Many people around the world, in both urban and rural communities, struggle to break out of the cycle of poverty. One of the reasons is a lack of electricity. A staggering 600 million people in Africa are without reliable, affordable electricity.

Solar power has been in a constant state of innovation, with new advances in solar panel technology announced almost every week. Throughout 2017, there were milestones in solar efficiency, solar energy storage, wearable solar technology and solar design tech.

South Africans have been at the mercy of Eskom and municipal electricity for nearly a full century. Rising costs of power, mismanagement of the infrastructure and less bang for your buck every year - how time flies when you’re having fun!

Here in South Africa, some things are pretty certain: greedy politicians, bad roads, inconsistent sports teams - and an unreliable and expensive electrical grid system. Another thing we can be sure of – lots and lots of lovely sunshine.

1. What is solar heating?

The term “solar” comes from the Latin word Sol, meaning sun in modern English. As South Africans, we’re more than familiar with the big fiery heavenly body that gives us life – and feels like it’s trying to kill us, in summer!
