Storage Solutions

BrightHouse Batteries

 

BrightHouse offers a range of our proven battery storage solutions that are durable and compact, easy to install and easy to use. Our products can be expanded with solar panels or additional storage if required.

You can monitor our systems via an app and enjoy our 24/7 monitoring and support services to ensure you always have power when it is needed most.

TESLA Powerwall

 

A self-powered home combines solar energy and Powerwall to independently power your home day and night. During the day, solar panels may produce more energy than your home uses.

 

Powerwall stores that excess solar energy and makes it available on demand, even after the sun has set.  Through  the Tesla app, you will have full visibility into your self-powered home.

How does Powerwall work during an outage?
Powerwall can detect an outage, disconnect from the grid, and automatically restore power to your home in a  fraction of a second. You will not even notice that the power went out. Your lights and appliances will continue to run without interruption. If you have solar and Powerwall, then solar energy will continue to power your home and recharge Powerwall.  Without Powerwall, solar will shut down during an outage.

My Questions

Energy Efficiency

Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency means using less energy to perform the same task. Energy waste is minimized and consumption of energy is reduced. Using energy efficient light bulbs and appliances.

A Solar System

A Solar System

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems are not mysterious but very simple: 1. First there are panels, which collect the sunlight and turn it into electricity. 2. The collected electricity is called Direct Current (DC) 3. The DC electricity is fed into an inverter, which converts the DC into a form your home uses called Alternating Current (AC). 4. Various switches called circuit breakers are included for safety reasons, and the whole system is connected with wires, neatly and safely put in conduits.

Batteries

Batteries

It’s a unit that consists out of one or more cells, where chemical energy is converted into electricity and used as a source of power. These electrochemical cells store electric charges and generate direct current (DC) through the conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy.

Quality

Quality

Quality in the renewable industry is of the utmost importance. Buying an inferior product will be more costly in the long run. As the consumer you need to ensure that you have a system that is durable and that will give you return on your investment over a lifespan of the product. Ensure that you always purchase and install top quality components. Quality components should always be followed up with quality service so please ensure that you have a reputable and registered service provider.

Solar Panel

Solar Panel

A solar panel that is designed to absorb the sun’s rays as a source of energy to convert to electricity. Solar panels allow particles of light, to knock electrons free from atoms, generating a flow of electricity. Solar panels are also called a PV Module.

Investment

Investment

Purchasing and installing a solar system is an investment. It has the ability to save you costs and give you energy security. Your ROI spans over a period of 5 to 8 years. Feeding your excess energy back into the grid also has the further ability to give you return on your investment.

Solar Rooftop

Solar Rooftop

This is also referred to as a rooftop photovoltaic power station or rooftop PV system. This photovoltaic system generated electricity via solar panels mounted on the rooftop of a residential or commercial building or structure. It is a system that has the easiest access to rays of sunlight.

TESLA Powerwall

TESLA Powerwall

This is a home energy storage unit designed and manufactured by Tesla. It consists of a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and stores electricity for solar self-consumption, time of use load shifting, backup power, and off-the-grid use. This systems is aesthetically pleasing and will look good anywhere you decide to mount it. The system is fully integrable with a PV solar system.

Trusted Suppliers

Trusted Suppliers

Use a reputable company that has relevant experience and that consists out of a team of experts that range from senior electrical engineers to client service experts. Find a service provider that only uses tier 1 bankable components that adheres to international standards. The chosen service provider will have to have a good infrastructure and support services. Reach out to us and we will recommend various service providers for your specific needs.

Wind Energy

Wind Energy

Wind energy describes the process by which wind is used to generate electricity. This source of power uses the wind to provide the mechanical power through wind turbines. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power.

Design

Design

A Solar and battery design is the process of designing a solution that is tailored to the individual consumer’s needs. The system is designed by a electrical engineer that will recommend the system that will give you the most efficient and effective way of generating and storing energy for your home and business.

W Watt - is a unit of power.

SSEG Registration

SSEG Registration

Solar systems need to be registered with the municipality and be issued a certificate of compliance.

Lithium Ion

Lithium Ion

A lithium-ion battery or Li-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery. The three primary functional components of a lithium-ion battery are the positive and negative electrodes and electrolyte. Generally, the negative electrode of a conventional lithium-ion cell is made from carbon. The positive electrode is a metal oxide, and the electrolyte is a lithium salt in an organic solvent.

Colour Control Unit

Colour Control Unit

The Color Control GX (CCGX) sits at the heart of your energy installation. All the other system-components - such as inverter/chargers, solar chargers, and batteries - are connected to it. The CCGX ensures that they all work in harmony.

PV Green Card

PV Green Card

The PV GreenCard has been developed to promote safe and high-quality Solar PV installations. The PV GreenCard is an as built report for the Solar PV system owner and a checklist for the installer which qualified installers provide to their clients on the completion of a project. The installer is able to use the PV GreenCard to declare compliance with relevant standards as well as safety guidelines for PV installation.

Inverter

Inverter

A solar inverter or PV inverter, is a type of electrical converter which converts the variable direct current (DC) output of a photovoltaic (PV) solar panel into a utility frequency alternating current (AC) that can be fed into a commercial electrical grid or used by a local, off-grid electrical network. It is a critical balance of system (BOS)–component in a photovoltaic system, allowing the use of ordinary AC-powered equipment. Solar power inverters have special functions adapted for use with
