Blue Mountain Energy Ltd., an authorised licensee of Eastman Kodak Company, is delighted to present the launch of the range of KODAK Solar Products — exclusively available through SegenSolar for the South African PV market.

This launch comes at a fitting time to celebrate South Africa’s initiative for a cleaner future.

Why solar?

A solar or photovoltaic (PV) system harnesses sunlight and transforms it into usable, storable power for homes and businesses.

This source of energy is free of CO2, avoiding the millions of tonnes of greenhouse gases emitted from burning fossil fuels in traditional power stations. What’s more: energy from the sun is inexhaustible, meaning it is a constant source of electricity.

This form of renewable energy is an effective solution for both families and small businesses since installation of solar panels is simple and with low operating costs. Plus, unlike wind power, solar is noise-free and has a comparatively low visual impact.

According to the South African Department of Energy, “Most areas in South Africa average more than 2 500 hours of sunshine per year, with an average solar-radiation level range of between 4.5 and 6.5kWh/m2per day.”19 Dec 2013

The country is ideally suited to adopt solar. This source of sustainable power has the capacity to reach even the most remote corners of the nation, as the systems can be comparatively less expensive than traditional sources, de-centralised and easy to deploy.

The standard warranty in the industry on a PV panel is an impressive 25 years. Once installed, the operational costs can be lower compared to most other forms of power generation. Maintenance is simple, and the robust equipment will keep your home or business powered at critical times of the day.

Solar power will not only provide you with energy when you need it most, but it can also save you a great deal on electricity bills over the years. Investing in a PV system means you are eligible for a 12B Tax Benefit under the Income Tax Act 58 of 1962, which can result in up to 30% additional savings on your purchase. The cost of purchasing and installing solar equipment is also dropping each year, thereby decreasing payback periods for a worthwhile investment.

Take a look at the ‘Savings Calculator‘ to find out just how much you could save by making the switch to solar.
