Mokopane Innovative Solutions has partnered with renewable energy company oneenergy to source and supply middle to upper-class home owners with technology that helps them save money on their electricity bill. We reach our customers through mall exhibitions, email campaigns, street boards and word of mouth from our existing clients.
Our revenue streams are from sales of renewable energy products (Solar geysers, heat pumps, PV systems, solar borehole pumps, solar flood lights) and maintenance services we provide for existing clients.
Our key resources are our plumber and electrician. We buy our products from an international wholesaler which provides local servicing which allows us to provide tier one products with a good warranty.
