Imagine creating a passive income and helping the environment all at the same time. The green revolution is opening up all kinds of possibilities. It is now possible for landlords and property owners to become competition to Eskom. If certain elements and criteria can be meet on specific properties it is possible for a solar energy plant to be installed on the roof. This would include enough space, orientation, the pitch of the roof as well as structural integrity. The landlord or property owner would then be able to supply electricity to his tenants. He can then bill the tenant monthly for electricity usage. A system such as this could be paid off in under 8 years and may generate a substantial income for 25 years. Not only would this result in lower energy costs for tenants but also improved energy security.
Now you can actually start to put your roof to good use!
