Africa Positioned for Alternative Energy Boom in South Africa


Solarcentry and Momentous Energy formed Solarcentury Africa, based in Johannesburg

Solarcentury, together with Momentous Energy, are pleased to announce the formation of Solarcentury Africa, a joint venture based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Solarcentury Africa will be working across the commercial roof, solar park and isolated grid markets, to meet the increasing energy demands of businesses across Southern Africa.

The new solar company benefits from Solarcentury’s 15 years’ experience as an international player in the solar industry, together with Momentous Energy’s local knowledge and expertise.

Solarcentury is one of the world’s most respected solar companies, with an enviable reputation earned through numerous high profile installations, including the internationally acclaimed and award winning, solar bridge at Blackfriars in London. Solarcentury’s experience is underpinned by a world class engineering team and continuous product innovation. Momentous Energy compliments the joint venture with its in-country knowledge and robust infrastructure; it is currently constructing one of the very first solar projects under the South African Department of Energy’s (DoE) Independent Power Producers (IPP) programme, with a 7MW solar park on a 19Ha farm in Rustenberg.

Solarcentury Africa is well positioned to offer the complete range of solar related services, from development and finance, through to EPC and monitoring support; a unique offering in the Southern African market.

Solarcentury Africa has already completed its first project – a roof installation for a large property company, and is also planning to install the biggest solar roof-top system in South Africa in the coming months.

Solarcentury has offices in the UK, Italy, The Netherlands and a growing presence in Africa and Latin America.
