MetSolar is a professional service provider of solar power system solutions for residential and commercial electrical consumers.
Each design uses the latest in technology and highest quality standards to ensure we deliver a system with lifetimes and savings exceeding 20 years. The 3 main components of a system is solar panels, inverters and the mounting structure used to secure the panels to a structure or base. Our Suppliers standard warranties on panels include 25 year production guarantees, inverters minimum of 3 to 5 years (extendable up to 10 and 20 years) and mounting structures up to 20 year structural warrantees.
Using aerial/satellite images of targeted project area we are able to design the most ideal system. Factors such as sun positioning (winter and summer), structural integrity, wind loads, lighting strike averages, cable lengths and thicknesses and average radiation levels all play a crucial part in delivering a best in class system.
With the rapid increases in today’s electricity prices our systems are seeing pay back periods of as little as 3 – 5 years. We also offer packages with battery back up options which can assist you in running the essentials until utility power comes back on or all the way up to full off grid systems. Battery technology has come a far way and our lithium ion batteries have lifetimes often exceeding 10 years compared to the 2 years of traditional cheaper lead acid batteries. These solutions are very attractive but keep in mind could add between 40% and 50% to the cost. However many of our system designs cater for adding batteries in the future as the prices keep going down.
Each system is designed to fit each customers unique electrical needs while engineering the best solution based off the parameters and environment given. We have experience and offerings in system sizes ranging from 3kW (small residential) all the way up to 5MW (utility scale powering 5000 homes). Full turn key systems start around R80,000 upwards. This cost includes all services from design, deliver and install, commissioning all the way to issuing a professional Certificate of Compliance (COC) as per legal requirements.
