Cape Town is anti-solar.
Maybe source your own material and just pay for labour, if you know what to look for, I would budget R10k for labour depending on the amount of work that has to be done but I would expect to pay less than that.
I think Tariq got his approved in less than a month.Yup in Cape Town...bought my stuff last year. Still waiting on the SSEG application to allow me to install panels.
Eventually got so fed up with loadshedding earlier this month, that I went ahead and installed the inverter+batteries. Panels still waiting in the garage.
At least the house easily survives loadshedding now. Well up to stage 4 it will. But the batteries take longer to charge if you don't have the solar panels, as the inverter only draws up to 350w from the grid for charging in backup mode.
ps. If anyone knows how to get my SSEG app approved faster I would be super happy, been waiting months now, almost a year
ah ok thank you. Mine was sent in August...nothing yet. The person handling it, is not responding to emails nothing. the sseg.east email line just forwards the mails again to her.One week for approval to install and one week for approval to commission , but I sent in my application during level 4 lockdown in May
As a Stormers fan there's no need to watch more than 10 minutes. .Hi guys noob here wrt inverters.. Quick question.. If I buy an inverter.. The one that come with a single battery.. How long will it last if only have my tv(220w + soundbar 23W + router(not sure how much power router uses?) will it last the 4 hrs of load shedding? Thx in advance.. Ps.. I could also unplug the soundbar during loadshedding and play sound through TV if this will help
