The Business

ELECTRONETIX is a Close Corporation that offers alternative energy solutions with strategically placed solar panels. The system is constructed on frameworks and/or containers and the electricity generated is ample supply for eg. a police station.

The greatest barrier to entry in the solar electricity industry is the high upfront cost. Given the long life cycle of photovoltaic cells (about 30 years or more), a consumer installing photovoltaic (electric solar panels) essentially pays for 30 years of electricity upfront, rather than on a monthly incremental basis as one pays for plug-in electricity today. ELECTRONETIX covers the upfront costs, manages the installation, and offers a negotiable maintenance schedule.

The target market for the power purchase agreement consists of site-hosts that have large roof space, high sun exposure, and high electricity consumption. In South Africa, this market includes large offices such as the remote sites of the SAPS, agricultural environments and residential dwellings.

These customers already pay for high electricity rates and/or have absolutely no electricity. With the solar system some of the remote sites now have electricity for the first time since inception.

ELECTRONETIX personally visits your site to determine the power factor, harmonics and KVAR in order to compile the necessary audit. This information is utilised for the feasibility study and percentage savings of power and presented in the form of a graph.
