Worldwide solar water heating technology is growing exponentially for a number of reasons, such as:
Photovoltaic Solar Panels
* an increased drive to cleaner energy production;
* a greater awareness of climate change and the issues around global warming;
* and importantly for the home owner, the increasing reliability and effectiveness of residential solar water heaters.
South Africa lags far behind, even though we have more sunshine than almost every other country!
PDC Solar now provides South Africans with an opportunity to take advantage of our country's abundant solar energy, and to make a cost-saving investment at the same time!
PDC Solar undertook its own research. Richard Palmer installed solar water heating at his Johannesburg home at the end of March 2007. He recorded a monthly savings of R 344-00 (or 670 Kw.h) Of course as energy bills rise (they are predicted to increase by 60 % in 2008 alone) the “savings” increase.
