night.
Depending on the size of the solar system compared to consumption, selecting the correct system for you:
- Do you want solar with battery back-up: Hybrid
- Do you want solar power during day and night: Hybrid
- Can you feed power back into the Grid (use the grid as a battery): Grid-Tied
- Do you only want Solar Power during the day: small Grid-Tied
- Is the majority of your consumption during the day: small Grid Tied OR Hybrid
*PV: Photovoltaic essentially means electricity from the energy of the sun and is derived from the words “photo” with the Greek meaning light and “voltaic” meaning voltage.

WHY CHOOSE US?
Hybrid systems are the standard solar systems that use solar to charge a set of batteries and supply power to the home, with Eskom as tertiary power supply.
This solution is ideal when electricity savings in conjunction with battery back-up to ensure a steady power supply, even during a power outage
Hybrid systems consist of the following components:
- Solar modules that collect sunlight and converts it to DC power
- Inverter (with built-in charge controller and regulator) which:
- receives DC power from Solar modules
- receives AC power from Eskom
- charges batteries with either Solar power or Eskom power (based on programming)
- discharges batteries and converts it into AC power for supply to the building.
- Lithium Ion batteries which are managed by the inverter to be correctly charged by Solar or Eskom & discharged to supply power to the building
The Hybrid system is connected to specific circuits as wired in the DB, e.g. Lights, dedicated plug points, etc. All power supply (load) to these connected circuits flows through the Hybrid inverter, irrespective if the power is supplied by Solar, Batteries or Eskom.
The Hybrid inverter needs to be sized correctly to accommodate the required load. Hybrid systems are suitable for small to medium domestic, and very smallcommercial applications.
Hybrid inverters are available in different sizes. Multiple Hybrid Inverters can be interconnected to increase the load capacity of the system.
