FAQs

How can I get wheeling for my business through SolarAfrica?

Simply reach out to our energy experts to start your journey here: https://solarafrica.com/contact/

What are my contract options?

We offer wheeling through a Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) with flexible tenors between 10 and 25 years.

I have multiple sites that my business needs to wheel power to. Do I need multiple VPPAs?

The great thing about VPPAs from SolarAfrica is flexibility and scalability. If, for instance, your business has multiple factories at different locations, you can sign one VPPA for your total consumption across all sites. The more your business grows, the more you can increase the total amount of power you need in your VPPA.

How does the billing work?

You’ll still receive your monthly bill from your electricity provider. On this bill, you’ll see a credited amount for the wheeled power you consumed. You’ll also receive a monthly bill from SolarAfrica, for your Virtual Power Purchase Agreement.

Do I need to have anything on my premises to wheel power to it?

No, wheeling is a fully offsite solution that doesn’t require any installation on your premises. There might be municipal or provincial restrictions depending on where your site is located.  

It’s important to note that we can wheel only to medium-voltage connections that are greater than 1 MVA. If you’re unsure about your connection point size or other requirements, please reach out to our energy experts who can help you: https://solarafrica.com/contact/. 

Do I have to commit to the same amount of wheeled power per month?

Our VPPAs stipulate the agreed amount of wheeled power you commit to per month. Not ready to commit to a set amount? Our energy experts can explain other options: https://solarafrica.com/contact/. 

Don't miss out on securing your wheeled power

There’s a set limit of national grid capacity that’s available for wheeled power. By signing a VPPA with SolarAfrica, you can rest assured that you’ll have access to wheeling for your business.
