The first traceable use of the sun was when man used crystals to use the Sun's rays for starting fires.

We have used the sun (solar energy) to our advantage for thousands of years for growing food, heating food or water, making fire, electricity and alternative energy.  Man cannot live without the sun and on a chilly day, we will hunt for a spot within the sun.  Without the sun, our planet as we know it will become like Uranus.

The first recorded sun based dish was in 1767 by the inventor Soussare. He made an oval box that he protected and lined with glass. He put two small boxes inside and placed it in the Sun. The small box warmed to more than one hundred degrees Celsius. This may be presently alluded to as a diary bearing and was utilized at some stage in the eighteenth and nineteenth hundreds to examine what quantity of the Sun's heat might be harvested.

Today the solar industry is flourishing and is reworking our means of thinking and influencing our approach towards the matter of the ever spiralling electricity consumption and cost. With the results of world warming transforming into extra observable and along these lines the draining oil wells and coal mines, we tend to have gotten to be extra and more snared into renewable energy.

Solar geysers for a home was invented and are being used as alternative sustainable water heating for the common household.

A Solar Geyser on your roof today, shows you are conserving energy the natural way and are eco friendly minded.


With an Engineering background, the founding father of this company back in 1985 saw the void within the market and commenced importation and selling solar water heating systems in Cape Town to homeowners throughout the Western Cape.

The average electricity account then was only around R10 to R30 p/m and the thought of an account of R100p/m and above, was unconceivable. A number of these early days solar water heating units is still visible on roofs throughout the Western Cape today. These systems are also known as Solar geysers systems.

The design and contents of the modern solar water heating systems has improved and comprises of South African materials and all parts are factory-made in our country. The newcomer to our industry is the very economical and cost effective Heat Pumps . This route is for those people living in multi-storey buildings where access to the conventional geyser is difficult or placed in the basement. This design however far outweighs only using Eskom in providing hot water to your household but solar heating is still tops if there is roof where solar panels can be installed. The added advantage of a properly designed solar water heating system is that it requires no electricity except under extreme weather conditions and very little maintenance.

In early 1990’s, the need for cost effective pool heating for the homeowner was recognised and Solnet started with an imported product, solar heating panels, for swimming pools and spas. The results was spectacular and the industry grew into a lifestyle mode. Through research and development, the Solnet solar Pool Heating Panels, pool heaters for an individual Home, or for as we know it today, was developed especially for our harsh South African conditions.

The design had performance and longevity in mind and because of this factor, we can comfortably offer a ten year assurance on our product. Over the years, many copies of our pool heat pumps and pool heaters and swimming pool heating solar panels followed, but is falling short, time and time again. When you see an artist at work, in our case the manufacture and installation of alternative energy products, it looks simple until a novice or imitator attempts it.


We need the so called “jack of all trades” in our society but at Solnet, we took a stance to specialise in the field of water heating systems, swimming pool heating, swimming pool panels and pool heaters. Our products and services have evolved over the years and we are proud to be called the leaders in our field.  Providing warm and hot water to thousands of families, guest houses, hotels, municipalities and establishments in the Western Cape today. Solnet also export to foreign countries.
