How does it work?

As with most of the southern hemisphere, South Africa is in the fortunate position that it has a very high solar potential, making this renewable energy source an attractive possibility.

Photovoltaics (PV) is best known as a method for generating electric power by using semiconducting silicone solar cells to convert energy from the sun into a flow of electrons. In other words, PV systems convert sunlight directly into electricity.
