BOSCo has recently commissioned an energy centre in rural KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. The unique aspect of this centre is that it does not rely on the sale of petrol or Diesel.
The Highflats Energy Center (HEC)  sells a wide range of products, ranging from LPG to Gel fuel  and appliances linked to energy sources.
The HEC has a central store where all the products sold via the Coop members shops or homes which are located amongst the rural villages and homes. All purchases by the HEC are made directly from the energy manufacture, cutting out all the middlemen.  This allows the coop members to sell the products at very competitive prices right there where the customers are located. This means the customers save on taxi fares to get to town and they pay at prices lower than the shops in town charge.

Typical mini grid, hybrid wind and solar system

Large solar array tracking system

 Designed and manufactured in our Durban based factory

This tracking systems tracks the sun East to West even on overcast days, therefore ensuring the maximum output from the solar array. Up to 25% increase in energy output when compared to a static system.
Ideally suited for solar water pumping, telkom and other large scale solar systems.
Multiple tracking units can be coupled mechanically using a single drive system, reducing the cost of the installation
