Are solar water heaters so popular? It seems to be the case according to what I have been hearing. You are using between 25 and 65 percent of your electricity bill just to heat your water. This seems crazy so I checked. I am using about 50% of my electricity just on my geyser.
Its time to change to one of the reliable solar geysers in South Africa.
So what are the options?
Solar! Firstly solar is free! Well after installation. Secondly you can qualify for a rebate. This is cash back in your pocket. The amound is determined by which solar system you install. The system must have the SABS stamp of approval for you to qualify for cash back. You can get around R 5000 back for installing the right geyser. This is great news!
What happens when there is no sun?
No problem. The systems are installed with a backup so when there is a low amount of solar you can still have hot water through your electricity.
You should look into getting a solar water heater.
