Solar Energy for businesses and commercial applications can be a cost-effective, practical, and effective method of reducing energy costs and an organisation’s environmental footprint.
The benefit of solar energy is justified purely on financial terms for most businesses, whilst for others, it may be a combination of financial, environmental, marketing and green credentials that determine their decision.
Contact MetSolar today for us to show you the many advantages of installing a solar power system, put together an estimate and helping you understand the entire process.
With Eskom and Municipalities, prices constantly increasing and solar power systems at record low pricing, we are now seeing a surge of commercial solar installations across Africa.
Our system designers and professionals are able to offer you a solution with an attractive payback period averaging between 3 to 5 years depending mostly on your current cost of electricity which we can evaluate from previous electricity bills.
The ROI projections are also dependent on each business’s energy usage, cost of energy, and operational requirements.
As from 1 January 2016, Section 12b of the Income Tax Act (South Africa) was amended from a three-year (50% – 30% – 20%) accelerated depreciation allowance on renewable energy to an even quicker depreciation allowance of ONE year (100%).
With this incentive, it makes the financial model of a commercial roof-top, grid-tied, solar power system look very attractive.

Companies are now starting to require that suppliers are environmentally aware in their operations. Environmental aspects now form part of the safety, health, environmental and quality categories. Getting away from fossil fuels and their environmentally damaging nature truly shows a positive commitment to the environment.
