Sadly, we South Africans live in a country where electricity tariffs have risen a massive 400% in less than ten years since 2008! We just ‘bite the bullet’ (as we do with so many of the other unjust things we face) and pay up, but should we? - Or more to the point do we need to? From time to time we also face ‘load shedding’ where electricity is not even an available resource for as long as ESKOM choose to withhold it. Little wonder that many more people are looking for a cheaper, more reliable alternative and the surprising thing is that there is just such an alternative which is often ignored – its Solar Energy.

For the average residential consumer it may be a costly alternative, because to the individual home-owner the purchase, installation and maintenance costs can be quite steep. However, South Africa have nearly 2 million residential Sectional Title homes, for whom this is an absolutely viable proposition, because a number of individuals can benefit from one system and thanks to innovative, far thinking Solar Energy companies, like South Africa’s Zeroth Energy, a Solar Rental option is now available to sectional title complexes, making the switch both cost free and seamless. So, as a body corporate or resident of just such a housing complex, read on to learn about 4 great benefits of alternate energy for Sectional title complexes:

  1. Raising funds is not an issue – With just about anything else that a Body corporate needs to introduce to a complex, funds need to be raised and this cost burden usually ultimately falls to the residents. With Solar Rental however, there is no set up cost. A good Solar Rental company will meet with the body corporate and have a meeting with residents to explain the benefits and the set up process, so that everyone is happy prior to installation.
  2. Levies don’t go up – Because installation of your complex’s own Solar ‘power station’ is free and both on-going maintenance and monitoring of the system is included with the rental, there are no additional costs to add to residents levies. This is a good long term investment that actually adds to the value of properties in the complex and costs residents nothing!
  3. The Body corporate saves money to effect improvements – The savings on electricity when Solar Energy is coupled with the grid are immediate with Solar Rental ...and substantial. Anything from 5% to a whopping 25% recorded in some cases can be saved on bills that sometimes exceed R1m a year ...and this saving goes directly to the body corporate, which pays the energy costs. Think of what this can mean to the complex! A new swimming pool, better gardens, new communal areas or of course general maintenance. In a complex that doesn’t need much improvement it could even mean a lowering of levies!
  4. Cleaner, better living – For some this is the greatest benefit of all. For your children to live in a less polluted area, or at least know they are contributing to a greener planet, something kids today are far more aware of than ever before. You can have the peace of mind of knowing that instead of contributing to the extortion of the national grid, the same money has done something to improve our country and standard of living!
