The cost of the solar system was: R86 000.00

Taking a 8% increase of electricity cost over the next 5 years into account, the system will pay for itself within 6 years!

Given a 5% annual increase per year over the next 25 years, the eventual return on investment would be almost R 1.3 million rands!

Investing in solar, is a really good investment!
