GeyserWorx® vs Complete Solar Installations

The capital outlay you require on a complete solar installation far outways the cost involved in installing a Geyserworx® system.

For instance, the capital needed to install 4kW of solar power in your home is about 10x the cost of GeyserWorx. Bearing in mind that your normal geyser consumes 4kW by itself, your installed 4kW solar system would not be able to run your household requirements when the geyser is heating water.


Investment Payback

Renewable energy equipment require an initial investment to start. GeyserWorx®, Wind Turbines and complete solar solutions require big expenditure to get going. They make up for that expense by saving you money in the long term.

By limiting your initial expenditure and maximizing your return on investment, the payback period can be reduced significantly. Also being able to expand your energy saving investment modularly, initial cost can be limited.

This gives you the opportunity to use diverse alternative energy sources such as gas, wind, solar, etc. By diversifying energy sources, you are not dependent on a single technology. Thereby reducing your risk of obsolescence and price fluctuations.

Solar Radiation

South Africa enjoys almost the perfect climate for solar water heating. South Africa average more than 2 500 hours of sunshine per year, and average solar-radiation levels range between 4.5 and 6.5kWh/m2 in one day, compared to half that for cities like London in the Northern hemisphere.

Solar energy is the most abundant permanent energy resource on earth and it is available for use in its direct (solar radiation) and indirect (wind, biomass, hydro, ocean etc.) forms. This commentary is limited to the direct use of solar radiation, the earth’s prime energy resource.

Carbon Tax

Recognising the importance of reducing carbon emissions and foreseeing the benefits that a low carbon economy can bring, the South African government has committed to ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reductions of 34% by 2020 and 42% by 2025 against a business as usual curve. Policies, frameworks and financial instruments need to support these commitments for any hope of achieving such reductions. The purpose of a carbon tax, seen too often as a way to increase the tax base, is intended more to send the necessary price signals to change consumer behaviours and stimulate investor appetite to shift towards low carbon options. With a commitment to implement revenue recycling measures the effects on economic growth in the broader economy should be minimal.

A carbon tax penalises companies and individuals that emit more carbon. Emissions can occur from various sources although the most common is fuel combustion in transportation and electricity generation. To put this into perspective, 1kg of carbon dioxide is emitted for every kilowatt hour of electricity generated in South Africa. The net result is that becoming energy efficient and lowering energy consumption becomes increasingly important.

Using pricing signals a carbon tax is designed to create incentives for companies, businesses and individuals to change their behaviors, consumption patterns and products from being carbon intensive to low carbon alternatives. This transition to low carbon options reduces our reliance on polluting fossil fuels and ultimately reduces emissions.
