Frequently Asked Questions
There are 2 methods in assisting customers with determining a drill location, first there is the traditional diviner and second is the geohydrology approach with technology. The aim is to find the breaks running in a North-South and East-West direction and centering where both cross
- Borehole Drilling
- Infrastructure development
- Installation of Tanks, pumps, Filtration
- We let the borehole rest for a weeks after drilling
- Once rested we then yield the borehole and take a water sample. This takes approximately 5-7 days from Lab.
Solar power makes obvious sense, especially in South Africa. … Now solar is cheaper than Eskom although the initial investment is expensive and out of reach of most South Africans. To run the average SA family home a 5KW – 7KW system is required with multiple batteries for backups
According to the South African Department of Energy, “Most areas in South Africa average more than 2 500 hours of sunshine per year, with an average solar-radiation level range of between 4.5 and 6.5kWh/m2per day.” This, coupled with the solar revolution the world markets, as well as South Africa, are currently experiencing, represents a huge opportunity for the South African market to take advantage of!
Based on South Africa’s excellent radiation, you might be interested to look into solar PV. The best way to determine if solar PV is good for your business is to ask a series of a few simple questions:
- Are you based in an area with good irradiation (solar resource)? (If you’re in South Africa – that’s a yes!)
- Do you have a good quality, spacious roof or available open land near to your business?
- Do you use the bulk of your energy during the day?
- Are your reliant on diesel generators to keep your operation running during power cuts or because of lack of grid access?
If you answered “yes” to any two of the above, solar PV is definitely worth considering for your business.
