Cape Solar Installers were commissioned by Condor Solar, in conjunction with Future Comfort, to install 5 x 150 litre SolarMAX retrofit solar geysers as part of a single Solar Water Heating System at a guesthouse in Tamboerskloof, Cape Town.
The Kwikot Solar Geysers were retrofitted to allow for the new water heating system to work with flat plate Solar Collectors on the roof of the guesthouse.
The installation was completed in 1 day, even allowing for small modifications that were required.
Solar water heating installations are an absolute necessity for all guesthouses, bed & breakfasts, and hotel accommodation especially since huge volumes of hot water can be delivered cheaply and efficiently by Solar Geysers.
3 forms of saving were achieved with this solar hot water installation:
- The City of Cape Town offers a standard rebate
- Eskom offers an additional substantial rebate as part of its solar water heating rebate program
- Being able to retrofit the Kwikot Geysers meant that these geysers did not need replacing.
Solar water heating is a capital investment that is recouped within 3 years.
