How We Work

Utility Africa aims to make Solar Simple. In 6 easy steps, you will have the correct system for your energy requirements and method of payment.

Step 1

Obtain energy freedom

You can start by completing the information form.

Following this one of our Energy Engineers will contact you to request some additional information as needed and an initial proposal will be sent out.

Information form

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
Step 2

Site Evaluation, Design

Review the proposal from there.

One of our engineers have scheduled and concluded a site visit to collect detailed information, our design team will design the correct system for your requirements.

Our engineers will design a solar system package with your energy needs and your Home / Business / Farm / Estate’s, specifications in mind.

We work closely with you to design a solar PV system that exceeds your expectation and ensures maximum performance and lifespan of the total system.

Step 3

Determining the Best Way to Pay for Your Energy System

Utility Africa funding is registered with multiple funding and solar funders that offer solutions that fit every home or business owner. The three main funding options are:

  • Add the solar system expense to your existing home loan.
  • The solar system is funded between 75% and 100% and is paid back in monthly instalments for up to 7 years which is typically equal to the saving on your electrical bill.
  • Private Purchase Agreement (PPA) where Utility Africa funds the solar system and we supply the majority of your power but at the cost of 10% or less than Eskom or our Municipality kWh tariff.
Step 4

Permitting, Installation and commissioning

Once the design is finalised, our permitting technicians will complete and submit all the relative documents to the proper jurisdiction that supplies the properties (Eskom or municipal). The timeline depends on the jurisdiction and the size of the installation.

We handle the paperwork and ensure you are legal. One of our project managers will contact you to schedule installation in conjunction with the permitting process.

The solar system installation will be completed by our highly trained, safety-certificated crews, and the onsite project manager will be there to answer any questions you may have.

Typically: Take up to 2 days to 2 weeks. (The hand-in of permitting paperwork can take longer but depends)

Step 5


For the first two weeks our specialist team will review the performance of solar installation and optimize the system to optimize the battery usage.

A final inspection and project hand-over will take place after the performance has been confirmed.

Typically: Take up to 2 weeks

Step 6


We offer maintenance contracts to ensure that your full system is utilities and then automatically change the operating paraments for load-shedding.
