With this design from PSSP, even
though a customer is connected to the Eskom electricity grid, the solar power electricity
created will be used first. In this comes the savings that over the years will
pay for the customerís investment. This solution can be further extended at
anytime to increase the production of solar energy or totally off-grid at a
further date. Any excess electricity created will be fed back into the Eskom
grid, which PSSP hopes Eskom will come to the table and pay for.
At this stage the customer has the
fall back of the Eskom grid for their business to carry on regardless. This
solution is what PSSP recommends until such time as the customer is comfortable
on taking the next step.
With most manufacturers having a
warranty of 25 years, the pay back of the investment is guaranteed. In this
regard, the customer becomes their own electricity provider.
Stand-alone solar power systems are
totally off Eskomís grid, when either the area has no power supply, or the
customer wants it to be so. This has found to be the most expensive option. The
expense comes in when batteries have to be used to store the electricity for a
period of +- 19 hours. Keeping in mind that the best time for solar energy to
be created is between 10am Ė 3pm. After that, even though there might be energy
created, but batteries have to be used to run everything normally done by
Eskomís grid. The thing to remember though is the busy times of the day for
most businesses, is during the day +- 7am Ė 7pm , usually at night unless
running a 24 hours services most employees are at home.
With this you increase your
consumption of self produced solar power,
reducing the electricity purchase from the public grid and achieve independency
from rising electricity prices. Usually used with both Grid and Off-Grid
Solutions for night time electricity and Disaster Recovery (UPS function).
Keeping in mind that companies have
already bought expensive options to keep their businesses working, Professional
Solar Systems will endeavour to use all existing equipment in the end result if
PDDS will work with the customer, not only to put the
best business solution in place, but will help with further saving of
electricity where it can be done.
Small changes like running LED lights, changing the
Eskom tariffs that the customer runs on.
Unfortunately, Eskom, not only will be increasing their tariffs in June, but have applied for a further increase sometime at the end of the year.
To be Environment conscious is the norm these days and we are completely up to date on that. All our designs are created following the best environmental practices:
The practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a Solar Systems´s life-cycle: from Siting to Design, installation, operation, maintenance, renovation, and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort
Our mission is basically comprised of principles
