About Solar

1. What is Solar Power?

Sunlight is a renewable energy source. Solar panels convert sunlight into usable energy. Solar thermal panels use sunlight to heat water for washing and heating, while solar photovoltaic (PV) panels convert sunlight into electricity.
Zimbabwe climate is very much suited for the establishment of solar electricity generation systems both at household and corporate level. This is because there is abundant sunshine all year round in Zimbabwe. Solar systems are now being used to power Harare’s traffic lights and most recently to light up some major roads in the city.
In Zimbabwe PV panels are becoming a very cost-effective way to generate electricity. The cost of PVs is also coming down, which is helping the adoption of solar as an alternative energy source.
The adoption of solar energy is increasing and the government of Zimbabwe is pushing for the adoption of solar geysers in order to save 300MW worth of power. 
This article summarises the types of solar systems available out there and what you should look out for when purchasing a solar system.

 

2. How does a Solar System work?

Solar Panels are designed to turn energy from the sun into useful energy that can be used as electricity in our homes and businesses. 

3. How long do solar panels last?

All solar  panels are guaranteed to be producing power in 25-years, and most installers will offer a 10-25 warranty on workmanship and a power production guarantee. A PV system is made up of different components. These include PV modules (groups of PV cells), which are commonly called PV panels, or in Zimbabwe solar panels.

4. What’s the maintenance cost of solar?

With Solar there virtually no maintenance costs because there are  no moving parts. this does not mean that the system should not be checked. To ensure that you are getting the most out of your installation there is need to ensure that the panels are collecting the amount of energy they should be and that it is converted efficiently. 

5. How much does a solar electric system cost?

The cost of solar system is varies, depending mainly on the  size of the system and your location.  To find out what a how much a solar system will cost, get your FREE SOLAR QUOTE  now.

6. How much can solar save me?

The amount of money saves you depends on your usage patterns. Typically, your electricity bill can drop by bewteen it’s 40-60%  than what you’re paying to ZESA. More importantly installing a solar system means you will also stop using your generator. Solar means you dont have to worry about power cuts.  

7. Does a solar system work during cloudy days

A solar system works on cloudy days but not at its maximum capacity. This means that in low light conditions the solar panels convert light into power for your home, just at a reduced rate. For example a 2kW system may only be outputting 1kW of power on during a cloudy day.
At some point  the energy produced during low light conditions is no longer strong enough to power the inverter and the system will turn off.  If you have a hybrid solar system that is also connected to the ZESA National grid, batteries will also be charged via the national grid.
