Setting it up
Sunday night 7pm and the kids are glued to their iPads, in the dark. We were caught unawares, and a loadshedding spree from 7 to 9:30 left us without supper, television and light. Luckily the iPads were charged. Ironically we were all set to watch Carte Blanche as there was a piece on kids and technology and what the long term effects were. Instead, we handed over the iPads to the two young ones, lit some candles, put our headlamps on and considered our options for dinner. We weren’t too fussed, as tomorrow was our installation.
When the Genergy team arrived I was happy to tell them all about my loadshedding experience the night before. They smiled, as they had heard it all before. Most of the people on the team had their own little systems in place, with a Photovoltaic panel or two in place, as well as an inverter. Mine was to be a 5kW inverter with a 3.6kwh battery bank, including two photovoltaic panels with micro inverters. Read more about it here https://genergy.co.za/computer-says-no/
