Powerstar South Africa, a distributor for market leading energy storage and voltage optimisation brand Powerstar, is currently saving Pick n Pay, South Africa’s second largest supermarket chain store on average over 8% in electricity costs across two of its stores.

The company, which is enjoying its largest period of growth since entering the market in 2010 has also provided solutions to Investec, Continental Cars and the Manhattan Hotel, which have saved 11.51 per cent, 13.6 per cent and 20.71 per cent in energy charges respectively.

The company has also recently signed an agreement with Rhino Lighting, which will see the roll out of technology-based power-saving solutions and products to companies based in the Eastern Cape Province, with the aim of significantly reducing electricity bills.

The partnerships we have entered are all with like-minded companies with the same goals, creating further cost savings for businesses.”

Alongside voltage optimisation technology, we are currently working together to launch our Virtue energy storage solution in the South African market.”
