Start a Seamless Transition to Solar withThe Right Solutions Provider
One way to go solar is to first choose your product from a supplier, then arrange its setup with another supplier who does installations only. We’d recommend you could choose an end-to-end solution that offers you quality and reliability – from your very first question, through expert solution planning and design, all the way to reaping the benefits of an optimal renewable energy solution.
At Solec South Africa, we designs and install high quality solar projects with our own in-house team headed by a dedicated foreman who has the appropriate training, experience and qualifications. Whether you’re interested in solar for residential or commercial, we provide a turnkey renewable energy solution, start to finish.
Which Solar Power Solution Should You Choose?
Battery Back-Up Solution
A battery solution is ideal for family homes and small businesses that need battery back-up power when Eskom is down. Unlike generators, this solution is quiet and convenient to use, and environmentally friendly. A battery Solution will automatically operate during load shedding or in the event of an unexpected power outage.
A Solar Only Solution
Best for properties in which most electricity is consumed during the day, a solar only solution includes a solar panel array with an inverter. This is a great way to reduce your electricity bill and optimise energy efficiency because power generated by the panels means you are not using electricity from the electrical grid so long as the solar panels are exposed to the sun.
A Hybrid Solar Solution
If you want to be completely energy independent and energy efficient, and invest in your future and that of the next generation by going green, then a hybrid solar solution is right for you. The solution is a collection of components – solar panels, a charge controller, an inverter and a battery – that allow you to run a Solar Power System for your home or business.
We use Alpha ESS advanced battery storage products and intelligent energy management solutions for both our residential and commercial customers. This globally renowned range of products includes user-friendly Alpha Cloud monitoring software to help you maximise your energy savings. This makes the running of your solar power system worry-free – you benefit from safe operation with built-in system protection mechanisms, quick response to any problems with remote diagnostics as well as local technical support from Alpha engineers.

Customising a Solar Package That Works For You
We’re constantly excited by the innovation and premium technology on offer in the renewable energy space so we know there’s no need to squeeze your unique needs into one solution. We offer our customers the freedom to customise their own solution with our solar packages. What does this mean for you?
You may already be aware of the substantial financial and environmental benefits of going solar. Even so, this can be an expensive investment that calls for a large payment of cash up front. But there are various financing options when installing a solar power system:
- Pay cash if you have the available capital,
- Access a loan to buy the system, or
- Rent the system from the owner – this includes a rent-to-own option.
Owning your solar power system produces the highest savings in the long run but renting a solar power system is ideal if you can’t manage the upfront costs of a cash payment, don’t qualify for a loan or don’t qualify for any tax incentives.
