Step to your new Photovoltaic System

Procedures to your investment to clean and cost effective energy on your premises

a) Meeting - Your initial meeting with African Sun Energy.

b) Assessment - Your needs for Solar effective energy.

c) Analysis -Site Visit and need electric bill for the past 12 months.

d) Engineering- Our German Team designs your customized system.

e) Presentation- We present our special design plan for your approval which includes: . Energy Analysis to provide your company with the right design you need.  Satellite overview with the panel layout. Model that will break-up the cost of the system incl. rebates, Carbon tax from 2015 and most important,  the savings and the payback period to pay of the system.

f) Financing - Discuss the payment and financing options.

g) Contract Awarded – Sign Contract with African Sun Energy.

h) Rebates - Apply with signed contracts for rebates from Eskom and DTI.

 i) Construction - Once incentives and authority approvals are secured, Africa Sun Energy operations department handles and coordinates the entire construction period for you.

 j) Savings - You will start seeing savings on your utility bills and experience all the benefits of your own green solar energy.


If the sun is your only available source of energy the choice is simple, convert daytime to energy. You will choose a solar system in order to meet your demand for energy. If there are more sources available these could support your solar system, because the fact is, the sun isn’t always able to cover your energy demand. Solar systems is often supported by a generator set or battery bank or can be connected to the grid electricity in the evenings or cloudy days. African Sun Energy will start with a load profile measurements to determine the load on your system

At this appointment we will, get an idea, and evaluate the demand of electricity your company needs. Therefore we at least need 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.

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 signing of the contract documents we will support you with the different applications for the ESKOM rebate and the IDC funding (GEEF).

Meanwhile this at a third site meeting – technical audit – additional facts like existing feeding points, voltage level, position of DB boards, 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 its 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 will become your own electricity supplier.
