We offer complete grid-independent solutions for properties that require power 24/7, Solar PV offers true energy security, improves your carbon footprint, pegs the levelised cost of electricity and is scalable for expanding energy requirements. This example of Clearline panels by Viridian demonstrate the aesthetics that we achieve with Solar roof integration.
Using high quality trades people The Green Way Solar is able to install almost all solar modules “In Roof” allowing the array to become an integrated part of your home.
Solar PV is ideal for applications where the bulk of the electricity requirement is while the sun is shining! Commercial and industrial applications offer incredible cost savings as well peace of mind given that energy can be supplied when the grid fails to deliver. We design the most efficient solution for your business with the shortest possible pay back periods, we factor in all variables including how to integrate the grid where necessary.
Our solutions are built on pure economics and business case - a thorough assessment and energy profile is carried out in the design phase. We specify the optimal system and leave space for scalablity.
Battery chemistries and the technology is more dynamic than ever before. The advent of electric cars is driving costs down and in so doing bringing the storage of renewable energy with in reach of consumers. Batteries pair naturally with solar systems, which generate electricity during the day that is then be stored in a battery and used when the sun is not shining.
In South Africa storing your electricity is essential for “rainy days”, load shedding and the inevitable and increasing unscheduled outages.
The Green Way Solar have sourced and tested cost effective battery storage solutions that are preferable to diesel generators in almost every respect. Affordable storage solutions and improving government policy with regard to grid tied systems is making Solar PV and batteries the most attractive option in the quest for energy security.
• Battery Storage allows your family to use your home grown energy supply even while they sleep. This can increase your own
consumption to in excess of 80% of the generated energy
• Immersion Controllers are a cost effective energy storage solution that uses excess energy to heat your hot water and can be
used as a sole storage solution or in conjunction with a battery storage solution
• Power Controllers detect excess energy and allow your chosen devises to be automatically turned on when your solar array is
exporting enough energy to directly power them
• LED Lamps can reduce your lighting costs and energy use by up to 90% when compared with halogen bulbs
Battery Storage - self use Graph
Avoid wasting energy – timers switches can be used to turn outdoor and indoor lights on and off at specific times. The best combination for aesthetic lighting may be a photosensor that turns lights on in the evening and a timer that turns the lights off at a certain hour of the night (such as 11 p.m.).
Motion or occupancy sensor switches in bathrooms and utility rooms provide light only when you need it. Photosensors prevent outdoor lights from operating during daylight hours.
Make forgetting to turn lights off a thing of the past with intelligent and energy efficient light switch technology, dimmer switches also result in less energy consumption, the best way to really save on electricity is to use less.
The Green Way Academy is there to help you understand the terminology and basics of solar integration. Education is key to a sustainable future for our children and grandchildren. The investments we make now will be critical determinants of future living standards. The Green Way Academy is here to provide information and education to schools, clubs, associations and special interest groups. Energy sustainability is everyone’s responsibility.
