Renewable energy has come a long way in the last 20 years. Climate change is a hot topic, and going green is on everyone’s lips. Solar Power, was always looked at as an expensive substitute and quite ineffective. This fact is rapidly changing. With new advances in the field of PV (Photovoltaic) Solar panels, this option has become a truly viable and sustainable energy source. With current advances in technology, we can finally harness the sun’s energy and use it effectively.
Using the latest and most reputable products, we have a solution for any challenge. From ground mounted systems, to fully integrated solar systems on the roof. Our online meter will give all the necessary information and an energy profile of your business, in order for us to design and install bespoke solar systems that best suits your business’ needs.
Whether you want to go completely of the grid or use it as an alternative energy source, we can help. Solar photovoltaic funding is now available through a variety of channels. Accelerated depreciation of the capital is allowed, and several green funding mechanisms are available. Contact Power-Star for a custom-designed Solar PV solution and assistance with any funding mechanisms.
Generating solar energy goes far beyond just saving on energy costs. The indirect benefits are manifold.
- Pricing security
With ever-increasing tariffs, solar power can help in stabilising energy costs. With energy being generated, less energy is pulled from the grid which means lower utility bills.
- Security of Supply
Electricity generated is stored in batteries and used when required, ensuring that production will not be hampered.
- Investment benefits
The return on investment is substantial. After initial start up costs, upkeep and maintenance costs are quite low. Your local council might allow you to feed some of the generated energy back into the grid, which can be credited to your energy bill.

- Tax incentives & Government grants
Take advantage of the many incentives that are available when using solar energy for your site, that includes tax rebates. The French Development Agency has partnered with ABSA to give 7% rebate on loans of up to R100-million that are used to fund energy efficiency or renewable energy projects.
