Durban Based Company Unveils New Solar Panels
SmashSolar Inc based in Richmond near Durban in Kwazulu-Natal has unveiled a new generation of solar panels. One of the key advantages is the ease of install which Smash Solar says can drastically reduce the time taken to do a roof installation.
Traditional solar panels need a roof mount to be professionally attached before the panels can be mounted. The new design allows for even an untrained contractor to install the panels with very little training in about half the time. The company launched the product at the Solar Power International conference in September. The conference took place in Las Vegas and is North America’s largest solar power trade show.
The solar industry in South Africa and Kwa-Zulu Natal is really taking off. Solar Geyser company in Durban, SunPower, recently set-up offices in Richmond and there are many new entrants into the arena including KZNSolar, Solaray and SmashSolar.
