Renewable Energy Certification
It is very important to realize that a solar Photovoltaic (PV) system is a significant engineering project that should comply to the applicable international standards. Such a solution should be designed correctly to meet the customer’s demand and to determine the maximum financial benefit to the customer.
The Standards for PV Power Plants and equipment is unfortunately not keeping pace with the latest technology. AGE as a leader and member of SAPVIA (South African Photo Voltaic Industry Association), SAESA (South African Energy Storage Association) as well as a registered PVGreenCard Installer and comply with the IEC standards for all our equipment and manufacturing.

Benefits of Renewable Energy
By following the correct methodology and partnering with the specialist in the field, significant benefits can be realized by installing a Solar PV plant with energy storage.
These include the following:
Stable electricity supply
Factory operations will not be affected by load shedding and grid failures.
Solar PV systems require minimum maintenance, compared to other power systems (generators)
Save tons of CO2 emissions per year
A small industrial or commercial site can typically be financed over 80 months from the savings in electricity. No additional cash flow required.
Once the system is paid, all solar energy is essentially free, resulting in significant saving for around 15 years.
Make use of the current allowance by SARS to deduct 100% of the system cost in the first year after installation.
Less exposure to future tariff increases.
