We also offer solar systems to various institutions like schools, Health centres, clinics. These get soloar sytems which cater for various institutional needs. Solartoday enables institutions like schools to have flexible payment arrangement which allows them to make their installments on a termly basis. This ensures convenient acquisition of solar systems.
Solartoday recognises the fact that energy is an important driver of economic growth and the overall economic development. With this in mind, we provide business solar systems epecially in areas that are far away from grid extentions. Several small scale businesses have benefitted immensely in these systems especially in businesses like saloons, phone charging and Cinema.
Standard Solar Packages for business end users
3 x Lights, Radio, 18 Phones, 18 Shaves.
6 x Lights, Radio, 36 Shaves and 36 Phones.
Business systems can be aquired through installment plan provided by Solartoday payable in twelve months or through the microfinance partner institutions and banks.
Business systems too have a basic range from 100w to 200wp. However, a business customer whose needs are outside the basic blacket can as well be served through customized sizing. This is where by the customer gets the system tailored to his/ her needs.

Solartoday appreciates the need to harness nature and provide solutions to everyday life needs. We have a range of solar water heaters in varying shapes and sizes for both domestic and institutional customers.
The benefits of installing a solar water heating system in your home/business/institution are quite significant especially in the long term. As a matter of fact, in Africa where there is abundant sunshine, 70% - 90% of water heating costs can be saved by installing a solar water heater. Solar water heating systems too are eco friendly since they avoid the harmful greenhouse gas emissions associated with electricity production.
Research has shown that in a span of 20-years, a solar water heater can avoid more than 50 tons of carbon dioxide emissions. The water heating system if properly maintained can last between 25-30 years and its pay-back period ranges between 3-4years. The long term benefits will also manifest in reduced dependence on oil and other fossil fuels.
We apparently use direct or direct systems or else open or closed systems. An open system, also referred to as "direct" circulates the potable water through the collector. A closed system ("indirect") circulates a mixture of water and glycol through the collector and then transfers the heat to the potable water through a heat exchanger. A drain-back system allows water from the collector to drain back into a small tank to prevent water from freezing in the collector
A power backup system is an alternative source of electrical power readily available in case of power outages or electricity blackouts. Back-up power systems provide electricity to important loads or entire facility when the utility power grid is off. Back-up devices vary depending on the type of energy they are using to produce electricity. The most common is the battery/Inverter based backup system. For emergency backup power during typical power outages, battery-based systems represent a fairly simple and clean alternative.
The two basic components of battery-based storage systems are an inverter/charger and a set of DC batteries. The inverter/charger converts AC power from the grid to DC to charge the batteries. When power from the grid is lost, the inverter converts the DC battery power to AC in order to facilitate usage. The length of time that a battery-based storage system can provide emergency power to the home depends on its overall capacity and the type and number of appliances connected to the backup system. Battery-based systems are not designed to provide power over an extended length of time.
These systems are well suited to maintaining service to home- office electronics, light, and refrigerators. Other appliances, such as electric heaters, electric water heaters, stoves, and air conditioners would place a large demand on the system, and quickly deplete the batteries. Therefore, they are not good candidates for battery-based backup power. Potential owners need to identify which appliances will be supported by backup power and determine the load needed to accommodate them. The capacity of the system can then be sized to fit the needs identified by the owner.
