South Africans are increasingly turning to photovoltaic (PV) solar to mitigate the effects of loadshedding. How do buyers ensure that they are getting a high-quality installation, especially with so many new players entering the market?

“It is all about experience,” says Svilen Voychev, chief executive officer of Valsa Trading, a specialist PV solar turnkey supplier since 2009. Valsa Trading is a proudly South African company and turnkey supplier of PV solar products as well as the largest local manufacturer of mounting solutions in the country.

3 types of mounting solutions

Mounting solutions fall into three general categories, ground-, roof- and carport-mounted solutions, with each engineered to ensure optimum performance, durability and flexibility.

  1. Ground-mount solutions: Ideal for clients with large open spaces. Can be installed quickly and easily on flat or sloping ground.
  2. Roof-mounted solutions: Designed to be installed on commercial and residential roofs in a range of configurations, including ballasted, attached, flat and elevated.
  3. Carport-mounted solutions: For clients who want to generate renewable energy from their carports or canopies.

Components are corrosion-resistant and robustly constructed to withstand the harshest weather conditions – mitigating damage to panels during storms, high winds or heavy snowfall. Solutions are available in a range of configurations that can be customised.

“We are proud to be able to offer our clients the best possible locally manufactured solutions that can help them overcome loadshedding, reducing their energy costs while doing their bit for the environment by lowering their carbon footprint,” Voychev concludes.
