Reduce your electricity bill with a solar geyser

ESKOM URGES SOUTH AFRICANS TO USE ELECTRICITY SPARINGLY AS COAL CRISIS LOOMS: 17 Sept 2018

JOHANNESBURG – Eskom has called on South Africans to use electricity sparingly as 10 of its power stations are running low on coal.

The utility has confirmed the power stations have less than three weeks of supply left and some even have less than 10 days in their reserves.

Spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe says: “We don’t want to mislead people and create unnecessary panic. At the time, we also don’t want to create a sense of comfort. All we can say is that the risk of load shedding is always there, but we’re managing it.”

Help Eskom and switch your geyser to solar

An electrical geyser can contribute between 40% and 60% towards your monthly electricity bill, depending on your household’s hot water consumption. We at Solar Juice can retrofit your existing electrical geyser with solar and enable you to help lower the pressure on Eskom’s coal crisis.  Many households use only the sun to heat their geyser water from October to March (depending on the weather).

Converting your electrical geyser to solar is definitely contributing towards lowering our country’s carbon footprint one solar geyser at a time and it releases the pressure on the much needed coal resources during this time of crisis.

Solar Juice would love to help you make the best of the sun’s amazing energy.  Our service delivery area: Western Cape (Helderberg, Boland, Cape Town, Overberg, Winelands, Breede Valley, Swartland).

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.

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!!

Solar water heating at Tre Donne Estate (near Somerset West / Sir Lowry’s Pass Village)

A second opportunity!!

A big THANK YOU to our dedicated clients of the past 6 years and new future clients. It is so great when your clients call on you to be of service for a second or third time.

Today’s repeat service: We are installing a solar geyser system near Somerset-West (Tre-donne Estate) for a client who made use of our services first in 2012.

Extract from our client’s previous email: “Dear Leon, You installed a solar geyser at our home in July 2012 and your service was great!! We are now ready to get a quote and discuss the details of a new system for my mum’s house that we are building on the same property”.

Water heating system design: What and how?

The system design depends on:

  • the requirements of the client (hot water consumption, whether the geyser must be outside on the roof or inside the roof, etc) and on
  • the structure of the building (whether the geyser can be located higher than the panels; if there is enough roof space, etc.).
  • Some clients prefer a heat pump while others prefer a solar water heater. 

In this instance, the geyser is located higher (inside the roof), than the panels (outside on the roof). This enables a natural water flow and does not require with a pump.
