IBC SOLAR South Africa awards Premium Partners at their year-end functions for specific customers 

Johannesburg / Cape Town, December 2020 – IBC SOLAR South Africa, subsidiary of IBC SOLAR AG, a global leader in photovoltaic (PV) systems and energy storage has awarded their Premium Partners 2020 at year-end functions. The partners were honored amongst others with the awards “installers of the year” and “project of the year”. 

During events held at two outside venues in Johannesburg and Cape Town, in-line with COVID regulations, Daniel Haitzler, Managing Director of IBC SOLAR South Africa, awarded its best system clients with Premium Partner Certificates for loyalty and great work. It is now the second year in a row, that IBC SOLAR SA has awarded system partners for their excellent SOLAR PV installations. “An IBC SOLAR Premium Partner is not only assessed by a certain level of sales volume but by the number of complete systems and the frequency of business interactions with us throughout the year. The success comes from partnership and that is what we are targeting with our clients to build a win-win relationship for all of us”, Haitzler points out. “Our Premium Partners are exactly that”.

In addition to the Premium Partner Certificates, the clients Daisy Energy in cooperation with Bespoke Energy won the Award “Project of the Year South Africa”. In a joint effort, the two companies installed and commissioned a 60kWp plant and a 259kWh Microgrid. The solar part is managed by three Fronius Symo 20 inverter, connected to six Victron Quattro 10 with a Solar MD Li-Iron battery bank to providing 60 kVA of power output. The project was installed with most DC components coming from IBC SOLAR and commissioned flawlessly in an extremely confined space. In addition, it presents an outlook for the future, how to power Africa in a sustainable and self-sufficient manner.

The “Installer of the Year Awards" went to Ultimate Solar for Gauteng and Windstrom for the Western Cape. Both customers have come a long way with IBC SOLAR and are both highly skilled and experts in their field. They have installed and commissioned numerous systems by using the whole range of IBC SOLAR’s product portfolio.

Furthermore, the long-standing clients Solsquare in Namibia, Synergy Contracting in Zambia and Renewvia Kenya were awarded with the “Installer of the Year Awards” as customers in the export markets. Even during the very challenging year of 2020, IBC SOLAR South Africa managed to grow their track record and further strengthen their market position in the Sub-Saharan region.
