SDA is proud of its record and leadership role in the development of the solar water heating industry in Southern Africa. Since inception in 2009 the company has supplied thousands of solar water heaters nationally and has supported 100’s of plumbers in the development of solar skills. Additionally we have been responsible for the sourcing, installation and commissioning of thousands more low pressure solar water systems for various solar water system mass roll outs in the Western Cape and Gauteng. During these projects we have trained in excess of 450 local people in basic plumbing and solar installation techniques.
There are two core elements to our solar business – the supply of solar water heating technology to commercial developers, builders and resellers and turnkey contracts delivery to government, state-owned enterprises and municipalities.
