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 new generation solar panels for geysers on the Cape Flats, was established in 2005 by Mahmood Chikté, a qualified mechanical engineer. Prior to SolarJoy being established, Mahmood Specialised in Refrigeration Design for 17 years at a South African based, Swiss company, through which his interest and research into solar energy began. Recognising an opportunity for a growing sustainable alternative to heating water for all communities, Mahmood started researching further into its advantages ten years ago and started trading as a sole proprietor from home.
SolarJoy has since moved to larger premises in Lansdowne, where Mahmood has been joined by his son, Raees. Raees says that the space has allowed SolarJoy to serve a larger base of clients and to have increased its product range with various forms of sustainable energy.
SolarJoy now serves as a green energy consulting company, specialising in solar water heating, heat pumps, pool heating, photovoltaics and LED lighting.

“It is fact that a correctly installed solar water heating system or heat pump can save ±80% and ±67% respectively, of your yearly water heating costs. Also swopping out your conventional incandescent light bulbs with LED lighting can drop your lighting bill by up to ±90%” says Mahmood.
