Twitter user @SongezoZibi took to social media to share an amazing story about a black-owned company which is taking people off the grid by installing solar power solutions.
He revealed that he decided to bite the bullet and installed solar power, with Empower Homes taking care of the heavy lifting and technical stuff.
He was very satisfied and said that the installation was quick and painless.
Here is his full post:
"I finally took the plunge and installed solar power. Empowered Homes is 100% black and youth-owned. Smart guys. They were very patient with my 6-months indecision and very quick with installation. Contact details on the black battery box on the floor."
Here are some reactions to the inspiring post:
"Wow, it looks very appealing even by just looking at it. Very good job right there, I'll definitely contact them for a quote."
"We do a range of systems which are partially off-grid/ grid-tied and ensure that the solar covers most of your energy needs during the day. We use lithium-ion batteries and happy to scope a solution which can then give you a good sense for your customized price."
"Best move ever. I will contact you when I am ready to go off-grid."
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Benathi Makiyela is an ambitious young man with both a passion and natural talent for creating something out of nothing. The young South African student and entrepreneur has opened up with Briefly.co.za about his successful tyre recycling business.
"I started recycling tyres in 2017 with my friend Malwande Prince Mgotywa, who has since moved on to start his own company while I have since formally registered my company this year, he explains.
Benathi then goes on to explain how he was faced with a number of troubles with getting his tyre recycling business off the ground and on to the right and successful path. Juggling school and the business, finding the right team, and marketing his business on a broad spectrum are just a few of the issues he was faced with.
