GREEN CONSULTING SERVICES
Our highly skilled team works closely with our clients to achieve cost effective, reliable renewable energy systems. We are able to assist with design, sourcing, implementation and commissioning of off-
Summit offers pre and/or post installation power monitoring. Through the installation of electronic monitoring equipment we are able to analyse, profile and advise on current consumption patterns. With this knowledge we are able to recommend a solution and/or improved practices that will help you to achieve lower consumption rates and show you how to distribute your energy consumption within the best parameters for your specific tariff structure.
On site assessment by skilled dedicated Summit members will ensure carefully researched solutions defining the feasibility of client's requirement against economic and other constraints. Our products cover the alternate energy spectrum and include Solar PV, Solar Thermal, water heating, Solar Collectors, Waste to Energy, Biogas, Fireplaces, Solar Caravan, Solar Pool heating, LED, Wind Power, generators and much more. At Summit, we are not product aligned but committed to sourcing and testing the best products available to ensure we exceed the expectations of our valued clients. Let us help you find the best for your budget.
PROJECT FEASIBILITY STUDIES
When required, Summit will project manage your undertaking. This includes planning, risk management and mitigation, resource management, budgets and quality control. With a proven track record including domestic, agriculture, and international companies, we are confident we can deliver a quality solution on time and to budget.

CSIR MAIN CAMPUS, PTA
A study to evaluate the performance and efficiency of the Dual Axis Deger Tracker.
17 x Dual axis trackers. 15 Trackers fitted with Solar World 285W Mono modules and 2 trackers fitted with 270W Bisun modules. Each tracker is fitted with a STP 15000 inverter to allow for generation above STC.
Yield & Performance | The 202kW plant is generating between 1600 -
Hybrid Grid tied Solution on main ring for own consumption.
The Voortrekker Monument embarked on their renewable energy journey and became one of the first South African historical sites to install renewable energy at their premises.
Yield & Performance | The 3 x D100 dual axis Trackers were installed and integrated with the main ring of the Monument. The system is a 45kWp hybrid system that is connected to a hybrid inverter and battery, to sustain the standby requirement, with a generator and fuel saving functionality.

Presented here are some of our recent projects throughout South African soil.
“The Deger trackers, fitted with Maximum Light Detection (MLD) sensors tracks the sun and points the solar modules of the system toward the maximum energy point. The MLD sensors continually measures intensity and angle of the incoming light and moves the solar module system into the most advantageous position. The sensors not only takes the solar irradiation into account, but also light that is reflected off water or light-
What is important here: only those movements that will result in a direct yield increase are carried out. The average day length for the summer months in 2018 in Bloemfontein was 14 hours. As seen in the video the Deger D100 trackers started tracking at 05:15 using its MLD technology to find the first sunrays with the break of day. The tracker stopped tracking at 19:15 which gives you 14 hours of energy generation. The D100 can withstand 10m/s (36 km/h) windspeed on its 72 squares meter module surface – when the windspeed is higher than this the system will go into safety mode and position all the modules in a horizontal plane.
When in safety mode, the system can endure winds of 100km/h. You will see this happening at 16:29 and 17:50 when the windspeed reached a speed higher than 10m/s. This ensures that your system stays safe during high windspeeds.”
