GYFactory No Comments

Factory managers are actively seeking ways to reduce their energy demand and make their factory’s more energy efficient. The increased energy costs coupled with power outages and load shedding have prompted factory managers to explore ways to reduce their dependency on the national grid.

Heavy engineering typically uses mega power to run on a daily basis. This can be offset by electricity production in the form of a Photovoltaic Systems which can either be roof mounted or ground mounted. The electricity produced by the system is typically flexible by design and can directed to designated energy demand areas ensuring reliable supply regardless of load shedding or power cuts.

Tax Incentive:

In South Africa, a solar PV project automatically qualifies for a section 12B allowance. It allows a 50:30:20 write-off on the cost price of the equipment used to generate electricity and the owner of the equipment gets the deduction. The equipment must be used for business purposes to claim the deduction.

There is no size limitation or output requirement to claim the deduction for solar PV projects. The initial 50% deduction is claimed in the owner’s tax return when the equipment is brought into production and the remainder claimed in subsequent tax years. No application or pre-approval is required to claim the deduction.
