Welcome to PDC Solar Geysers
Each hour the earth receives more energy than the world can use in a full year. Out of this abundance of incoming energy, South Africa has one of the highest levels of solar radiation in the world.
The solar radiation of South Africa ranges from around 1450 kWh/m2 to about 1950 kWh/m2 per year, compared to Europe which on average is 910kWh/m2 per year.
Todays technology allows us to use and convert this freely available resource to serve our energy needs, such as water heating.
Countries throughout the world are increasingly using solar energy. Areas that do not have nearly as much solar radiation as we do have high numbers of reliable solar water heaters in use. Countries such as Germany, Israel, Canada, the USA and even Namibia are striding ahead.
Worldwide solar water heating technology (solar geysers) is growing exponentially for a number of reasons, such as:
- an increased drive to cleaner energy production;
- a greater awareness of climate change and the issues around global warming;
- and importantly for the home owner, the increasing reliability and effectiveness of residential solar water heaters.
South Africa lags far behind, even though we have more sunshine than almost every other country!
PDC Solar Geysers now provides South Africans with an opportunity to take advantage of our country's abundant solar energy, and to make a cost-saving investment at the same time!
