Our Satisfied Customer Review

Why did you choose renewable energy?
I knew that the upfront investment was somewhat weighty, even with the rebate, but I thought that it would be an investment into the future with a little sacrifice to go with it. I reasoned that the whole world is going that way, and very quickly at that, and I would not wrong to be going that way too. Besides I read amply before on developments in the industry along with the efficiency gains that were being made over time.
Why did you choose ESS as your PV supplier?
He made my venture sound great and again that was encouraging. It turned out that my first conversation with the service provider was so rewarding and fulfilling that I did not even bother to explore other potential suppliers; not even to explore if they would be cheaper or not.
How are you benefiting from your PV system?
With the first installation my electricity bill went down by almost 50% (most times) while the second 2 kilo watt installation is taking an additional 30% or so off my bill.
Money saved can best be used for more immediate investment.

Seychelles Achieves 1.6 MW of PV Installed Panels

According to the Public Utilities Company (PUC), the total electricity generation from grid-connected PV systems had reached 2,421,812 kWh as of 30 June 2016 based on monthly PUC billing data and it is estimated that an emissions reduction of 1,671 tons CO2 equivalent has been achieved.
In simple terms that is an estimated 6,400 PV panels installed with a surface area of around 10,500 m2 which equates to removing 360 cars off the road, not burning 3,940 barrels of oil, planting 44,100 trees and powering 700 low electricity consuming homes for one year.
This is a wonderful and exciting achievement in just a few short years.

The Face Behind Energy Solutions Seychelles

Director and entrepreneur of ESS, Mr Richard Hoareau, was born to Seychellois parents and raised in Australia for the majority of his life, only to return to Seychelles to start ESS.
When asked about the reason for such a big decision Mr Hoareau replied “Seychelles is always in my heart and the environment is most important to me. I felt that I could make a big difference in Seychelles with the help of the Seychelles people and my specialised skill set.”
ESS has grown from a two-person business to now providing employment for 6 people. Additionally, ESS promotes sustainability by supplying many homes and businesses with clean green PV renewable energy.
When questioned if one person can really make a difference, Mr Hoareau replied “like a stone thrown into a lake, it only takes one act of kindness from one person to start a ripple effect.”
