‘Sleighing’ Solar This Summer

by | Oct 27, 2020 | 0 comments

For most, electricity is associated with a lightbulb in the same way the festive season is with lights – a lot of them. It is not only one of the most widely used innovations, it is also a sign of life. But how do we get into celebration mode and simultaneously enjoy a conscious Christmas?

After an exceptionally tough 2020 and with Eskom (loadshedding) elves not operating from a naughty or nice list, it is critical to approach the upcoming summer months with the right amount of reckless excitement and cautious preparation. After all, lighting your candles should be by choice, not a necessity.

Fairy Lights on Summer Nights

Billions of kilowatts are annually consumed to power up traditional holiday lights and baking. Apart from choosing LED options, you can also make use of a smaller solar system, which can be your first step towards a modular power supply and becoming net-zero over the holidays. With it being the sunny season, it is literally the gift that keeps on giving.

A December to Remember

Most small businesses are still rearing back from suppressed trade during the lockdown months and are looking forward to catching up and trading through the summer season. Being caught off guard by loadshedding schedules and unpredicted losses due to a break in power supply does not have to be in your future. With finance options easily accessible through financial institutions and reputable solar installers, you can really reap the profits and pay off your system in 2021.

2021’Tis the season

Take the power back when planning your year. Make solar part of your sustainable strategy when considering your next investment. What is the cost to your equipment and business operations when there are power outages in your small business or home office? Not only does a solar back up solution provide you with a buffer against power fluctuations, but it can also assist with cash flow management, provide great tax incentives and make your business more resilient against electricity price hikes and grid dependencies (read more about how your business can benefit from Taking the Power Back – to the office).
