South Africa has one of the highest lightning strike densities in the world and experiences more than 60 thunderstorm days per year with an average of 10 to 15 strikes per square km. You are four times more likely to be killed by lightning in South Africa than anywhere else in the world.

Statistics show 80% of damages on electrical and electronic equipment are directly or indirectly related to lightning and over-voltage surges, while the majority of damages are caused due to indirect lightning strikes nearby (Source: United Business Solutions)

It is a common misunderstanding that a UPS will provide sufficient Lightning and Surge Protection. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. While some UPS’s do provide a degree of isolation and surge filtering, this is mostly for internal protection and rated well below the voltages experienced from lightning strikes.

Solar Electric Africa provides surge protection solutions for AC, DC, photovoltaic solar systems and telecommunication systems.
