An incredible solar electrification journey

Through our vision of "Lighting up Africa with renewable energy " and with over 20 000 DC microgrids developed and manufactured by a team of passionate individuals at Specialized Solar Systems, we are only now at the beginning stages of an incredible journey – both humbling and exciting – to bring sustainable, renewable, affordable, off-grid solar energy into some of the estimated 600 million non-electrified homes in Africa [source: World Bank]: fast-tracking job creation, infrastructure, communication, water pumping, education, entertainment, possibilities, hope …and a better standard of living for all.

Having designed and manufactured over 20 000 DC microgrids units which have been installed throughout Africa ranging from simple unmanaged solar systems to sophisticated remotely managed and monitored systems, Specialized Solar Systems has proven solar energy product offerings to fulfil almost any individuals or energy service provider’s energy requirements.

Kheis - A New Dawn - Video: Energy producing DC micro-grids are making a significant difference in many lives by supplying DC energy at the installed location to efficient DC powered appliances such as lights, television, cell phone charging, radios and more.

Using DC (direct current) technologies, rather than the more traditional AC (alternating current) ones, Specialized Solar Systems has been able to develop off-grid solar systems that are easy to install,  safe to use in shacks (no open flames), made to the highest safety and design specifications and are remotely manageable.

And because they are modular systems, they offer an incredible degree of design flexibility and threshold settings that can be adapted to the needs of any home or dwelling, or even any large-scale project such as the Kheis Project where Specialized Solar Systems is supplying DC micro-grid systems to the Kheis Municipality in the Northern Cape, South Africa.

The project aims to supply managed renewable energy and become a benchmark for the supply of basic human energy requirements that the rest of the world could follow.

The installed solar powered DC micro-grid systems are soft-managed by a web-based management platform, SSS-EPOWER  that was developed by Specialized Solar Systems for large-scale remotely manageable de-centalized solar energy supply.

The SSS20 dc micro-grid off-grid system used in the Kheis Project after a simple upgrade has the ability to further supply needed refrigeration.

The solar technologies supplied by Specialized Solar Systems for the Kheis Project include:

  • Smart solar energy producing DC micro-grids with remote managed hardware - SS20DC75 Managed.
  • Efficient DC appliances powered by the DC micro-grid systems.
  • Online Off-Grid Energy Management Utility with remote switching, payment facilitation, vendor management, solar system and end-user management services - SSS-EPOWER.
  • Product/service support.

'ǃKheis' is an administrative area in the ZF Mgcawu District of Northern Cape in South Africa. ǃKheis is a Khoi name meaning "a place where you live, or a home". The municipality is named in recognition of the Khoi people who were the first permanent dwellers of the area (source: Wikipedia).
