Solar power is now cheaper than purchasing electricity from the grid, and the world knows it, too. Since 2017, global investment in renewable energy has substantially outpaced that of fossil fuels.  

Joining the push towards a more renewable future are KODAK Solar Products — dependable solution that is taking households off-grid across Africa…  

Solar for…  


Becoming energy self-sufficient is just one of the various benefits that you’ll experience when you invest in a PV system.  

Load shedding has undoubtedly become a burden on the lives of millions in South Africa, leaving both homeowners and business owners without power during critical times of the day. Many face huge disruptions to their daily routines owing to the unpredictable grid, and a national monopoly on power supplies means there is little choice but to wait out the periods of darkness. 

The solution, of course, is solar power.  

This form of renewable energy gives you independence from the grid for a dependable, continuous supply of electricity. More specifically, the range of KODAK Solar Products allows customers to design a semi-bespoke hybrid system, optimised precisely to each user’s needs.  

A rainy day 

Up-to-scale battery storage solutions are vital in helping solar reach its full potential. As this form of renewable power is so variable, you need to have a system in place to store any surplus energy for use in times of weaker sunshine. Or, perhaps, during periods of load shedding when you need that power most.  

A secure source of energy 24 hours a day is possible with solar power, whether connected to the grid or not. Particularly for those living off-grid, an energy storage system gives, reliable energy supplies, as you can use the power generated during the day throughout the night.  

Solar energy storage responds to emergency power requirements rapidly, as the power stored in on-site batteries is readily available for use. A brilliant feature of a variety of KODAK Off-Grid Inverters is that they offer zero transfer time to protect mission-critical loads from online computer servers, for example. Such immediate transfer times means large quantities of data don’t have to be lost when load shedding comes into play.
