This forms the backbone of every Blackwood Power solar system and the hardware components used are common to every installation we do.
You save electricity costs
You increase your independance from the volatility of Eskom’s electricity price increases
You increase the value of your property and protect the environment
The home management system automatically manages your household appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers, allowing you to shift your consumption to times when the solar system is performing at peak output, even when you’re not at home
The Blackwood Power Meter and management system allows you to keep track of your electricity consumption and enables you to better manage your power utilization
The system has a 20-year warranty
Once legislation provides for it, you’ll be able to feed the excess electricity produced by your system back into the utility grid; your local council will credit your rates bill accordingly and you’ll be billed by Blackwood Power for its portion on a monthly basis
You can upgrade your system at any time by adding storage solutions
It is important to note that with current technologies, the Standard solar system will STOP producing power when Eskom (or the municipality) is down. It is therefore of NO BENEFIT DURING LOAD-SHEDDING HOURS. To achieve greater independence during power outages, you’ll need the BLACKWOOD POWER STORAGE-ENABLED SOLAR SOLUTION.
