How does the Customer benefit?

There is no doubt in any mind that load shedding has an enormous negative impact on the economy of South Africa. Not only are businesses and industries affected (resulting in revenue losses, job losses and all-over negative impact on the GDP), but the general public feels the effects every day.

The homeowner often seeks ways and advice on how to mitigate load shedding effects. Renewable energy, and specifically solar power, has become a household thing. Unfortunately, to find meaningful information, to identify the right components and to appoint a reliable and experienced solar installer, is not an easy task. With so many options available, how do you decide?

The Solar Marketplace (TSM) was born out of this dilemma. TSM is an exceptional multi-vendor platform that brings together buyers, sellers, installers, and enthusiasts of solar technology in one focused online marketplace.

Thank you Benjamin, this is really at the heart of what we trying to do. Even for me, a seasoned solar component searcher, it will help to have one place where you can find not only the components, but be able to compare them and get advise and expertise.
Absolutely brilliant site to look through.

Currently we know our Public service providers in South Africa are failing to meet demand, and potentially may completely fail in the future no matter whose hands it is in.

Not a homeowner myself, but I am looking to enter the home market place, and alongside setting up an independent water and sewage system, I am 100% looking towards Solar to be completely off grid.

Their YouTube channel from what I have seen also provides a lot of insight into the in's and out's of Solar. I also find it convenient that they are connected to trusted installers, especially when dealing with high voltage batteries in the home. I am not a fan of the idea, of having my house go up in flames, because I I got just anyone to install Solar for me.
Thank you Emma.
