Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Commercial Solar Systems
Commercial solar systems have many benefits for businesses in South Africa. The primary reasons are to provide power during loadshedding to ensure your business can operate, reducing your electricity bill, and reducing your spend on diesel and maintenance of generators. It is also becoming increasingly important for businesses to reduce their carbon footprint to show consumers their commitment to the environment and to maintain access to key international markets.
Sizing of a commercial system depends on many factors, including what it is you need powered, and for how long. Reputable installers will need to do an energy measuring exercise to confirm exact usage before they can accurately size your system.
This very much depends on the size of the system and if there is already an available and suitable space for the system and panels. For smaller systems below 100kW, this typically takes 2-3 weeks, while larger systems will take more time. Some municipalities require solar systems to be registered on their system which may increase the time needed.
SARS (South African Revenue Service) announced an expanded incentive for businesses in the 2023 budget speech. Eligible businesses will be able to claim a 125% deduction of the cost of renewable energy assets used for electricity generation. This amount can be fully deducted within the first year. It is unfortunately only valid for 2 years, from 1 March 2023 to 28 February 2023.
Payback periods depend on several factors, including your electricity consumption profile, the size of the system you install, and how much you currently spend on electricity (both electricity and diesel generators). We’ve seen typical payback periods range from as little as 2 years to 6 or 7 years once the SARS rebate is factored in.
Maintenance for commercial solar systems is typically less than for an equivalent gas, coal, or diesel generator as there are virtually no moving parts. Regular inspections are required to ensure that there are no loose connections or build up of dirt, and it is advisable to clean the panels regularly to maximize their efficiency.
