SustainSolar provides containerised, modular, pre-installed solar systems equipped with top-quality solar PV modules and electronics including lithium-ion batteries for sustainable power generation. We implement South African design, engineering, assembly, fabrication, and commissioning to design our containers using world-class components, for the remote, demanding locations of our clients across Africa.

Our solutions offer multiple applications for mini-grids, mobile, and multipurpose installations:

  • Mini-Grids: Efficient transportation, rapid installation, and easy commissioning offer shorter timelines and lower implementation risk for mini-grid developers of hybrid or stand-alone systems for rural electrification, agricultural and commercial use, and mini utilities.
  • Mobile and modular installations: Containerised packages easily move from site to site and are therefore well suited for temporary off-grid power supply at remote construction sites, mining operations, defense and disaster management tasks and humanitarian applications.
  • Added essential services: Custom built solar container solutions can house off-grid water treatment and reverse osmosis plants, milk chillers, cold storage, clinics, offices, kiosks, and many more.
