4 Feb 2015: Solar geyser rebate has been extended!!

DoE extended the rebate – Media release, dated 4 Feb 2015

Eskom notified the SWH (solar water heating) industry on 7 January 2015 that their rebate comes to an end on 31 January 2015 and would be handed over to the Department of Energy (DoE).

The DoE notified the SWH (solar water heating) industry via their media release, dated 4 Feb 2015, that the rebate is now extended by the Department of Energy (DoE) for another 5000 systems to be installed in South Africa with the same rebate amount per system as with the Eskom rebate programme. DoE will provide more information about their future rebate programme soon. 

Extract from the DoE letter:
“With effect from 2 February 2015 the Department has availed subsidies (up to a cap of 5,000) buy sildenafil citrate 100mg. The number of subsidies is informed by past performance of the partial rebate programme under Eskom (about 2,000 monthly installations over the past nine months). No further subsidies will be available under this programme once this cap is exceeded.
1.2 The latest Eskom rebate levels, together with the payment services offered by Eskom (through Deloitte), will remain unchanged subject to (1.1) above”.

A new rebate s200-liter-geyser-retrofit-to-solar-at-Stellenboschcheme will be introduced by DoE soon:

Extract from the media release:

Going forward a new rebate scheme will be introduced and subsidies will be offered with considerations regarding local content.

Lithos Wine Farm showing the way with solar water heating!!

Location: Somerset West – Old Sir Lowry’s Pass Village Road – Wedderville Country Estate

We like to share our experiences when installing solar for other businesses and also to share information about the service provided by these businesses. The mutual interest is caring for the environment and taking the necessary steps towards a lighter carbon footprint. Today, we share information about Lithos Wine Farm. ‪#‎Solargeyserinstallation‬

You start being impressed with Lithos Wine Farm by first visiting their website (their story, their theme, their soil preparation, …) at www.lithos.co.za.  The second impressive part is driving towards this wine farm which offers you amazing views of the mountains, trees, fynbos vegetation and the sea. The third and most impressive part is their hospitality, award winning wines and amazing environment.  Be warned you won’t be able to resist acquiring some of their divine award winning wines after the cellar tour and wine tasting.

I first visited Lithos Wine Farm during last year’s Helderberg wine festival and was so impressed with their hospitality, beautiful views and their award winning wines.  I simply had to purchase some of their wine and we keep it for special occasions – and life really offers so many special occasions!!

Lithos_Solar geyser Somerset West 2

You will notice the solar water heating panels on the roof which we installed for them during October 2014.  The solar geysers are hidden inside the roof and the benefit of solar geysers is that they are well insulated against temperature loss.  Both of these installed systems qualify for the Eskom rebate.

 These solar accessories on roofs are excellent indications of a home owner’s commitment towards using more environmentally friendly ways to heat their geyser water. Most of South Africa’s electricity is produced by burning coal, which has a major environmental and health impact.

Kindly contact Lithos Wine Farm at Tel: 021 858 1851 or info@lithos.co.za to book a wine tasting, so that they know to expect you.  Wine tasting can be arranged during the week from 9am to 4pm sildenafil 100mg price.

Today, we share information about Fred’s tree services.

Fred Lewis (also known as Dr Tree) is no stranger to heights and shows his satisfaction after inspecting his newly installed solar water heating system with the Helderberg Mountain forming a beautiful background.

About Fred and Fred’s Tree Services:

Fred is well-known for his compassion and work with trees under his company name:  Fred’s Tree Services.  They specialise in the pruning, felling and chipping of trees.  Fred is a member of the International Society of Arboriculture and boasts with German qualifications.

Fred has registered various trees as national monuments in order to save the beautiful trees from being cut down.  That is a brilliant showcase of his commitment towards the environment and also with this step to move from a coal-based water heating solution to a solar based heating solution.

This solar water heating system is a natural flow (thermo siphon) system, where the geyser is located higher than the panel.  The investment in a solar water heater (geyser) system is one of the best investments, since you save considerably on your monthly electricity bill and it reduces pollution.  Electricity load shedding won’t bother Fred after a long day at work, he will be able to relax with a hot shower.

Solar Juice installs at Eskom Sere Wind Farm

We (Solar Juice) had the privilege to install 2 solar water heating systems on the building at Sere Wind farm, outside Koekenaap (near Vredendal) which is about 350km from Cape Town. (The Sere Wind Farm is Eksom’s first large-scale renewable energy project and this is the first major step in a drive to reduce SA’s heavy reliance on coal to generate electricity). 

This was quite an exciting project to be involved in.  The work safety measures are very strict and well communicated beforehand. It is great to see that the first 7 of the total 46 wind turbines came into action on 10 Oct. 2014. These 7 turbine generators produces close to 16MW power.  This is enough to light up about 30,000 households. An excellent start for this project.

Eskom lowers its carbon footprint with this project:

The 2 Solar Geyser systems will help Eskom by storing the sun’s energy in the geyser water (heat) for utilisation when required.  A 200 liter electrical geyser would have resulted in the burning of at least a 1000kg of coal annually to generate electricity and would have resulted in 4.5 tonnes of harmful CO2 and other gasses to be released into the air every year.  This way, and especially with the wind turbines, Eskom is lowering their carbon footprint in this amazing new project.

Sere Wind farm connects to national grid in South Africa

Posted by: ESI Africa October 17, 2014

The construction of the Sere wind farm reached new heights this week with the energising of the transformers of the first string of seven wind turbine generators, a move that paved the way for Eskom to commence with the final commissioning of these turbines.

“I am sure that the team will continue with the same drive and commitment until all 46 wind turbines are in operation,” said Eskom Chief Executive Officer, Tshediso Matona, chief executive officer of Eskom, South Africa’s utility.

Sere wind farm is Eskom’s first large-scale renewable energy project, and forms part of the utility’s commitment to renewable energy and reducing its carbon footprint.

Eskom’s senior general manager for renewables, Ayanda Nakedi, said: “Last Friday (10th October 2014) we synchronised the first seven wind turbines to the national grid, adding 4.4MW as part of the final testing and commissioning process. The achievement of this milestone is in line with our target date of December 2014 and we remain on track to be in full commercial operation by end March 2015”.

Once completed, the plant will add 100MW to the national grid and contribute to saving nearly 6-million tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the 20 years expected operating life, with average annual energy production of about 298 000MWh, enough to supply about 124 000 standard homes.

“Wind conditions have been favourable, and this past Monday, the Sere wind farm was contributing 15.7MW to the national grid,” said Nakedi

The R2.5-billion wind farm will also help diversify Eskom’s energy mix and contribute to South Africa’s objective of meeting 42% of the country’s power demand with renewable energy sources by 2030.

Matona expressed his appreciation for the work and progress achieved, “My thanks go out to the entire team for enabling us to reach this most significant of milestones. This milestone has been achieved through close co-ordination between various departments in Eskom and our contractors. This is evidence of what we can achieve as an organisation when we work together.”

Describing Sere Wind Farm

Sere Wind Farm is Eskom’s first full scale renewable energy project, situated on the Western Cape Province of South Africa, located north-west of Vredendal, approximately 350 km north of Cape Town. It sits on a 3 700 hectare plot of land in Skaapvlei near the town of Koekenaap Eskom’s Sere Wind Farm will comprise 46 Siemens 2.3-108 wind turbine generators. The project includes construction of a new substation and 44 km of 132 kV distribution line linking the new Skaapvlei substation to the existing Juno substation.

A myth? Saving with solar water heating or heat pump

A myth? Saving with solar water heating or heat pump

Air polution vs clean energy solutions

It is believed that the earth receives more energy each hour from the sun than the world can use in a full year. In spite of this, South Africa generates 77% or more of our electricity by burning millions of tonnes of coal each year …. imagine the pollution effect on our natural resources: air, water, soil and ……the resultant health effect!!
