What are the effects of power outages on your small business or home office?
What are the effects of power outages on your household?
Up to now, we were all forced to use power for a central electricity grid, as there were no alternatives. But this has several disadvantages….
Some turn to generators for backup power solutions. This can work as a short term solution, but a generator has several disadvantages…
The better alternative way is Renewable energy combined with local energy storage with or without grid backup. Also, know as a Hybrid solar system.
The perfect backup power and solar power solution for your home, home office or small business… Advantages of a hybrid solar system over grid and generators are:
A hybrid solar system is basically just a backup system with solar power added. So, one can start off with just a backup system, then add solar panels at a later stage.
|Name||Inverter Size||Battery Size||Cost Estimate (Incl VAT)|
|Extra Small||3 kVA||5 kWh||R 94 500.00|
|Small||5 kVA||5 kWh||R 104 500.00|
|Medium||8 kVA||10 kWh||R 131 000.00|
|Large||10 kVA||15 kWh||R 204 000.00|
|Extra Large||15 kVA||20 kWh||R 262 000.00|
The amount of solar is dependent of the following factors.
One of our qualified solar consultants will be able to advise you on the correct amount for your situation. This table is just to give an indication of costs.
|Size||Number of 330 W panels||Yearly energy||Average monthly energy||Average daily energy||Cost|
|1 kWp||3||1 700 kWh||142 kWh||5 kWh||R 21 700.00|
|2 kWp||6||3 400 kWh||283 kWh||9 kWh||R 31 300.00|
|3 kWp||9||5 100 kWh||425 kWh||14 kWh||R 45 000.00|
|4 kWp||12||6 800 kWh||567 kWh||19 kWh||R 46 250.00|
|5 kWp||15||8 500 kWh||708 kWh||23 kWh||R 71 200.00|
|6 kWp||18||10 200 kWh||992 kWh||28 kWh||R 82 400.00|
|7 kWp||21||11 900 kWh||850 kWh||33 kWh||R 108 000.00|
|8 kWp||24||13 600 kWh||1 133 kWh||37 kWh||R 125 700.00|
The total system cost can be calculated by adding the cost of the backup system plus the cost of the amount of solar you would like to add.
