Why Go Solar?

Solar power systems are an investment. According to financial experts, the costs and benefits and returns of solar power rival the more traditional forms of investment like stocks. Due to the electric bill savings, the average homeowner pays off their system within 4 to 5 years and can easily receive a return on investment of 30% or more over the lifespan of the system. A solar energy system could reduce your electricity bill by up to 25% depending on your area. Here at Milec Solar we have core expertise in solar power system design, installation and maintenance. Primarily focusing on grid-tied…

Understanding Section 12B Allowance

Everyone talks about the ‘section 12b allowance’ but we noticed not a lot of people are aware of this fact or know what it is. South Africa is a country that flourishes with perfect year round weather conditions for PV Solar systems. The South African government has given the opportunity for companies to take advantage of this fact and opened the door for us to become world leaders in Renewable Energy systems and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. How would you ask? They have amended Section 12B of the Income Tax Act No. 58 of 1962 to include Photovoltaic and other renewable sources. Section…

Solar Power is Fastest-growing Source of New Energy

In any discussion about climate change, renewable energy usually tops the list of changes the world can implement to stave off the worst effects of rising temperatures. That's because renewable energy sources such as solar and wind don't emit carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. Global warming is one symptom of climate change, the term scientists now prefer to describe the complex shifts affecting our planet’s weather and climate systems. Most forms of renewable energy are seeing solid growth around the globe, according to the new report. When a new energy…

Hybrid Solar Systems

With the ever-increasing demand of electricity both domestic and commercial in South Africa, Eskom has taken a strain. Load shedding has become a household term. The future of electricity generation in South Africa lies in producing your own solar energy during the day and storing it in a battery bank to be used at night. With the growth in the number of solar power storage solution technologies available in South Africa. Each one functions in a slightly different way, but the basic principle is the same. A hybrid solar system is generally comprised of a battery bank (utilizing a technology such…

Understanding Off-grid and Grid-tie Solar PV systems

Electricity demand for individual flats, townhouses and houses are likely to continue to increase because of the ever-increasing population in the country. We have seen over the years Eskom not being able to supply this demand. Solar and wind power may not be the total answer but can do a lot towards reducing the cost of electricity and being a source of power when Eskom is not delivering power.  While wind power only has the advantage of being available when wind is available and is more suitable to coastal areas where wind is more generally available;  Solar is suitable for the entire country,…
