Facing hippos and elephants while transporting solar equipment to remote safari lodges by boat and 4x4 became all in a day’s work for the SolarSaver team when they recently installed battery-solar off-grid systems at the remote Nambwa Tented Lodge and Kazile Island Lodge in Namibia for African Monarch Lodges. Both lodges now operate 100% off solar power 24 hours a day.

The commercial rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) market is growing rapidly in South Africa, with solar systems providing an ideal solution for commercial landlords looking to reduce both electricity costs and their carbon footprint, says Lance Green of SolarSaver. While the cost of installation has been prohibitively high in the past, SolarSaver has removed the need for capital investment through a unique rent-to-own model and is currently installing systems countrywide. Businesses pay only for the greener, less expensive energy produced.

With electricity costs increasing, solar energy efficiency for businesses is a low-risk investment which yields substantial rewards, particularly for high day-time energy users.  Manufacturing companies like Sheffield Manufacturing in Durban are increasingly turning to solar as a way to supplement energy needs, go green and bring costs down, says Lance Green of SolarSaver, a provider of customised rooftop solar photovoltaic solutions through a unique rent-to-own model.


KwaZulu-Natal is known for its beaches and sunshine, and local retail businesses are starting to take advantage of all those sunny days to generate their own electricity with a view to “going green” and to reducing their monthly electricity costs.  Mtuba Mall is a 17 200 square meter regional shopping centre situated 200 kilometres north of Durban. The mall’s owners have been keenly aware of the huge cost and greening benefits that could be achieved through harnessing solar energy. And now, thanks to SolarSaver, the mall is in a position to do just that. SolarSaver, a company that allows clients to install customised solar photovoltaic (PV) solution via a unique rent-to-own model, completed installation of a 1-megawatt (1MW) installation at the mall in July.
