Who we are

We are three entrepreneurs with a long track record in energy, sustainability and marketing, sharing a love for Southern Africa and a passion for making the world a better place.

We started with a simple goal – to save customers money by selling cheap, clean energy, improving the world we live in one roof at a time.

Energy in South Africa is expensive and dirty, and cleaner alternatives are typically expensive and complicated. We are on a mission to make it easy and cheap for South African businesses to buy clean electricity, building a company that values long-term customer relationships and service that is fair, honest, transparent and reliable.
