The key to a successful Renewable Energy System is to take an analytical approach and deep technical understanding of the objectives before the desire phase of the project can begin.
To this end, Solterra Cape/West Coast utilises the most advanced electrical data capturing, logging, software and test equipment on the market to fully understand the clients exact requirements before a system design is carried out.
By carrying out an energy audit, capturing the data and analysing and using the information in the system design, a suitable outcome is achieved.
If you use an electrical connection of 3 Kw.h or more, an energy audit is highly recommended as we have found that the energy usage profile becomes reasonably complex from the size, requiring a professional approach to mapping and optimising the use of energy within your home or organisation.
Once traditional methods of energy efficiency (e.g. efficient appliances, LED lighting and efficient pumps etc) have been exhausted we then look at ways in which the integration of Solar PV & Thermal (water) systems can result in overall savings much greater than the rated solar plant output.
