Energy auditing and consulting
Knowledge is power and knowledge of where your power is going can save you a lot of money. The importance of understanding where your electricity gets used and which devices are using the most power shows where there are opportunities for you to save on your monthly bill. Getting a handle on your electricity usage is easy.
Using a multi-port-power-monitor (MPPM), One Energy will reveal the usage on each individual circuit in your premises. The MPPM report will identify when and for how long different circuits draw power. This will highlight power usage issues such as a pool pump timers that have been set incorrectly, or more serious issues such as a borehole pump that is running under high load due to partially seized bearings. The report will also quantify exactly how much certain equipment costs to run each month.
Understanding power usage at your home or business can give you opportunities to introduce electricity savings. You can see when and what your peak demand is and reduce this by setting timers or changing usage patterns. With the MPPM being able to monitor up to 30 circuits at a time the reports are comprehensive and accurate. These reports record invaluable information which will help you save money.

Installations and project management
We only supply and install products that have a proven track record and are backed by tier 1 manufacturers with the financial backing to honour all product guarantees and warranty claims.
All our installations are supported with online installation reports and photographs, provide a detailed record of every aspect of the installation and project. These installation reports are crucial for us to keep quality control over our national franchise base over and above the industry standard COCs required for electrical and plumbing installations.
All One Energy installers have extensive product and technical training. We are currently also the only renewable franchise in the country that has made it mandatory for the entire group network to undergo occupational health, safety and compliance training through Complyworks, which means that all our clients, whether individuals or large corporates, know that they are dealing with an organisation that takes the safety and risk management of all installations to the highest levels.
One Energy’s South African footprint allows us to facilitate national renewable energy projects for companies who want a standardised installation and national roll out across all their operations. One Energy has a project management and engineering team for Commercial and Industrial projects.
Many people believe renewable energy is too expensive without actually doing their homework. When we take them through the costs versus the savings, most are stunned at how absolutely affordable it is. The initial upfront cost is the only cost involved with solar and it can be financed.
Many people put off making the switch to alternative energy sources because they don’t have the upfront cash. That’s why One Energy offers you competitive finance options. With every Eskom increase that comes each year, you’ll be saving more and more and protecting your pocket against the impact of hyperinflationary increases. So, instead of paying exorbitant electricity bills for absolutely no return, you’ll be investing your money into your new resources, saving thousands over the long term and increasing your property value by up to 15-20%.
If looking at it from an investment point of view. If you invest R20-30 000 normally fixed for 5 years you, cannot get more than an 8% return annually and you have to pay tax on the return. But if you invest your money in buying a solar system you can expect an annual return of 30% or more from your savings and it is tax free.
So, instead of paying exorbitant electricity bills, you’ll be investing the money over the short term into your new renewable resources, while saving thousands over the long term.
