WiSolar, the pan-African solar electricity company and South African Teak Place Estate have struck a partnership that will see the former deploy its electricity skills to provide solar power in the homes being developed by the latter.
WiSolar is expected to provide its award winning solar electricity pack to homes in Teak Place Estate as they are built.
This will come as an added value addition for buyers of the apartments as they will be assured of off-grid solar electricity set-up ready for use as soon as they move in.
The partnership also underscores WiSolar’s mission to provide solar electricity for everyone.
