ABOUT US

corner-red.png

With solar energy being the cheapest source of new power generation worldwide and local electricity costs at their highest point in history, the time to procure a solar system to supply cost-saving clean power is now. The procurement of solar systems from private sources is, however, becoming an increasingly complex process, with new technologies, changing legislation and a variety of potential suppliers.

 

SOLINK is a specialised solar consultancy that will take the complexity, time and risk out of procuring solar power. By using our extensive solar engineering, construction and financing experience as well as local market knowledge we will independently assist clients to get the highest quality and most cost-effective systems for their requirements.
