What they do:
We offer energy consultation and Solar PV installation to township businesses.
About Inclusive PV:
Inclusive PV is a solar PV installer and consultancy firm aimed at providing access to renewable energy to small township-based businesses such as SPAZA shops, Social Clubs, Hair Salons, and Supermarkets, etc.
With the Western Cape moving towards its own power generation, it is clear that renewable energy is the future for South Africa. The increasing electricity tariffs put a strain on small businesses which results in less and fewer profits being made.
InclusivePV closes this gap and approaches the future of electricity in South Africa, particularly in small township businesses, and hence aims at improving the township economy.
