Step to your new Photovoltaic System

After making up your mind to go for a PV plant and become your own electricity supplier, get in contact with African Sun Energy and we will make arrangements for a first site visit with one of our colleagues.

At this appointment we will, get an idea, evaluate the demand of electricity you need. Therefore we need at least the electricity bills of the last twelve months, or better a load profile of your power consumption.

We will check the existing rooftop areas and/or usable ground areas on your premises. We will also ask you for information about the structure and load weight of the usable roof areas as well as where your grid connection points are.

Back in office this information will be analyzed and a first plant design and layout will be done by our technical staff in Germany.

At a second meeting we will inform you about the possible size and kind of your new PV plant. Besides this we will inform you about the different ways of funding your project via IDC, DTI and the ESKOM rebate program. We will show you your savings on different calculation models and simulations of the performance of your plant.

After deciding to give us the order for your PV plant, and the signature of the contract documents, we will support you with the different applications for the ESKOM rebate and the IDC funding (GEEF).

Meanwhile at a third site meeting – technical audit – additional facts like the voltage level of the existing feeding points, position of DB boards, number and specifications of existing generators and so on will be evaluated.

If necessary a load profile will be measured by us to get proper information about your electricity consumption. Out of this information the final plant design and layout will be evaluated.

Next step is to start work on your site, African Sun Energy and it's subcontractor will build your new PV plant on your premises. Once installed and commissioned we will hand over your complete and running PV plant, and you become your own electricity supplier.
