The company made donations of almost R1 million to different sectors of Gqeberha.
POWERX, in alignment with Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality’s (NMBM) Green Vision, started trade in 2016 and has since assisted the municipality in achieving successful trade of green power while facilitating local economic development.
POWERX is an aggregator of clean energy and sources power from different green technologies from all over South Africa and imports it into Gqeberha. POWERX also sources power from internal generators which include a large wind power producer, as well as over 40 micro-scale PV solar facilities and counting.
These facilities contributed to over R150 million in capital investments into the local municipality. This also ensured other future revenues, cost savings, as well as permanent jobs being created in the Bay area.
POWERX will be facilitating the expansion of generation facilities within the borders of the municipality by another 25MW, which will increase the capital investment to a staggering R650 million.
POWERX has assisted the full spectrum from small, to large-scale customers with much-needed discounts and rebates to weather these tough economic times that businesses find themselves in.
In the last 12 months, POWERX has provided over R4 million in trade discounts and rebates and projects to grow this to R6 million in the next 12 months.
Over and above these benefits POWERX has provided much-needed Renewable Energy Certificates to those customers in Gqeberha that have a mandate to Go-Green. This in turn meant that certain large-scale customers could be retained in the Nelson Mandela Bay area, instead of being forced to relocate their business premises to a different municipal area. The risk of large-scale consequential job losses has been prevented by them meeting these critical targets.
POWERX has more than 120 postpaid customers of which nine are international customers and 28 are national customers.
