The City of Cape Town has released their SSEG tariff for residential and commercial clients. The principle behind this is simple: replace your municipal electricity with Solar Power and build a credit on the weekend with the feed-in tariff. This can offset your electricity bill significantly, by more than 75%! The key components to successful commercial Solar Systems like this are:
With these principles in mind we have successfully implemented over 1000kWp of Photovoltaic Systems and a content of over 50% of Industrial size systems. Our satisfied clients gained competitive advantage through reducing their overhead costs significantly for the next 25+ years. Our commercial Solar Systems will do the same for you.

Most industrial PV Systems are grid-tied. The permanent connection to the grid is necessary to account for cloudy days and night-time consumption.
However, your Photovoltaic System can reduce your electricity consumption and therefore your electricity bill during daytime by more than 75% on your annual average. Increasing the coverage to 90% and further is difficult and mostly only possible in companies with seasonal work. NERSA does not allow you to become a net-producer, which means you have to buy 1kWh more from the grid than you feed back. A proper consultation from Treetops backed by detailed measurements will ensure the best cost-benefit-ratio for your business.
The prices for long-lasting batteries have reached the point of financial viability, when paired with a Photovoltaic System. These battery storages have the distinct benefit of ensuring your electricity supply, even during load-shedding and power outages. Additionally, a correctly sized PV System and Battery will fix your price for electricity for the next 15+ years to less than R2/kWh. We can assist you to keep your business operational during power failures!
An industrial PV System will fix a significant amount of your annual overhead costs of your business. There is no escalation of costs. This gives you an advantage to your competitors and eases your budgeting process.
The best part about this advantage: it pays for itself. Our commercial Photovoltaic Systems have a payback period between 3 and 6 years, depending on your electricity tariff and consumption habits. We can provide you with on-balance-sheet and off-balance-sheet financing options for your PV System. After 6-10 years you will own the system, with a R0 investment in it.
