Imminent cost increases and long term solutions

An investment in solar can be substantial, and one of the costly components is the batteries. However, the long term ROI is worth the sacrifice. “Consumers increasingly want to become self-sufficient, and the imminent cost increases coming from Eskom are a key driver,” according to Teresa Kok, director of the One Energy Group.

“It makes absolutely no financial sense to keep paying for a resource like electricity that you can, in fact, generate for yourself with an asset that adds tremendous value to your property, hedges your costs for the next 20 to 25 years and will save you a massive amount of money over the cumulative lifespan of your solar investment”, says Kok.

So, how do you protect and prolong the life of one of the most expensive parts of your assets?

An intelligent solar controller is the answer to prolonging the life of your solar battery. Each time you charge deep cycle batteries with solar panels, it is necessary to use a charge controller in the circuit to protect the battery from overcharging or from over discharging. Solar controllers protect batteries from the dangers of being overcharged and completely discharged, both of which significantly reduce battery lifespan.

Professional installers use our range of high quality intelligent solar controller. Solar controllers, also known as solar charge regulators, monitor the condition of your battery according to the power generated by solar panels and charge the battery according to the battery specification. A solar controller will determine when to disconnect or reconnect your battery from its power source. The digital screens will keep you informed of the charge status of your battery.
