City Power Johannesburg

Off-grid solar lighting solution enhances safety, prevents crime, and allows communities to maintain their informal businesses after sunset.

We are supplying the solar lighting highmast solution for City Power Johannesburg’s project to supply communities with lighting which is independent of the power grid.

City Power Johannesburg is a state-owned power utility, wholly owned by the City of Johannesburg, whose responsibilities include buying electricity from power producers and supplying it to the public, and installing and maintaining the electrical infrastructure in the city of Johannesburg. It supplies electricity to 3.2 million people in the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan Area.

The Municipality needed an off-grid solar lighting solution for the communities of Soweto, Lenasia, Eldorado Park, Finetown, Mogale City, Diepsloot, Heidelberg and Emfuleni. The vandalism resulting from power supply interruptions has wreaked havoc in these communities, causing crime levels to increase and compromise the safety of the residents. With this solar highmast solution, lighting is now being provided to the communities, independent of the power grid.

Solar Lighting Highmast Solution

BEKA Schréder’s SOLARFLOOD, designed and manufactured in South Africa, is a solar lighting highmast solution for outdoor open area and rural applications, providing a high performing, robust option for off-grid solar lighting requirements.

The SOLARFLOOD provides a reliable lighting solution with a high Ingress Protection level (IP 66) that withstands high ambient temperatures. The SOLARFLOOD is a sustainable off-grid performer with a superior lumen/watt ratio. Our high-performing optics allow for mounting of up to 20m, providing high-quality light where it is needed. 

The photovoltaic energy conversion is optimized by highly efficient Monocrystalline solar module technology. This, in conjunction with our Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charging system and our lithium energy storage technology, provides a state-of-the-art quality system, offering the required system autonomy and providing a long-lasting solution to operate in harsh environmental conditions.


Grateful Communities

The communities are extremely grateful that the Gauteng Province and City Power Johannesburg have come to their aid by installing these solar highmasts, as they create safety, deter crime and enable them to continue with their informal business even after the sun has set.


Locally manufactured

We develop and manufacture energy-efficient LED lighting products in South Africa, designed and suitable for local conditions. 

We are very proud to be associated with City Power Johannesburg in providing a successful solar lighting solution for this important project.
