    Nice! Every building should have this on the roof. Glad to see it's becoming more affordable too.

    Wish I had the capital. Flat roofed double garage would be perfect, the batteries etc, can be there.

    And add to that a couple of 10 000 litre water tanks, and most households would be good to go.

    Agreed, I look on in envy at what Tesla is offering in the US... I wish we could have that sort of offering here

    It'll be interesting to see how these panels stand up to a hail storm, I am not wishing for it as I have a solar geyser but the promise of "hail proof" is thrown around too easily by the manufacturers and suppliers.

    And Eskom will need to push up prices even more.

    How many Northern JHB estates are moving over to solar panel rooftops? If not.. why not? I suspect this will become a big push in the next year or two. Watch this space.. and new taxes to save Eskom (as poor can’t pay for everything. Municipalities will need to find new leaching revenue generating methods

    Those solar tiles are a waste of money and inefficient.

    I believe posters are recognised by their sig... so I made one.

    Eskom is doing their best to make this unviable for developers.
