About Peco Power
Unveiling The Peco Power Story
Peco Power holds its roots in the humble halls of WITS University, where the technology was first developed in 2014 by Professor Willie Cronje and his team of post-graduate students. The aim was to create affordable, safe and reliable solutions to provide electricity for the poor communities in South Africa — to empower them and improve their quality of life.
The Peco Power systems entered the retail market in 2019 through partnering with Umbono Capital. Since then, Peco Power has unveiled the patented PowerBrick — a solar-powered mini-grid solution that is both affordable and easy to install. The PowerBrick is the ideal energy solution to service even the most remote communities in Africa. The modularity and expandability of the range of Peco Power products provide tailored energy and backup solutions for the domestic and small commercial sectors within the rural and township communities. Peco Power is currently the only “local-is-lekker” company that manufactures and produces an off-grid electrification solution in South Africa.
