Solar heating is also commonly referred to as solar water heating, largely because it is used to heat water for washing and showering and to generate electricity. In South Africa, which is blessed by prevalent sunshine, solar water heating can provide up to 80% of hot water energy needs and significantly reduce electricity bills.

A primary concern regarding the installation of solar heating systems is cost. Previously, the costs of solar energy were prohibitively high, but with technological advancements and an increasing awareness of the need to alleviate dependence on commercial energy sources, the average price of a solar heating system has decreased dramatically.
Studies have proven that solar heating systems have a payback time of 4-8 years, which may seem like a long time, until you consider what those savings mean to your monthly expenditure.
