How a SOLAR ELECTRIC geyser can save you BIG BUCKS

**Comparing GEYSER COST**

**NORMAL GEYSER vs SOLAR GEYSER**

Today, more than ever before, households are reeling under budgetary constraints. Tax is increasing the cost of even the most basic goods, Fuel prices are exorbitant, and Electricity is going to cost us even more.

**YOUR MOST COSTLY ELECTRICITY CONSUMERS ARE:**

- Your
**GEYSER**– this item alone can cost you up to**70% of your monthly electricity bil**l - An
**ELECTRIC STOVE**can cost you up to**50% of your bill** - Your
**AIR CONDITIONER**can use up to**35% of your bill**

** **LET’S DO **THE SUMS **FOR** THE NORMAL GEYSER**

A 150 litre geyser has a 3000-watt element. This draws 13 Amps of power. In 1 hour, this means your geyser has used 3 kWh of power or 3 units of electricity. The average power cost is R1.25 per unit (or kWh). The normal no timer control geyser will be using power for a family of 4 people up to 7 hours a single day. 3 hours in the day and 4 hours at night.

** **NOW: 7 hours per day for 30 days comes to 210 hours. At 3 units per hour, your geyser will cost you:

**3 units x 210 hours = 630 units at a cost of R1.25/unit – R787.50!!**

** **LET’S DO **THE SUMS** FOR **THE SOLAR ELECTRIC/**

**ELECTRIC GEYSER**

This has TWO elements in 1: 1 for SOLAR and 1 for ELECTRIC –

The ELECTRIC element is only 2000-watts and should, therefore, use 2 units per hour of power. **But a little bit of magic happens here** **– the hotter the element gets, the less power it uses! So, this element actually uses around 1.6 units per hour.**

Running for the same 7 hours for 30 days this geyser will use:

ONLY SOLAR power during the day, **at a cost of R0.00 per unit**.

**4 hours per night at 1.6 units per hour = 4 units per day. X 30 days = 120 units at R1.25 per unit = R150.00! **

**YOU SAVE: R787.50 – R150.00 = R637.50!!!!!!!!**
