In short: we are a family-run and solutions-focused renewable energy solutions provider, incorporating everything from software development to systems installations. Our clients include the Construction and Mining Industries, Farmers and wider Agricultural Concerns, Conservation and Off-Grid Wilderness Entities, as well as the Hospitality and Travel Sector.
Established in 2013 by current MD, Machiel Marais, reNRG initially focused on developing and installing smart metering systems, but soon expanded into refining and developing the software controlling vast government installations. Organic growth has seen the company shift focus into renewable energy, specifically within the agriculture and building sectors.
Unlike many competitor companies within the ‘green industry’, reNRG will not be trying to re-invent the wheel. We’ll instead source existing concepts with a view to integrate these into our own technology, while simultaneously incorporating contemporary, cutting edge solutions which have been tried and tested within the global industry sector.
Our vision is to reIMAGINE these concepts and to engineer them so they can specifically be applied within a broader African context. Rugged componentry, ability to withstand the elements, the ‘KISS’ Principle, ease of upkeep, off-grid maintenance protocols, surviving extreme climatic conditions, consistent power grid failures, locally manufactured parts to limit down-time … these are all key aspects ensuring long-term success in South Africa.
Our App – based on industry leading information technology – stands as the touchstone to our skills set, and this intellectual capital is what sets us apart from the competition. Using this technological advantage, we guarantee you that we will save you more money than we cost you, thus reducing overall expenditure, all while increasing operational efficiency.
