Solar rental allows you to enjoy the benefits of solar energy without the upfront costs. You pay a fixed monthly fee for the solar equipment, while we take care of any maintenance and support that may arise
Once installation is completed we provide you with access to a monitoring app available on your mobile phone that allows you to track your system's production and performance in real time.
Installations typically take between 2 to 3 days to complete. Factors such as rain, complex roof types, system size and existing non-compliant electrical wiring can delay the installation beyond this time frame.
We will issue a certificate of compliance on completion of your installation. Our technical team will verify your home's existing state of compliance and issue a certificate in accordance with national regulations.
Inverters and batteries are typically installed undercover to protect from the elements and out of living spaces as cooling fans may be distracting. For smaller homes and apartments we offer inverters which are sleek and silent.
It's best to have a good idea of which electrical circuits you would like to have backed up during load shedding. Ensuring that you have strong Wi-Fi signal at the location that your inverter will be installed will allow us to quickly give you app access for your system.
During these times, your system automatically switches to grid electricity, ensuring uninterrupted power supply. In the event of load-shedding, your battery will provide backup power.
You can conveniently make payments via debit order by selecting your preferred debit order date.
Yes, we can claim tax incentives on your solar panels. Please speak to our solar consultants to help you structure to benefit from the tax incentives available.
There are no hidden costs associated with our solar rental packages. We provide transparent pricing on our quotations, so you always know where you stand.
Yes, with a Metrowatt solution, you can at any time expand your rental system by adding more panels and batteries to meet increased energy needs.
Solar panels typically have a lifespan of 25 years, and our rental agreement covers maintenance throughout this period.
No, we handle all maintenance and repairs as part of your rental agreement. You can relax while we ensure your system performs optimally.
We provide two payment options. For rental packages payments are monthly in advance. Alternatively, we offer an outright payment option with a once off cost.

Solar viability depends on factors like sunlight availability, roof orientation, and shading. Our solar consultants will help you to determine your property's solar potential
Solar energy reduces electricity bills, decreases reliance on fossil fuels, lowers carbon emissions and can increase property value. When paired with a backup battery solar can provide you with power during grid outages and load-shedding.
Solar panels contain solar cells that capture sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then converts this into alternating current (AC) electricity for use in your home.
Solar energy is generated by harnessing sunlight through photovoltaic (PV) panels to convert it into electricity. This clean and renewable energy source is eco-friendly and reduces your carbon footprint.
