Renewable energy lights up southern Africa


ePower Holdings is looking to partner with like-minded investors in the energy sector who are committed to creating opportunities for entrepreneurs in the rural markets of South Africa and the rest of Africa. As a specialty provider and integrator of renewable energy systems designed for developing communities, the company has positioned itself to capitalise on this trend and has established a number of renewable energy projects in South Africa to empower underdeveloped communities. In informal settlements in Gauteng such as Mooiplaas, just outside of Centurion as well as Soshanguve in Pretoria, the company has introduced affordable electricity solutions in the form of a solar powered community centre set-up on a 40-foot container where services such as mobile phone battery charging, free WiFi connectivity, and internet browsing are available to the public. The company rolled out three containers last year, two in South Africa (Mooiplaas and Soshanguve) and one in Zambia. Five more are planned for Botswana during the first quarter of 2017 and another for Namibia.
