LEADING SOLAR ENERGY PROVIDER

OF ENERGY EFFICIENT SOLUTIONS IN THE
RENEWABLE ENERGY MARKET

Synergy Energy Solutions PTY (LTD) is a company established in 2010, with all employees having extended knowledge and experience in energy efficient products.

We supply quality, energy efficient products to the residential, commercial and industrial markets.

Giving our customers a sustainable, long term investment, while minimizing our environmental impact and incorporating skill, knowledge, innovation and service excellence to all tailor-made solutions.

Our goal is to become a recognized leader in Africa by our valued customers in the challenging and growing energy efficient market, and to provide our customers with energy efficient products that work and have substantial saving.

WE PERFORM A THOROUGH LOAD ANALYSES AND ISSUING OF COC

Unfortunately electricity bills cannot reveal day and night usage, selective loads or peak demands, which need to be factored into your PV solution.
A thorough load analysis is essential and that’s why we visit your premises and set-up loggers on your electricity distribution board for at least a week or two. We also provide you with a comprehensive view of where your electricity usage is going, what steps are to be taken to reduce usage and save you money, depending on what size system and the solutions we specify for you, to give you an accurate picture on your investment.
A thorough examination of your electricity needs helps you to determine the size and cost of the system you will need; fluctuations in your energy usage during the day, night and months to manage peak demands. Energy saving measures you can implement to reduce your electricity use before installing PV so that you save on the costs of a bigger system simply by being more efficient.

Once your solar PV or backup system has been installed, it’s important to ensure that a Certificate of Compliance (CoC) is issued to verify that the electrician who performed the installation has complied with the rules and regulations that are in place to assure a safe installation.

As the property owner, you are responsible for being in possession of a valid Certificate of Compliance according to the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Act 85 of 1993 (OHS Act). Without a valid electrical CoC, you will find it difficult to prove that you have taken reasonable precautions should anything go wrong. Insurance companies might not pay out for damages; and if someone is injured or dies as a result of the installation, you could be held liable as the property owner.

SYNERGY ENERGY IS NOW

PV GREEN CARD CERTIFIED

The PV GreenCard is an industry led quality label that is inclusive in nature and becomes the key to ensure a high standard of quality for small-scale Solar PV installations.
It is recommended that a PV GreenCard should be issued with every small-scale Solar PV installation by suitable qualified installers.

The installer is able to use the PV GreenCard to declare compliance with relevant standards as well as safety guidelines for PV installation. This will provide investor confidence, commitment from participating industry players and empowerment of the Solar PV system owner.

The PV GreenCard has been developed to promote safe and high-quality Solar PV installations. The PV GreenCard Programme focuses on education, skills development, and training to build installer capacity as well as improve standards development and compliance in line with international best practice.

 

During Lockdown

UPDATE – During the nations ‘lock down’ period, we are still available to respond and assist in any EMERGENCY situations. We want to reassure all our customers that we’re committed and prepared to offer our support. Please note we will not be able to attend to any installations during this period.

AFFORDABLE HOME SOLUTIONS

A grid-tied system is a basic solar installation that uses a standard grid-tied inverter with no battery storage. This is perfect for customers who are already on the grid and want to add solar to their homes. These systems can qualify for municipal incentives, which help pay for the system.

Remember to check out our Online Store for additional offers and other upgrading options. We take great care in constructing custom solutions that will meet your needs, offering you value and a great return on investment.

No Hidden Costs

It is true that solar energy is indeed free, but let’s be clear, there are initial setup and transfer costs. With increased advances in technology and greater awareness toward the need of affordable, renewable energy, the cost of solar energy solutions have decreased.

Supplementing your household energy intake, by starting off gradually with a smaller system, is a great way of coping with the ongoing increase in energy costs. Solar energy systems are durable and low maintenance. Once you’re equipped, you’re set to endlessly enjoy trouble free energy.

Home Efficiency Upgrade

 

Many homeowners move over to solar power and the most common reasons are: cutting energy costs and improving the environment.

Many people are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade that also improves property value.

Guarding against increasing energy costs and a substantial return on investment for over a 20 year period, is another good way of investing your capital.

At Synergy Energy Soltions (Pty) Ltd, we dedicate ourselves to improving the living standards of every client.

We offer both energy efficient solutions that result in actual savings and turning these solutions into comfortable living spaces.

ENEGRY SAVINGS

Converting to a solar powered system could not be simpler. You only require two initial components:

  • Solar PV Panels – which converts sunlight into electricity.
  • Inverters – that converts received electricity from the solar panels from DC in to AC.
  • Batteries (optional) – to store electricity for use at a later stage.

With no switching between solar power and grid power there is a continuous supply of both powers with no dips in power outage, ensuring for a safe use to all sensitive equipment and buildings being supplied.

LIVING COMFORT

Water heating is generally accounting for being the highest consumer of energy in homes and the workplace, making it one of the main reasons why consumers are moving toward conserving energy.

Solar water heating systems are perfect for providing hot water where no electrical back up is available. They are also very easy to maintain.

Supplementing your existing electricity needs with a solar water heating solution could shave you in excess of 35% off your monthly electricity bill.

THREE EASY STEPS

Step One –
YOUR INITIAL NEEDS

Identifying what you initially want out of your solar energy investment is the first step to finding the best solar energy solution that suits your pocket and situation.

Wether you want to cut your electricity bills, improve your living standards, such as installing under floor heating, or increase your overall property value whilst enjoying an upgrade to your living conditions.

Step Two –  INDEPENDENCE

Step Two –  INDEPENDENCE

The conversion of sunlight into heat for water heating using a solar thermal collector.

A variety of configurations are available at varying costs to provide solutions in different climates and latitudes.

SOLAR WATER HEATING

A heat pump uses mechanical work to move heat from a low temperature source to a high temperature sink. Heat Pumps use 3 to 4 times less energy than conventional electric elements. Saving you up to 75%.

 

HEAT PUMP WATER HEATING

Transforms your home environment and produces that warm feeling, making underfloor heating solutions the most cost effective way of heating your home.

Thus using up to 70% less energy than conventional heating.

WATER UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Is where piping is inserted into the walls and warm water is then circulated through the pipes, heating the walls.

The heated walls then radiate heat into the rooms, heating the room. The benefits are that the system does not take up any wall space like conventional wall panels.

HYDRONIC WALL HEATING

 

A Solar PV (Photovoltaic) system uses the sun to generate electricity during daylight hours.

Currently, solar energy delivers between 18% to 25% return on investment per year.

 

PV SOLAR SOLUTION

The inverter AC is able to cool or heat your room faster than the non-inverter.

The technology of the inverters not only make cooling and heating more efficient, but it also makes the AC’s life longer.
