Zonke Energy was founded in 2017 with a mission to deliver clean and affordable energy to informal settlements. Most of our customers could spend over R400 per month on dirty, poor quality fuels such as paraffin and petrol for generators. They must also contend with dangerous and unreliable informal grid connections.
That’s why we set out to create a new way to deliver power. Our modular mini-grids serve up to 16 households with affordable, reliable, safe and clean energy. We power lights, mobile phones, TVs, refrigerators and much more from a central power hub. Our pre-paid metering platform brings it all together, making payments and monitoring a snap, so our customers can seamlessly enjoy the benefits of clean energy.
