Why the product was created

shs-whyWhy we created the Solar Home System

The founders of Solarworks!, Arnoud van Vroomen and Bernard Hulshof, recognised the need for cost-effective, accessible power for the millions of so-called "low cost" dwellings being built to cater to the housing requirements of newly urbanised populations around the world. They began their research by interviewing companies involved in this type of construction and discovered that most low-cost dwellings are between 30 and 60 m2 with two bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen-cum-living room, and a bathroom. A logical but very simple question followed: “What would your ideal system look like if you want to provide lighting and basic charging power?” The result is the Solar Home System.

What makes it different

What makes the Solar Home System different

The Solar Home System uses cost-effective solar energy as its primary source of power and uses the sun whenever it can. When there is not enough sunlight it can be connected to a car battery or to mains power using an AC adaptor or battery clamps and will scan for these secondary sources. The system charges quickly – it takes only five hours in full sunlight – and typically lasts about three nights.

Each of the five lights included in the system is operated using independent switches that can be installed to suit your individual preferences. The system's flexibility is enhanced by its stylish components which are designed to complement your living space. 

What our clients say

shs-sayWhat our clients say

“Our lives have changed so much since we installed the SolarWorks! Home system. Since we do not have access to the grid, we need alternative power. Now our house has lights so the children can do their homework, and we can see what we are doing without the smell of kerosene. I love having switches and the fact that I have light in the bathroom! I am proud of my house.”

“We installed the SolarWorks Home System in our house to cope with load shedding. The lights are beautiful and stylish and complement our modern decor. My wife is really happy that  she can charge her iPhone even when there is no power.”
