Positioning itself as the market leader in Southern Africa within 36 months from inception in order to be best placed to take advantage of our markets tipping point. Drawing on over 30 years collective experience within the renewable energy sector Solterra was created through the combination of various talents and core competencies, such as technical, marketing, R&D and legal.
