EFI Solar Energy and Inverters.
Efi was established in 2012. With an established background in electrical contracting, servicing major construction and development companies in Cape Town, EFI was started as a tributary branch of Kamish Electrical . EFI, catering to minor electrical and security market quickly established itself as one of the leading electric fence installation companies in Cape Town.
Our Director , Y.Kamish, took interest in Green Energy in 2014 , attending numerous training courses in photovoltaic electrical and green solar energy generation in hopes of one day pursuing this new avenue.
Interest in solar energy, then was not what it is today. Although Eskom was already headed for disaster, the extent of the problem was always “swept under the rug,” and South Africans were under the impression that they had a fairly stable grid.
It was not until the advent of load shedding that South Africans realized that they could not depend on Eskom to provide a stable electricity supply to meet the growing electricity demand. Coupled with the rising electricity costs, it was clear that solar energy was the only way to go.
Recognizing a need for back up solutions for our clients due to Eskom loadshedding in South Africa , with our extensive electrical background , access to major electrical suppliers at whole sale prices and our directors past training in Solar energy, it was at this point where preparation and opportunity met.
EFI then officially branched out to solar Energy and Inverter solutions.
Having gone through many trials and errors with different brands of solar and hybrid inverters systems, batteries and solar panels, EFI soon established which brands and components were best suited to deal with our current loadshedding circumstances as well as equipment that is scalable to accommodate future degradation of our electricity supply.
