The consumption of power in an office building during the day time is much greater than that of the night time, which makes them ideally suited to solar power where electricity is generated only during the daytime.

 

Why should you consider solar alternatives:

Office buildings typically depends on electricity for most of their operations and have little need for heat energy. The consumption of power in an office building during the day time is much greater than that of the night time, which makes them ideally suited to solar power where electricity is generated only during the daytime.

 

There are different loads in an office building depending on the nature of work done at the particular office; critical loads may be present that need to run continuously.

Advantages of Solar Systems:

Offices and businesses use solar panels and solar thermal panels for a variety of uses including pre-heating ventilation air, water-heating, solar cooling and of course lighting & electricity.

 

Rooftop solar plants can deliver power during load-shedding, ensuring that critical loads are always running. Solar panels can be installed on different kinds of roofs, including covered parking areas, as long as the structure can bear the weight of the panels.

Solar energy in South Africa:

Most areas in 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.

The southern African region, and in fact the whole of Africa, has sunshine all year round. The annual 24-hour global solar radiation average is about 220 W/m2 for South Africa, compared with about 150 W/m2 for parts of the USA, and about 100 W/m2 for Europe and the United Kingdom. This makes South Africa's local resource one of the highest in the world.
