The Voltex Group strives to be at the forefront of technology developments and to harness its breadth of expertise to deliver the latest affordable, accessible and sustainable electrical innovations to its customers.

An area of energy efficiency that has advanced significantly in terms of cost of technology and ease of application, is solar power. By means of large scale consolidation in the production of solar panels, which are made from silicon, solar energy has become far more mainstream than 10 years ago.  Solar power is without doubt the most sustainable, clean and reliable form of renewable energy that can be used in several forms to help power your home or business. An increase in demand for sustainable energy solutions has been driven by a consciousness of the environment and a need for greener, more sustainable energy alternatives.

A complete green energy solution for electrical contractors

South Africa also has one of the highest solar irradiation levels in the world, so it goes without saying that the wise choice is to go green. With no moving parts, solar panels generate electricity directly from the sun’s rays and can last for up to 25 years. The cost of solar power is far more accessible with costs dropping significantly to approximately R1 per kWh compared to Eskom’s average domestic tariff, which has risen to R1.92 per kWh. Recognising this increased demand for complete solar systems, the Voltex Group has launched the Voltex Home Solar (VHS) Kit. This kit offers a complete solution for electrical contractors wishing to provide an efficient domestic installation and an affordable option for the homeowner.

Typically, a domestic installation requires an assessment to be done by the installer, who then designs the solar power solution. The challenge comes with sourcing the various pieces of equipment which are not always readily available at competitive prices. Ultimately, the client incurs the added costs of this time-consuming process.

The VHS Kits have been specifically designed to overcome many of these challenges, making Green Energy a reality for home owners. The kits provide an efficient method for electrical contractors to deliver accurate quotations by eliminating the variable costs of the components. The 5 kW VHS Kit comes complete with 15 x 265 W solar panels. This is enough to charge the battery and supply power to some of the equipment during the day. At night, the battery will supply power to the fridge, TV and lights for up to eight hours, thereby reducing demand from the current utility provider. In the event of a power failure, the system will continue to provide power from the battery as if there were a power supply from the current utility provider.

The VHS Kits come complete with everything required to provide a complete installation. Voltex supplies the backboard that is prewired with an inverter, ac breakers, transfer switch, dc fuses and a PV isolator. The prewired backboard greatly reduces installation time and allows for easy connection to the rest of the system.

The 5 kW VHS kit comprises:

  • 260 W tier 1 solar panel

  • Highest grade aluminium mounting structure

  • Pre-wired combiner box

  • 5 kW inverter pre-wired to battery fuses, PV isolator, ac breakers and transfer switch

  • WM4 male and female connectors

  • Solar cable

  • 4000 W LiFePO4 battery

The PV Modules, with power ratings ranging from at 265 Wp, come with a 10-year product guarantee and a 25-year performance guarantee. The high-performance Poly-Crystalline Modules are designed for on-grid and off-grid applications, with a positive power tolerance and highly reliable anti-reflective coated glass. TheVHS Kits are also available in standard 3 kW and 4 kW systems and can be custom made to suit individual requirements. Regardless of the solar requirements, Voltex has a variety of products to meet your project needs.
