- South African electricity utility companies have stated that load shedding is projected to be worse than it has ever been moving into 20241.
- The government is offering eligible homeowners a rebate to the value of 25% of the cost of new and unused solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, up to a maximum of R15 000 per individual2.
- The scheme is ending in February 2024, so South African homeowners are taking action before it’s too late!
Many South Africans don’t realise that they could be saving money on their energy bills with solar panels and avoid energy blackouts
South Africa’s abundant sunshine makes it one of the most ideal locations for Solar energy, too. With the cost of electricity rising and concerns about climate change growing, Solar Panels offer the best opportunity for energy independence.
Solar: The Future of Cheap Energy
Because of the load shedding crisis, South Africa imported five times as many solar batteries in 2023 as it did in 2022.
Likewise, the South African government is actively encouraging the increase in solar panel usage across the country alongside its generous rebate scheme, helping you save money on your solar panel installation.
As a result, rooftop solar capacity has increased by 349% in a little over a year in South Africa3.
