There is much discussion about living a “green” lifestyle and changes you can make at home that will not only assist the environment but also save on your household expenses. For many the question has been what steps they can take towards this lifestyle and where they can find green energy efficient products. 


SolarJoy, one of the first businesses to sell and install solar panels for geysers on the Cape Flats, was established in 2005 by Mahmood Chikté, a qualified mechanical engineer. Being that solar energy is a growing alternative in communities, Mahmood started researching solar energy and its advantages ten years ago and has been trading as a sole proprietor from home. 

We have since installed over 450 high pressure solar water heating systems across the Western Cape. “It is fact that a correctly installed solar water heating system can save you up to 80% on your annual water heating costs” says Mahmood We have since moved to a larger premises at the Lansdowne Junction Centre in Jan Smuts Drive where he has been joined by his son Raees. This space will allow us at SolarJoy to serve a larger base of clients. We will always be ready to give advice on green energy to anyone that requires any.
