There is so much research that needs to be done before embarking on the somewhat treacherous journey of finding the truth. I find so much misinformation and sadly clients are exposed with no right to recourse after a poor installation is done. We have found the most horrifying installations by 'q...

Ground breaking this might not be, but solar panels only work during the day. The batteries store the energy for night time use, not the solar panels. :)

Welcome! Welkom! 😀

The Solar Power Cafe is the official outlet for Waelga ™ 🌍🌞A unique, South African designed hybrid solar power system for the domestic market. We specialise in installations upto 300kVA.

Highly qualified in our respective fields, we are a dynamic father and daughter management team. Michelle achieved her first RE qualification as of July 2020 as an Energy Transformation Expert and has completed qualification number 2 as Co-Benefits specialist in Renewable Energy, with Renac in Berlin, Germany.  🤓

We offer:
Quiet, fully automated Back-up power  for your home or business when electricity outages occur. 💡
Advanced Solar Power system that allows you to save on your monthly electricity bill. 🌞

A family owned business started in 2014 in Pretoria East by an innovative electrical technologist with over 30 years experience in the petrochemical, nuclear, mining and power generation fields, he has a keen interest in safety and working according to standards and specifications. 

More than 4 years of dedicated design, prototype production and testing of the technology with his own funds, have brought us to Waelga ™ and The Solar Power Cafe.

The Product
Investing in a Waelga   system offers the following benefits to you as the owner of a home or business🏡🏭

Intrinsically safe design. Waelga is designed with 3 layers of protection to ensure your equipment, appliances and home are not at risk of damage during power outages and when the electricity returns. 🔌🔋💡☑

Using solar power means you generate your own power during the day. You can use it to power the washing machine, vacuum cleaner, swimming pool pump, plug points, a TV etc. We can help you choose the loads best suited to run off dedicated solar during the day. 

This is dependent on the amount of sunshine available and the size of the installation. We start at a minimum of 4kWp for the solar panel array, this produces at least 20kWh on a full sunshine day. 🌞 

For business owners, we ensure that your work day is uninterrupted and no production losses are incurred due to power outages. The computer network, internet connection, printing, motors, fans, pumps and other essential electrical loads to your business can be run off solar power during the day.   

An aesthetically pleasing design that is not unsightly in your home or place of business.🙌👏

Professional after-sales service. We firmly  believe in maintaining long term relationships with our clients and 'staying in touch' after your installation has been completed.📱✋
