As per a recent report by TechSci Research titled “South Africa Rooftop Solar Market- Regional Analysis, Competition, Forecast, and Opportunities by 2028,” the South African rooftop solar market is poised for remarkable growth with an impressive Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR). This growth is attributed to the escalating adoption of renewable energy sources for electricity generation and the abundant availability of solar energy during daylight hours. End-users stand to shield their investments in rooftop solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems against volatile electricity costs, given the quantifiable nature of the electricity produced by photovoltaics, enabling sectors to estimate their electricity generation costs for the next decade. This trend is expected to positively impact the market environment throughout the forecast period.

Although utility-scale solar PV projects are prevalent in South Africa, small-scale rooftop solar PV systems play a pivotal role in the examined market. These systems extend contemporary electricity services to households lacking electricity access, contributing to reducing electricity costs in remote areas and islands dependent on oil-fired generation. Simultaneously, they empower homeowners and small businesses to generate their electricity.
