When is the price of a solar system too good to be true
When deciding to go solar, many potential solar users look for the cheapest solution. It is obvious they want the cheapest solution. This human nature. We try and go for the cheapest product or service in order to save and spend our hard earned money on other things. This is not always the best way to get a solar solution. The truth of the matter is cheap is expensive. Our advice to you therefore when you are looking for solar systems is to do the following:
1. Understand your needs first
What is it that you need the solar system for in the first place? Is it to get lighting at night time or is to for watching TV? Do you want the system to power your fridge and for how long? Do you have borehole? All these questions have a bearing on the system you need. Not all systems produce the same amount of power. Whatever you need your systems for, the most important thing to know is why you need solar and what you need solar to do for you. If you need power at night that means you will need to invest in good batteries that can store energy for use at night repeatedly for many years. It also means that you need a strong solar panel array that can produce enough power to charge your batteries fully. Batteries need to be taken care of in order to last long. That means you should never abuse them and deplete their power to below appropriate set thresholds. Learn about how to take care of your batteries here.
