Capex-free solar solutions for business

The SolarSaver group was founded with a view to offering clients a unique solar solution that doesn’t require them to put up any capital or financial guarantees. The concept has proven extremely popular and SolarSaver now runs the largest fleet of self-financed C&I solar installations in Southern Africa. The SolarSaver portfolio includes over 200 systems operated under long-term PPA and rent-to-own contracts across South Africa and Namibia. 


SolarSaver’s track record has attracted a number of well-respected investors and the group has access to substantial equity and debt capital for purposes of developing its solar rental portfolio. SolarSaver’s key equity shareholders include the Pembani Remgro Infrastructure Fund (PRIF), a US$302m private equity fund that focuses on infrastructure and energy-related investments in Africa, and Stimulus Investments Limited, a private equity fund managed by Ashburton Investments (part of the FirstRand Group). 

SolarSaver completes all its installations in-house, with engineering and installation teams in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban and Windhoek.

A unique partnership that drives service excellence

Sedgeley Energy is an experienced provider of customised solar solutions in the Namibian and South African markets. Solar-Saver was established in 2016 as a vehicle through which Sedgeley Energy and its new investment partners will continue to offer financing and long-term rental options for the installation of rooftop solar photovoltaic systems to corporate and commercial clients throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.

Sedgeley Energy is the exclusive technical services provider to the Solar-Saver group and is responsible for the ongoing administration and maintenance of the entire rental portfolio.



Our in-house design team, technology infrastructure and construction management experience will ensure your installation is perfectly customized and safely installed with minimal disruption to your business.


Your building can generate its own clean solar power at a lower cost than power sourced from the national grid. As grid rates continue to rise, your savings will grow every year. Don't miss out on the opportunity to lock in your electricity rates today.


Our clients can elect to buy the system from Solar-Saver in future at its original cost less depreciation. This gives you an opportunity to see the system in operation before deciding whether or not to buy the system outright (and keep all the savings for yourself).

Please note that SolarSaver's rent-to-own offering is limited to commercial and industrial clients only.

SolarSaver does not finance installations for private residences.
