Why Solar?

1. Save money from day 1

Purchase energy via one of our bespoke financial solutions or generate your own at a discount on Eskom rates. Additionally, the system could cut fixed kVA costs via peak shaving opportunities.

2. Public Relations Boost

Going green is a great way to get a much-needed public relations boost, and shows your customers that you are pro-actively pursuing lower costs and resulting prices.

3. Increase the value of your property

Consider your solar system a tenant on your unused roof space, paying rent every month on time, with above inflationary increased income for the next 20 years+

4. Create Jobs and Stimulate the Economy

Support a SMME and an upstream industry rather than paying towards corruption and wastage in a State Owned Enterprise

5. Combat load shedding

With generators and battery storage available under all our product offerings, our offerings will assist in combatting down-time and its related operational cost. This could allow your business to stay open and keep pushing through. When your competitors are down, this can make all the difference.

6. Powerful Return on Investment

Should you decide to purchase the system outright, or utilise the buy-out clause of our financial products, you could cover your investment within 3-5 years, earning passive income for 15 years+ thereafter.

7. Hedge against carbon Tax

The Carbon Tax Act 15 of 2019 intends to provide for the imposition of a tax on the carbon dioxide (CO2) equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions, and its cost implications to businesses is matter of when and not if.

8. Fewer Global Warming Emissions

Making the switch to a renewable energy form can ensure you’re doing your part in creating a healthier environment. An average sized solar installation of 63kWp will effect the following:

  • Water Saving – 163,661 Litres p.a.
  • CO2 Emissions Cut – 130,928 Kg p.a.
  • Trees Replaced – 156 p.a.

Flexible Solar Energy Solutions

Grid Tie Solar

Grid Tied systems are solar PV systems that only generate power when the power grid is available. It is the most cost effective, generally providing savings from day 1, though it does not supply energy during times of load shedding. This is the first step into clean energy and can be upgraded to allow for battery storage should this become a requirement in the future.

Grid Tie with Generator

This solution provides you with the financial benefit of the normal Grid Tie solution, with the added benefit of the system being integrated with your current generator, or one via our financial solution. This is ideal as an entry level load shedding solution, as the two systems work in unison during daytime load shedding periods, providing you with both power and drastically reduced fuel cost on the generator.

Solar + Battery Backup

The complete solar and battery backup solution. Solutions are customised to the level of backup dependent on specific operational needs, with the additional option to integrate the system with a generator. Ideal for load shedding and long term electricity savings.

Affordable Ownership Options

Outright purchase

Claim 100% depreciation of the system cost under Section 12B of the Income Tax Act reducing your tax liability.
You have the option to contract RBN to handle the maintenance and insurance.

Power purchase agreement (PPA)

A PPA is a contractual agreement between RBN and your business which enables you to buy 100% of our PV-produced electricity at a fixed tariff over a period, usually 20 years. Savings from day 1.
No capital outlay to the client, no ongoing maintenance costs involved.

Rental / Lease to Own

Clients lease the solar panels and components at a fixed rated for the period of the agreements, usually 20 years. Savings from day 1.
Again there is no capital outlay, set-up, or ongoing costs involved.

Hybrid

A bespoke financial design to suit your specific needs, combining a PPA/Lease option with a reduced capital contribution.

Speak to us for an affordable long term solution to enable you to save on your energy costs.
