Our Services include:
Solsure Annual Maintenance
Our customers have the option to take out Solsure, a service agreement with the Solartech Partner Network which entitles them to have the system maintained annually, to ensure system performance beyond warranty period. Each year, our team will:
Solsure entitles the client to hassle free solar system efficiency for the estimated lifetime of the unit (est. 20 years), and although our systems have been designed to require negligible maintenance, a mandatory annual check-up, whereby system coefficients like temperature, pressure, and flow are regulated, is highly recommended to ensure consistent performance.
Because it works - the sun does not send you an electricity bill!
Homeowners in Southern Africa face power shortages and fast-rising energy costs. At the same time, Southern Africa is ideally placed to harness some of the highest levels of direct normal irradiance in the world! This is an ideal environment for home solar power solutions because every Rand you spend on solar solutions is more productive than in most other parts of the world. By installing a Sol square Solar System you can reduce your energy costs drastically and therefore save money.
By doing so we put you in the driver seat of the electricity cost truck!
How do we generate reliable, affordable and carbon neutral, i.e. green electricity? This is one of the fundamental questions Africans will have to solve in our century.
As African home solar power pioneers, Solartech’s response has always been to focus on the sun. The African sun endows us with more energy than we could ever imagine using - energy that is clean and free, and cannot be exhausted at all!
We are excited that Africa is starting to embrace this and currently commences the migration from fossil fuels towards harmless and carbon neutral renewable energy.
Solartech - South Africa’s home solar power experts
We are committed to ensuring that solar power becomes the basis of our children’s power supply. To achieve this, we offer solar solutions for our discerning customers that take into account the varying energy needs found in Africa from pure cost-reduction to energy independence and home solar systems.
In Africa, solar power is already profitable and at the same time, makes a dedicated contribution towards the mitigation of climate change. You can produce your own electricity and no longer be stressed by Eskom’s electricity price hikes.
Going green is your responsibility! Getting you there is ours!
Total energy independence is within your reach with a Solartech solar power system, engineered to meet your energy needs during the day, and even during the night with our backup solutions.
No more price hikes, no more power failures, no more power surges...Solar power is the future for your home.
In Southern Africa, the most widely used solar hot water system is the Indirect Thermosyphon System. This system uses the heat exchanging fluid to heat up the water, rather than heating the water itself. Solartech has a variety of tried-and-tested solar water heating systems for your unique home requirements.
Heat Pump water heaters are twice as efficient as electric water heaters. They simply move heat rather than make heat, just like a refrigerator, but in reverse. By pulling heat from the surrounding air and transferring it at a higher temperature into the tank to heat your water, it is super energy efficient for both home geysers and swimming pool heating.
Solar pumps are a reliable and sustainable way to ensure water supply without relying on grid power. The advantage of solar pumps is that it is not dependent on a backup battery system to operate but instead achieves autonomy by means of water storage during daylight hours.
My Energy Profile
Our solar expert will monitor the amount of energy you use over a period of time, to establish the “energy profile” for your household. This enables us to take a closer look at your energy use patterns and suggest where efficiencies can be implemented, before designing a Solar Solution that suits your household’s needs. Sophisticated simulation software quantifies the exact performance of your system and the savings offered using weather data specific to your location so that you can make an informed choice when selecting your solar solution and solar provider.
Does it pay off?
With a Solartech Solar System, you are producing energy in the most eco-friendly way possible. Depending on the system choice your payback will be between 3 - 6 years. Solartech helps you understand the payback period of the recommended systems before you make a commitment - so that you can make an informed investment in solar energy.
