I needed a solution to keep my house running during load shedding to keep the lights on and ensure that the household of 4 continued to get thru a busy week. We then decided to contact Metrowatt to assist with this requirement. Laurent and his team was fast, efficient and very helpful. Answered all the questions we had to assist us in coming up with the correct solution, therefore i would highly recommend Metrowatt if you are thinking of having a solar installation installed at your house.

I'd been investigating solar solutions for a while before I came across Metrowatt. Apart from their cost effective packages, their service was wonderful. Valerie kept in constant contact with me and made the journey to solar seamless. Would highly recommend their professional services.

Fantastic service!
We were up and running in only a few days and are 80% off grid.
Love the well designed app that shows live power feeds.
Knowledgeable team willing to go the extra mile.
Would definitely recommend them!

Metrowatt Customer Review

The sales team was responsive compared to other providers. I'm hoping they will keep it up during the life of the contract. The installation was seamless but took longer than planned because of the ancient wiring in my house, and a mighty hailstorm!:

The installers brought everything up to code before connecting the system, that's the perk of using Metrowatt, I didn't have to fork out an extra cent when my old house gave challenges.

Thanks to the team for a great experience. Would love to see commercial solutions too for small to medium offices.

We have had our Solar installation for 6 months. The needs evaluation was thorough and personal, despite that we fitted in with the standard 5000kw system and 11 panels. Metrowatt prepared all documents to submit to our Estate for permission to install. Installation was a breeze and training on how it operates and how to use the App was comprehensive and understandable. From that time I totally fell in love with our Solar. We are never without power and i just love running the washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher, during loadshedding, on a sunny day. Our Escom bill was R83 last month!! What's not to love. The support, monitoring and ongoing assistance that Metrowatt provide is invaluable and makes for a carefree and enjoyable system, whether you happen to be at home or away. Thank you Metrowatt!

We approached Metrowatt for a rental solar installation at the end of 2022 when it became clear that we needed to manage the stress of ongoing indefinite loadshedding and find ways to start using renewable energy sources. We have been extremely impressed by the team and management and contractors used by Metrowatt. Our system was installed in early January 2023 and it works very well. In particular we have been grateful for the excellent customer service and communications from Metrowatt. Highly recommended.

We used Metrowatt to Install our solar system at home. They were on time and completed the installation quickly and efficiently. Their after-service has been amazing. They are always available to assist when a problem arise. We are extremely happy with the service and the product we receive from them. Highly recommended!

Outstanding service and advice during installation!

Chrissie Rey

I was recommended Metrowatt by a friend. When I heard that the company will be in Cape Town as well, I started to make enquiries in February and received all the necessary information and correspondence from the sales team to make a calculated decision.

The process between acceptance and installation took a while (about 7 weeks), due to the very high demand for solar in South Africa at the moment. Even so, the team at Metrowatt communicated every step of the process (keeping me in the loop regarding where things are at in the supply chain and installation). They were also very quick to respond to any enquiries I might have. I never felt "in the dark" . This helps a lot!

The installation was very professional (quality workmanship) and the support has been great. I highly recommend Metrowatt.

Highly recommend!

After painstakingly researching various rental options, I went with Metrowatt because of the exceptional service offered. Walter and Sicelo have been so helpful and informative and reliable throughout the process. Metrowatt offers many options to suit all homes and needs and is a professional and well-organized team. Contract T&Cs are reasonable, and they are in my opinion more fair than the others I've seen. Also important to note that they obtain all the necessary legal and municipal documents for you and appoint properly qualified contractors, so everything is above board and you don't have to take time to do it yourself.

From our signing up, to the installation process, it’s been completely seamless… And the team have been, from beginning to end, incredibly courteous and highly service-oriented.

Kerry Botha

Metrowatt Solar Customer

Outstanding service from Metrowatt - had an excellent experience in negotiating the contract - slick and neat installation and exceptional after care support . When my system tripped one evening after the return of load-shedding the call centre called 4 x to try and resolve and then the MD of the company came out to my house at 10pm to trouble shoot and restore - so impressive. Had i gone it alone i would never have enjoyed such excellent after service care. Well done Metrowatt!

Metrowatt absolutely delivered on what they promised. It was about a 50% reduction in electricity costs.
