While we are based in South Africa, we develop projects in all major African countries including remote areas offering full integration to existing grid or plant.

Traditionally, in Africa, solar farm development and construction has been carried out by foreign owned companies who are incentivised by their relevant governments. Foreign labour and components are used with the profits been repatriated to their respective countries. We strive for majority local shareholding in our projects, inviting institutions like state run pension funds to be equity partners.
