Green initiative pays off

OUT the Green Box Renewable Energy Solutions has contributed to growing the green initiative in East London and its surrounding areas over the past couple of years, providing quality renewable services to businesses – and home owners alike.

Owners of the Southern Africa’s reputable engineering company, Eya Bantu Professional Services, Craig Powell and Mike Brown, noticed a gap in the market where top- notch engineering and emerging renewable energy solutions could join forces, providing a professional service in the green industry.

Thus two years’ ago, this dynamic pair seized this “green” opportunity and introduced Out the Green Box to East London.

Over the past four years, Out the Green Box has grown immensely, launching in East London, Port Elizabeth, George and Cape Town. Energy audits, system design and installations of heat pumps, PV panels, inverters, charge controllers, LED and energy-efficient lighting, off-grid solutions, battery banks, UPS systems, grid tied systems, solar water heaters, rain water harvesting and solar pool heating are among the list of services Out the Green Box offers.

East London’s Pearce Street was graced with a new green presence when Out the Green Box opened their retail store last year.

The shop features a range of stock from renewable energy products available for purchase, through to display areas including a range of LED Lighting that would suit your home, solar fridges, solar geysers, batteries – and, then, onto their outdoor/adventure section.

Areena Riverside Resort, Olivewood Golf Estate, InvestPro and S Haynes & Associates are among the few major commercial clients that have taken the green step by utilising Out the Green Box’s services.

“It was not by choice but necessity that I had to change over from Eskom, with their continual decline in service delivery and their lack of will, shocking service and astronomical constant unacceptable high electricity tariffs as well as their sewed overhead monopolistic cost increases.

“It was a bold decision changing to Solar PV electricity which has already show n good results and will have a four year payback on ROI. Out the Green Box are an amazing bunch of people who are extremely dedicated, very professional and serious in everything they do. Their services and prices are incredible and I was amazed at how fast and efficient their installation takes,” Areena Riverside Resort owner and operator, Ed Rathbone said.

This year the store furthered its inventory into the outdoor adventure category – along with the company’s involvement in adventure events.

“Being outside is part of our corporate culture and lifestyle. By promoting outdoor activities we can enjoy our environment and not just take from it,” Craig Powell said.

The company’s retail store took form to this ideal by stocking Merrell, Salomon, Black Diamond, Falke, Versus, Garmin and Suunto for the East London community to enjoy.

In preparation for this year’s festive season, Out the Green Box has chosen to spread the love by dropping their prices just in time for Christmas.

Pop into the Out the Green Box store between 7.30am and 4.30pm from Monday to Saturday (Saturday open until 12.30pm) and take advantage of these festive season savings.
