Updates from SegenSolar: our year so far 

We are sure we will not be the first ones to say that we cannot believe that we are well into the second half of 2023 already. Time has passed so quickly — and a lot has happened since the start of the year.  

Whilst the most notable happening of the last eight months has undoubtedly been load-shedding, which has shot up and plummeted back down again since January, there have also been some interesting (and more inspiring) developments in the wider solar landscape. 

For example, South Africa’s efforts to diversify its energy infrastructure have risen, with the country’s renewable energy market predicted to reach 13.21GW by 2024 — more than double what it was two years prior.  

We have also been busy making changes here at SegenSolar, moving two of our sites to bigger and better facilities. And here is how both moves are changing our operations for the better… 

Relocating our Cape Town and West Rand sites 

At the start of April, we decided to begin running our Cape Town office and warehouse from a different location. Although the new site was located just 450 metres from the existing one (at 20 Flacon Crescent, Matroosfontein, Cape Town), it comes with countless benefits that have helped streamline customer experiences ever since we opened its doors. 


With plenty of parking spaces and multiple loading bays, collecting and packing up orders in Cape Town has never been easier. Plus, thanks to helpful security personnel at the new premises, installers can rest assured that their products are safe and secure the entire time they are on site. 

What’s more, the new site offers improved stock holding and, in turn, quicker turnaround times, allowing users to meet project deadlines — especially helpful as PV systems grow more popular across the country.  

An influx of positive reviews has flooded in over the five months that the new Cape Town site has been up and running, all of which commend its ample space and easy-to-find location. Team members from companies like GreenMatters Engineering, Solix Energy and R and D Energy have also praised the friendly staff who ensure efficiency at all times. 

Such great feedback makes us excited to see how installers have been getting on with our latest relocation, in which our West Rand office and warehouse moved 7 kilometres from the existing site to Unit 10B, Epsom Avenue, Northlands Production Park, Hoogland, Northriding, Randburg.   

We have every confidence in our ability to replicate the results of the Cape Town move and are thrilled to be taking this important step in our continued company improvement once again.
