ABOUT
THE BETTER ENERGY CHOICE

WHAT WE DO

We believe there’s a much smarter way to power our planet, today. We shake up the renewable energy space by offering affordable clean energy solutions through our funding platform.

By providing a solar energy alternative to existing grid energy, we make switching to a solar easy, with monthly savings.

Founded in 2011, our solar solutions are tailored for businesses and residential energy users in Southern Africa and large commercial & industrial sites in Africa. We fund and own the solar system to provide you with cheaper energy – no capital spend required

WHY WE DO IT

We’re passionate about making a tangible difference in the way energy is consumed.

More solar energy hits the earth in a day, than everyone on earth could use in 27 years. By offering easy access to alternative sources of cheaper and cleaner electricity, we can assist in making the planet a better place to live in.

Our vision

  • To be a leading solar energy enabler in Africa
  • To build simple energy solutions
  • To work smart
  • Positively impact the world around us

HOW WE DO IT

We specialise in bringing together our financial and technical expertise to offer customers cleaner energy solutions on a pay-for-use basis.

Because we own solar systems on behalf of our customers, our business is complementary to many players in the solar industry. We partner with approved solar companies, EPC contractors and developers who source, install, service and operate the solar systems that we own, finance and manage.
