Although the above statistics apply to the UK, a very similar trend will be found worldwide. Heating water accounts for up to 50% of electricity bills in South Africa. The solution to this financial and environmental issue is solar water heaters. Photovoltaic solar panels and solar water heating collectors have increased in efficiency and decreased in cost. South Africa is ideal for solar energy with its high irradiation rates. At current Eskom electricity tariffs, solar geysers can amortize themselves in 36 months. With the proposed 25% annual Eskom tariff increase, your solar geyser will be paid-off even quicker. Now is the time to capitalize on Eskom’s renewable energy rebate programme (this scheme will not last forever!). Water Rhapsody’s acquisition Yes Solar enables us to supply high quality Eskom-approved Solsquare solar geysers. Solsquare solar geysers are made in Germany, are SABS-approved and carry a 10-year warrantee (unlike most other solar water heating systems that carry or 5-year warrantee or less).
