  • Working with the efficient and professional team at Treetops was a great experience. There were some aspects of our solar installation that weren't straightforward (e.g. we needed to "downgrade" our electricity supply in order to avoid paying commercial tariffs) which required a lot of coordination with the City of CT. Treetops took care of everything. There was one day when the electrician spent 5 hours waiting for CoCT but Treetops didn't charge me a cent for that! The system works fantastically well. Thanks, Stefan and team.

  • I recently had the pleasure of using Treetop Solar for my solar panel installation, and the experience was exceptional. From start to finish, their service was great. The initial consultation was thorough, and the team took the time to assess my energy needs and explain the entire process. They provided a clear and competitive quote, making it easy for me to make an informed decision. The installation crew was efficient and professional. They completed the installation in a timely manner, and the quality of their work was evident. The sleek design of the solar panels added a modern touch to my home. What impressed me the most was the commitment to customer satisfaction. They followed up post-installation to ensure everything was functioning correctly and even provided tips on maximizing energy efficiency. The level of customer care demonstrated by Treetops sets them apart in the industry.

  • We have had our backup power system for a little over a month now with panels being installed soon. So far we are extremely happy with their service. Super neat, clean job on the installation and everything works as expected, but the most important for us is the comms. Their customer service has been 101% which is so important with something like your power supplier.

Our Battery and UPS Systems provide uninterrupted Power on a residential and industrial (several MVA) scale.

We take over the lead for every step of your way to Energy Independence and provide you with a hassle-free Turnkey experience.

1. Client Consultation

Every requirement for a Solar and Backup System is different. It depends on monthly electricity consumption, specialised appliances that need to be connected in a power outage and the level of convenience that is envisioned by each client.

We assess the overall electricity consumption habits, especially when designing Commercial Solar Systems, and make use of real-time monitoring to confirm our Design when necessary to ensure absolute accuracy and that all requirements of our clients are met.

Our qualified engineering consultants will discuss all options with you and ensure that all of your current and future requirements can be met. An important part of our philosophy is to build systems that can grow alongside your requirements.

2. Design & Client Approval

After our initial consultation we will use the information we have gathered to design your Solar System. With the input we have received from you we will create various options to meet your different requirements, like backup time, monthly cost-saving or a certain budget. Every option will be explained with their various pro’s and con’s so that you can make an educated decision about the best Solar System for your requirement.

Once we receive your feedback, we will adjust the designs until you are 100% satisfied that this is the perfect solution for you.

3. Detailed Planning & Project Acceptance

Once you have decided which Solar System is the right one for you, we will produce detailed 3D drawings of how your Solar System is going to be installed and integrated in your Home or Business. This also allows us to produce a detailed production forecast of how the system will perform on your specific address and the design you have chosen.

After approval of the final Design of your PV or Backup System, we will issue the final quotation for your project and are moving ahead with the Installation.

4. Installation & Registration with the Municipality

Our roof installation and electrical teams are fully qualified and specifically trained for the installation and commissioning of your Photovoltaic Equipment.

All of the components we are proposing to you are fully compliant with your Municipality and of the highest quality available in South Africa. This ensures that the application and registration process of your Solar System will be smooth and successful.

After the installation is complete, our teams check all connections and make sure the equipment is functional. The commissioning process usually takes only a couple of minutes. Once completed, your Solar System is fully operational and you will be Energy Independent.

We will train you to operate and read your new Equipment and make sure you feel comfortable.

6. Feedback, Remote Monitoring & After-Sales Service

We always strive to deliver outstanding Services and Products to our clients. It is very important to us to hear what went well and if there was anything we can improve on. You can find out what our clients say about us in our Guestbook!

All of our Solar Systems are equipped with Remote Monitoring and Control units. This enables us to take pro-active measures and ensure full functionality of your Solar System.

You will also have access to the Remote Monitoring, so you can check on your System Health from anywhere in the world.

It is very important to us that you are fully informed about what you can expect from your new system. We spend a lot of time during the consultation ensuring that we address all of your questions and feedback to fine-tune the final proposal for you. Investing this time with each client has made us one of the preferred partners for residential and commercial clients throughout Cape Town.

f.a.q. – Frequently Asked QUestions

How much does a Solar System in Cape Town cost?

Depending on how much Electricity you are using and at what time of the day you are using most of it, most people will require between 1kWp and 6kWp of Solar Panels.

When using only Solar Panels without Batteries, costs start at ZAR 29,000.00 incl. VAT for 1kWp of Solar Panels, fully installed and registered.

According to how much Electricity you are using at night, most people will be able to sustain their Electricity need for 1 day with a Lithium Battery of 5kWh to 20kWh.

When adding Batteries to your Solar Panels, costs start at ZAR 59,000.00 incl. VAT for 1kWp of Solar Panels and 2.5kWh of Lithium Batteries, fully installed and registered.

How much does it cost to install Solar panels in Cape Town?

The installation of Solar Panels in Cape Town is depending on the type of roof you have. Roof tiles are generally the most expensive structures to mount Solar Panels to, while metal roofs have proven to be the fastest and cheapest.

The number of Solar Panels is directly correlating to your Electricity Usage. Most people will be able to cover their daily electricity requirement with 1kWp to 6kWp of Solar Panels.

To install 1kWp of Solar Panels in Cape Town will cost approximately ZAR 29,000.00 incl. VAT, fully installed and registered.

Are Lithium Batteries cheaper than Lead-Acid Batteries?

Yes, Lithium Batteries are cheaper than Lead-Acid Batteries. 

Lithium Batteries are significantly more efficient than lead-acid batteries. Lead-acid looses over between 30% and 50% of the electricity you are charging into it, while Lithium looses only around 5%. This means that all of your other parts of your Solar System have to be twice the size to have the same output, as if you had installed a Lithium Battery.

Additionally, Lead-Acid Batteries can only be discharged by 30%, while Lithium can be discharged by over 80%. This means that you need to buy a lot more Lead-Acid Batteries to store and use the same Electricity.

Do you offer Solar System FInance / PV Renting in Cape Town?

Treetops offers Solar System Finance (also PV Renting) in Cape Town. 

For now our offering is limited to commercial, industrial and agricultural clients.

However, we are actively pursuing possibilities to offer an affordable financing option for Homes and Houses, to enable everyone to benefit from Solar Power in Cape Town.

How much Solar Power do I need in Cape Town?

That depends on how much Electricity you are using every month. 1kWp of Solar Power in Cape Town produces between 1,400kWh and 1,700kWh per annum, depending on roof angle, technology and skill level of your Turnkey Integrator.

Most households will cover their annual Electricity needs with a 1kWp to 6kWp of Solar Power.

How much does Solar Power in Cape Town cost?

Solar Power in Cape Town is not expensive. 1kWp of Solar Power, without using Batteries, can be installed and registered for as little as R29,000.00 incl. VAT with Treetops.

If you would like to add Lithium Batteries to your Solar Power System, you can install and register a 1kWp Solar System with a 2.5kWh Battery for as little as R59,000.00 incl. VAT.
