Our aim is to be a leader in energy saving controls for the African rural, agricultural, domestic, commercial and industrial sectors. It is for this reason that VAC Solar aligns itself with reliable alternative energy saving solutions that optimise comfort for the user while minimising energy costs. By transforming the South African energy consumer to be less dependent on the current overstressed and unreliable power grid, our expertise can assist in reducing your carbon footprint and energy bills at the same time.
It is under this banner that we have formulated our business and service mission: To render an exceptional one stop supply and consultation service to our clients.
