A cooperation with an experienced partner, such as Electron, enables Blockpower to not only implement, manufacture and supply solar and renewable energy systems, but custom manufacture, a lot of the components, allowing us to a quick turnaround time at cost-effective rates. Our energy solutions thereby become cost-effective, ensuring fast turnaround, and custom solutions for each of our customer’s energy needs.
No singular renewable energy project is the same and nor should a renewable energy system be an off the shelf solution. We, therefore, can provide tailored solutions for each customer’s specific need.
With the combined Expertise, BBEE Level, CIDB rating, SANS and ISO certifications, this Strategic Cooperation Agreement allows Blockpower to step into a very new realm. It, therefore, adds a lot more experience behind the products or solutions that are manufactured, as well as supporting projects, so that not only do we manufacture and install these systems, we are able to provide0020operation and maintenance of these solutions remotely to an extent and we also have maintenance on-site for the full service, offering a full from beginning to end reliability for our customers.
