How can I save on electricity?
- Replace all light bulbs with energy-efficient or LED bulb
- Replace your electric hob with a gas hob.
- Install a gas geyser ( we can help you )
- Replace old appliances with new energy-efficient models.
- Install Solar ( our specialty )
What are the different types of Solar batteries?
Solar batteries are a critical component when installing a Hybrid solar system or an Off-Grid solar system. The Depth of Discharge (DoD) rate is of utmost importance as this will determine the lifecycle of the batteries and your financial outlay on installation and the maintenance costs as well.
There are three main types of battery technologies that pair with residential solar systems: Lead Acid batteries, Lithium-ion batteries, and Absorbed Glass Mats batteries.
Lead Acid batteries are the cheapest of the three but also have the lowest DoD rate. This could add to your cost by replacing the batteries more frequently and sooner than the Lithium-ion or AGM batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries, although still expensive, are becoming the most popular choice for residential solar batteries because they have a long lifespan and require no maintenance, and have a DoD rate of between 80% – 100%.
Absorbed Glass Mats batteries have a similar DoD rate to Lithium-ion namely 80%. The main difference between the two is that higher loads have a greater effect than on Lithium. An AGM battery will need to be twice the Ah rating of a Lithium one thereby potentially increasing the initial costs.
Is there different types of solar panels?
Yes there are tons of different solar panels that exist, most will fit into one of three types and each type has a distinct set of features that makes them better suited for certain solar projects:
- Monocrystalline solar panels are highly efficient and have a sleek design, but come at a higher price point, They are the most common for residential solar installations.
- Polycrystalline solar panels are cheaper than monocrystalline panels, however, they are less efficient and aren’t as aesthetically pleasing. Polycrystalline solar panels are popular for designing a solar system on a budget.
- Thin-film solar panels are the cheapest, but have the lowest efficiency rating and require a lot of space to meet your energy needs. Through an innovative technology, thin-film solar panels aren’t the best option for home solar.
