Already established as a global player in solar project development, even though the company was only founded three years ago, it is the mission of Soventix to find solutions for anyone who wishes to harness the sun’s energy, save on their electricity bill and create a liveable and sustainable environment for future generations.
To this end, Soventix has already completed well over 2 000 projects worldwide, using its expertise to find the ideal solution for each customer – from domestic roof installations to commercial and industrial solutions, solar carport integration and utility-scale solar farms.
The company was founded in Germany during April 2010, after which the first large-scale solar installations were quickly realised in close cooperation with project partners, and the number of projects has grown rapidly. In the year after it was founded, Soventix had already become one of the leading companies in the industry. After its successful beginnings, the decision was taken to grow the young company even further, and the team has been expanded to include experienced photovoltaic experts, who together bring over 200 years of experience in the industry. Last year, Soventix established three new subsidiaries to strengthen its international presence and as a means to react more flexibly to market changes in Germany. An office was opened in Cape Town in March 2012, which has already finished several solar projects successfully. Other subsidiaries were founded in Romania and Ukraine. As the power of the sun has the capacity to exceed humanity’s energy needs many times, solar energy is already providing an important contribution to the electricity supply. This contribution will continue to increase rapidly in the coming years, both at home and globally. The applications that can be used to benefit from the sun are extremely diverse – from small- and medium-sized systems on private rooftops or buildings to large solar power plants in open areas. Each of these systems will need a competent partner who knows exactly what he is doing. Soventix is such a partner. With Soventix clients are using the potential of the sun efficiently and effectively, ensuring that their solar power system brings the yields that they expect. Soventix customers will receive a complete turnkey solution, from the concept stage to the planning, construction and operation of the system, and with a single point of contact clients have the guarantee that they are in touch with every detail throughout all phases of the project.
As each project is as unique as the client it is designed for, they also take great care in calculating the specific layout and yield data to ensure that the system always achieves the maximum efficiency, thereby maximising the return on investment.
With a huge annual rate of solar radiation, South Africa has unparalleled potential for renewable energy, and Soventix believes that photovoltaic (PV) modules are the most effective way to produce clean energy at minimum costs.
Wherever there is a need for electricity, solar energy can be adapted to suit the application, from off-grid solar water pumping systems and remote area electrification, to grid-connected energy supplementation – the possibilities are endless.
Although most systems are paid for at one’s own cost, Soventix can offer to build a solar system on a client’s land that doesn’t cost him a single rand.
Obviously, there are certain criteria that need to be met, but in essence clients can benefit from either a regular leasing income or from a power purchase agreement, to benefit from the use of solar energy at a price below that of Eskom.
Eskom has tabled an average tariff increase of 8% for the next five years, effectively taking the cost of power to R0,85kWh by 2018, so it is very worthwhile to consider the photovoltaic solutions from Soventix.
Whatever type of photovoltaic project is envisaged, Soventix can provide the best support. Financial investors receive turnkey projects from them as excellent investment options. Owners of rooftops and open areas can let them plan the entire project or receive support in only some areas – for example, in technical design or FIT application, and they assist project development partners in the implementation of their projects. Every day, the sun provides 10 000 times more energy than the entire population of the world can use. Get your share by switching on with Soventix! Talk to the experts.
