  • Ten Years of Dragon and Lion Dance

Dragon and lion dances are intended to bring luck and prosperity, a sentiment that’s very important to the Chinese people. The dances are widely seen during Chinese New Year celebrations, but can also be a key part of other events throughout the year.
The dance between our Solar product supply partners and our company has been remarkable for  the last 10 Years.

No Solar Company dreads incoming phone calls. Except the ones that begin with: ” I used Solar XYZ and then they went out of business and now I’m stuck with a system that doesn’t work. Can you help?” We empathize with the property owner who is reaching out to us and are starkly reminded of how competitive success in the Solar Industry remains. These calls are a constant reminder of how high the standard is to compete in the solar business and our journey to build the Soleil Africa brand as one that is synonymous with trust and confidence.

Soleil Africa was founded a decade ago as suppliers and installers for the Eskom Solar Water Heating Program. We at Soleil Africa have always put customer satisfaction first by getting it right the first time. We successfully installed 1500 SWH systems under this program. Getting it right the first time, encompasses the three guiding principles that enabled Soleil Africa to avoid the pitfalls that many conglomerates and start-up solar companies make.

1) Soleil Africa isn’t looking to sell our clients the cheapest solar installation, we’re looking to sell them the best solar installation.
2) Each property owner’s financial situation demands a customized solar solution from both an engineering and financial perspective.
3) Solar installers are Soleil Solar employees who are PV Green Card Certified. Soleil Solar is accountable for what happens from the day a client signs their contract to the day they get Permission To Operate (PTO) their system.

African nations have recorded extensive growth in recent years, with about 5 GW of PV capacity expected in 2022. South Africa is now leading the continent with about 1 GW of installations for 2022, followed by Egypt with 800 MW.
Non-Residential solar remains at a steady peak. Such a huge jump in solar consumption would lead many to conclude that this opened the doors for many solar companies to open their doors and thrive. Many solar provider’s doors opened, however, most companies did not thrive.

The high bar set for solar providers worked in the favor of skilled solar installers such as Soleil Africa. The rise of solar conglomerates proved to be a short-term spike because conglomerates were unable to deliver the quality and customer care that local providers such as Soleil Africa are able to provide. Most of the HVAC and roofing companies that added solar to their letterhead mast wound up failing because their focus on Solar Energy was secondary at best.

These business models failed to focus on the intricate nuances of the Solar Energy Industry in the same personalized manner that Soleil Africa delivers. As a result, these types of providers fail to deliver quality financing and installations to commercial, non-profit and residential property owners.

After a full decade of quality solar installations, Soleil Africa has grown into a leading South African Solar Provider for Commercial, Non-Profit and Residential Solar Projects. Soleil Solar boasts outstanding solar customer testimonials and a spotless record.

We continue to dance in tendam with our suppliers and we look forward to Soleil Africa growing to new heights, as the preffered Solar Product and Services Supplier in Africa.
