Flexible Solar Energy Solutions

Grid Tie Solar

Grid Tied systems are solar PV systems that only generate power when the power grid is available. It is the most cost effective, generally providing savings from day 1, though it does not supply energy during times of load shedding.

This is the first step into clean energy and can be upgraded to allow for battery storage should this become a requirement in the future.

Grid Tie with Generator

This solution provides you with the financial benefit of the normal Grid Tie solution, with the added benefit of the system being integrated with your current generator. This is ideal as an entry level load shedding solution, as the two systems work in unison during daytime load shedding periods, providing you with both power and drastically reduced fuel cost on the generator.

Solar + Battery Backup

The complete solar and battery backup solution. Solutions are customised to the level of backup dependent on specific operational needs, with the additional option to integrate the system with a generator.

Ideal for load shedding and long term electricity savings.

Affordable Ownership Options

Outright purchase

Take the advantage of current tax legislation with an outright purchase and claim 100% depreciation of the system cost under Section 12B of the Income Tax Act.

You have the option to contract Gentricity to handle the maintenance and facilitate the insurance of your system.

Power purchase agreement (PPA)

A PPA is a contractual agreement between Gentricity and your business which enables you to buy 100% of our PV-produced electricity at a fixed tariff over a period, usually 20 years. Savings from day 1.
No capital outlay to the client, no ongoing maintenance costs involved.

Asset Finance
(With 12B Tax Benefit)

Partnering with some of SA’s major retail banks, the product offers the best of both worlds, with terms up to 10 years, the section 12B tax rebate, and without any capital outlay.
You have the option to contract Gentricity to handle the maintenance and facilitate the insurance of your system.

What is Section 12B?

Section 12B of the Income Tax Act provides for an accelerated capital allowance in respect assets owned and used by a taxpayer in the generation of electricity from amongst other solar energy.
