    Technipower, established in 1985, is recognised as one of the leader in alternative energy in southern Africa. The company offers an extensive range of products, for instance:
  • Solar powered streetlights which improves the standard of life and decreases crime.
  • Refrigerators and freezers manufactured to meet the most arduous conditions, requiring power for only 3-4 hours per day, with super insulation which retains the temperature for the remaining 24 hour period.
  • Ceiling fans made with do- it-yourself kits comprising solar module, battery, control unit, fan and wire.
  • Wire-less lighting with rechargeable lanterns. This system comprises a solar module, a charging station and the appropriate number of lanterns.
  • Thus, the fixing of light fittings and wiring are both eliminated.
  • Low cost lighting kits in various sizes, from a simple two light kit to a multiple light system with the facility to run a 12 volt black and white television set.
  • A home power solar system, easy to install which provides light and three 200volt AC socket outlets, which do not need a qualified electrician to install.
  • Battery chargers.
  • Solar water heating, starting from the 125 litre solar disk, which is easy to install and has been proven in the most arduous conditions.
  • Solar water pumps.
  • Wind generators. Although the sun does not shine at night, the wind can blow. Almost continuous charging can be obtained with a combination of solar and wind generators working together in a hybrid system, according to Technipower.
