Focusing on Solar Energy – Introducing Our New Solar Products
This entry was posted on September 10, 2013.
It may surprise you to know that 60 minutes of sunshine is enough to sustain and satisfy the global energy needs for an entire year. With spring here, and with the sun’s rays just stretching beyond the clouds, we need to start thinking about how to capture this energy and make it useable. As oil prices increase and concerns over environment degradation rise, harnessing solar energy is proving to be an energy alternate that deserves some serious consideration from every home owner.
Arriving just in time for the warmer weather, Sustainable.co.za has launched a new selection of great solar products that can be used in your home and garden, made even more efficient with the latest solar technologies.
MiSolar Light Range
We’re excited to introduce the Misolar light range, a new solar product that makes it easy to pep up your blooming garden, provides added security for your home and saves on outdoor or indoor lighting costs in and around the house. The Misolar light range included in solar lighting kits is unique in design and performance and has been specifically made for African conditions.
The miHome2 kit for example, comes with two LED lamps, a battery box and a 10W solar panel with bracket, various cell phone adaptors and extension cables for lamps. The box has two 12VDC output sockets for lights and one 5VDC USB output socket for cell phone charging. Manufactured in South Africa, the MiSolar light range is expandable and comes with a variety of lights to choose from.
ARTSolar Photovoltaic Module
