IMPOWER, a specialist engineering, procurement, and project management contractor (EPCM) within the solar and energy storage industry, and Econo Foods have been in a strategic partnership since 2019.
IMPOWER serves the commercial and industrial property sector by providing tailored solar and storage energy solutions ranging between 100 kW and 1 MW in size.
The collaboration was founded on a mutual vision to not only embrace sustainability to positively impact the environment, but to add value to surrounding businesses and communities alike by empathising with their needs and tailoring solutions that are commercially, environmentally, and socially sustainable. Further, the duo has proactively incorporated the communities wherein they jointly operate to enable long-term sustainable value transfer.
Econo Foods is a privately-owned leading food service provider which specialises in frozen and chilled products across Southern Africa. Many Econo Food stores are sited in remote, outlying areas, with energy access to such rural regions remaining a major challenge. In view of this, and in a bid to reduce their carbon footprint, these stores are committed to instating sustainable methodologies across their business operations, with one way being via improving their energy efficiency practices.
To this end, the company commissioned IMPOWER to enable it to achieve its sustainability objectives. By implementing rooftop solar technologies, the power supplier has allowed Econo Foods to significantly reduce their energy bills, thereby enabling the company to provide fresh food at a lower cost to clients with less impact on the environment.
While the partnership aims to positively impact surrounding communities and the environment within which they operate, collaborative action from both entities also proactively instils green energy solutions that ultimately contribute to the economic growth of the African people at large.
