SOLAR SHOP is an initiative from Electronic Techniques cc. Electronic Techniques cc was established in 2006 and initially concentrated it‘s efforts on the supply and installation of solar geysers, with the occasional solar electricity project coming up from time to time.
We were also present during the initial load shedding spate in 2008 and began supplying battery-based backup systems for small commercial and residential customers.
In 2013 we made the decision to no longer do solar geysers and to concentrate our efforts in the growing solar electricity market instead. This decision was due partly to the increased administrative load in handling ESKOM rebate documentation along with dropping profit margins and partly because our background has always been more in the electrical engineering space and less in the area of plumbing.
As time goes on, electricity is only going to get more expensive, so the sooner that one can start optimising equipment and systems at home, the better.
We design and supply solar photovoltaic solutions for residential and commercial customers. We work with qualified 3rd party installers to get you the correct solution at the right price.
Since every Watt of power generated via the sun comes with a price tag, solar electricity is not an area where sub-standard equipment can be utilised. We use only industry-leading panels, controllers, batteries and inverters to ensure that every possible Watt of power is extracted from your system.
SOLAR SHOP is part of the growing industry of on-line commerce. We don't have any physical stores and operate primarily on-line. Our business model is suited to those who are comfortable with internet commerce.
All our products are shipped to our customers using courier companies. Our products are primarliy shipped from our supplier warehouse in Randburg, with some of our inverters and batteries being shipped from Midrand.
It is possible to collect from these warehouses should you prefer to do that, but be advised that this a by arrangement only and no payments or transactions can be conducted on-site as these facilities are for despatch only. Furthermore ,your order once finalised will go into a despatch queue and there may be a days lead time before you can collect. It is generally more convenient to have your order delivered.
If you are a first time buyer, you often need to take a leap of faith when transacting on-line. We understand this all too well and as such can offer the following safeguards for first time buyers:
1) Payment via Payfast. This is a 3rd party service that provides middleman service between buyer and sellers and has a mulitude of checks in place to protect both buyers and sellers from fraudulent transactions. Check them out here: www.payfast.co.za
2) References are available. We have 100's of satisfied customers. If you are unsure about transacting, contact us for some references.
