Affordable Solar Systems: How to Harness the Sun Without Breaking the Bank

In this blog, we’ll guide you through the nuts and bolts of acquiring affordable solar systems in South Africa. The journey towards sustainable energy doesn’t have to put a hole in your pocket! The South African sun is a beautiful yet unyielding natural resource that beats down on our landscapes and rooftops year-round. It’s a powerhouse of untapped energy, waiting to be harnessed. While many of us perceive solar power as an expensive luxury reserved for well-heeled businesses and households, this is far from the truth. 


The Cost Barrier Myth

One of the significant barriers that South Africans face when considering the transition to solar energy is the perceived high cost. However, the falling prices of solar panels and associated technologies have made it increasingly affordable for the average household. “The price of solar panels has dropped by 70% over the last decade,” reports the International Energy Agency. This makes the prospect of installing affordable solar systems more realistic than ever before.


Return on Investment 

It’s important to view your solar system as a long-term investment. Even if the initial costs are daunting, the return on investment (ROI) can be substantial. Depending on the size and efficiency of your solar panel setup, you can save thousands of Rand on your annual electricity bill. Some homeowners even manage to generate excess power, which they sell back to the grid.

When it comes to affordable solar systems in South Africa, Genergy is the go-to company you can rely on. With years of industry expertise, they offer an array of customised solar solutions that cater to a variety of needs and budgets. Their competitive pricing is complemented by state-of-the-art technology, ensuring not only cost-effectiveness but also high performance and durability.

Their unwavering commitment to quality and customer satisfaction solidifies their reputation as the ideal partner for anyone looking to make the transition to sustainable, off-the-grid energy.


DIY Solar Systems

For those who are handy with tools and have a decent understanding of electrical systems, a DIY solar installation can be a cost-effective solution. Various kits are available on the market that come with step-by-step installation guides. However, do note that incorrect installation could void the warranty of the panels or even cause damage. Hence, unless you are confident in your skills, it’s usually advisable to leave the installation to professionals.


Second-hand Panels and Components

One often-overlooked way to acquire affordable solar systems is by buying second-hand panels and components. Many businesses upgrade their solar installations and sell off their older but still functional systems at a reduced price. Just be cautious and ensure that the panels are in good condition and come with a warranty, even if limited.



With the abundance of sunlight that graces South Africa, it’s a no-brainer to consider transitioning to solar power. Affordable solar systems are not a distant dream but a reality that many South Africans can now embrace. With the falling price of technology, companies like Genergy Solar paving the way, the time has never been better to make the switch.

“To unpathed waters, undreamed shores” – let these words from William Shakespeare inspire you to explore the uncharted territories of sustainable energy. The sun is shining down on you, both literally and metaphorically; all you have to do is harness its power without breaking the bank.
