“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

- Socrates

NeXEnergy is a solar photovoltaic energy solutions provider, specialising in the design, engineering, procurement and commissioning of solar PV energy projects.

We offer bespoke solutions to commercial, industrial and large agricultural sectors, with such tailored solutions designed based on understanding client needs & modelling accordingly.

We operate throughout South Africa and southern Africa.


Knowledge & experience

We benefit from more than 30 years of combined experience and knowledge in PV energy generation and energy storage solutions, with such experience ranging from rural installations to multi megawatt deployments.

Our solutions are designed, engineered and integrated according to the specific needs and applications required for each client. No two solutions are the same. They meet international best practices and standards, using only bankable Tier 1 products that are fit for purpose.

Critically, we design only for what is needed.

NeXEnergy is 52.85% black / 32.38% black women owned, BEE Level 2. 

Our solutions:  

  • Grid Tied Solar – allowing clients to create a hedge against rising utility costs by “fixing” a portion of the electricity bill for the next 25+ years
  • Grid interactive Hybrid Solar solutions – providing the best of both worlds, through maximising solar production and energy storage
  • Packaged Solar Power – PSP – purposely built containerised solutions for rural electrification applications (e.g. mini grids), creating power for health care clinics, remote education facilities, remote communities, etc
  • Long Duration Energy storage

Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs)

Lower your electricity costs -
with no capex investment

In conjunction with one of Europe’s leading developers and operators of solar assets, with over 1,350MW’s already delivered, we offer flexible PPA’s, whereby the client reduces their energy costs without any capex and avoids ongoing operations & maintenance responsibilities.

The flexibility of our PPA’s includes term (up to 25 years), negotiated terms and the option to purchase the asset at a predetermined price at a future date.

Long Duration Battery Storage

Where long duration battery storage solutions are required, NeXEnergy enjoys a very close relationship with a world leading vanadium redox flow battery manufacturer.

Innovative ground mounting system

All our solutions are bespoke and where ground mounted systems are appropriate, we utilise the best option for the specific location or project type.

Included in our range of potential ground mounting options, is a patented East-West orientation design that is a unique high-density ground mount system that produces up to 225% more land yield versus trackers and fixed tilt systems. The low profile 8-degree tilt design requires minimal spacing between modules, creating an ocean of solar panels.

Sale of Asset (S102)

The South African BEE codes (S102) provides for a company to qualify for black ownership if they sell an asset that they own to a black person/entity. This is regarded as deemed ownership to the company selling the asset in question.

In its simplest form, if a business is worth R10m and the asset sold is worth R2m, the business is able to claim 20% ownership without any change to its shareholding structure. To ensure that viable assets are sold, the original business will only receive its final ownership score/percentage after 3 years from selling the asset – however, such ownership will then vest in perpetuity.

Solar assets have proven to be particularly attractive for S102 transactions.

NeXEnergy enjoys close relationships with 2 of SA’s leading, national BEE solutions providers, designing and installing the solar assets.

Each project that NeXEnergy undertakes is unique and designed in partnership with the client, taking cognisance of the following:

  • Analysis of irradiance and energy yield

  • Selecting the most favourable sites

  • Systems sizing

  • Financial modelling

  • Detailed engineering

  • Installation and usage

  • Operation and maintenance

  • Monitoring and remote assistance

  • Assist with PPA or funded solutions
