Top Benefits of Installing Solar Panels at Home

So why install solar panels at home?

There are some well-known and less considered benefits to home solar panels (PV) installations. Here we examine the top known benefits of installing solar panels at home.

Cost Savings

The primary reason solar panels are purchased is the significant monthly savings felt by the pocket and the huge savings across the long periods for which PV output is guaranteed. While daily generation is modest, monthly generation can easily displace most or all your household electrical bill. The saving over a few years pays for the system – once paid for, the savings make handsome amounts of money that you can use on discretionary expenses.

Independence

Buying a solar (Hybrid) power system costs a lot of money, but this spend is an investment in your personal independence. You can carry on since Eskom infrastructure blackouts, or other power interruptions do not affect you at all . The ability to produce your own power, cost-effectively, puts a smile on your face the first time the system carries your family through a cable theft incident! 

“Buying a solar (Hybrid) power system costs a lot of money, but this spend is an investment in your personal independence.”

Backup Support

Solar panels combined with battery backup systems (power security) are incredibly powerful. Any battery has a finite capacity to support a home electrical load. Adding PV provides the cost savings discussed above and the ability to charge batteries and support the home when Eskom is not available – thus extending power security duration.

Lifestyle

Not only will you have free cash every month to do with what you choose, but your spirit isn’t dampened by power outages, whether scheduled or not. When entertaining friends, watching your favourite programme or game or getting the kids to study, you continue regardless. As indicated above, combined with a sound battery backup system, PV will help maintain your lifestyle and give you the choice of when to use Eskom.

Everything about Greenhouse Solar is amazing. The initial consultation, design of the system (set up for scaling up in the future), and after sales service is exceptional. The 24/7 helpline is handy to have for troubleshooting, although, due to the high-end components used (Victron, FreedomWon, JA panels), issues have been non-existent since I had the system been installed. The annual maintenance call-out is a great value-add, too. With solar becoming an essential option for many, it's critical to get the right advice and have the installation done to code. I highly recommend Greenhouse.

The folks at GreenHouse did a sterling job installing an upgrade to my home solar system. They knew that it would be challenging to sort out the comms between the Victron equipment and the SMA inverter but in the end their team made it look easy.

Absolutely satisfied with the service received from GreenHouse. From quote by Ethanne to installation by Mike and his team all were done professionally and efficiently. I highly recommend GreenHouse to walk the solar journey with you… After a year of absolutely no issues we recently had a lightning strike and GreenHouse had to assist to get us up and going again. It turned out that the only item that needed replavement was the controller - and this was replaced in no time…. Yes I would say Greenhouse is “fast and knowledgeable” in this new market segment where it is difficult to choose a supplier!.

Notes: Feedback. From when I had my first engagement with Patrick to investigate alternative energy solutions for my house, through the quoting process, the installation itself and after installation follow up meeting I have been so impressed by the professionalism of Patrick and the full team. It was such a wonderful experience and completely painless from a customer point of view. The remi ders of what I needed to do, the scheduling and generally the full experience I had with Greenhouse was exceptional. I am so glad I went with yourselves. What a great and professional team.
