Solar as a Service – A Cheaper yet Efficient Way to Switch to Solar

Solar as a Service is a new offering and service that Versofy has unrolled to the public in recent weeks. Much like the SaaS (Software as a Service) offering in which IT companies offer customers their industry-leading packages on a pay-as-you-go basis, Versofy offers the same leading solar subscription services, for as long as you need it, at an even more affordable monthly price. Surely a ray of good news to the cash-strapped and power-starved public!

At Versofy, we like to think of ourselves as forward-thinking, dynamic and tough within current circumstances. And with a record-breaking load-shedding schedule that surpassed even Stage 5 for weeks on end since our last series of blogs, alternative energy solutions are now needed more than ever. 

Surpassing the 600th home installed with a rent-to-own hybrid solar system solution in the last year, Versofy wants to remind the public that we’re always keeping things charged. Hatching new plans, new solutions and new considerations to implement an action plan that assists in the name of renewable energy. 

The Cheapest Way to Switch to Solar

The notion is pretty much felt everywhere that people simply cannot be doing the same thing and expecting a different result anymore. Versofy is where more people can now, under new terms, still enjoy the benefits of solar systems, and for even less currently than what has been available before. Enter, Solar as a Service – a new solar solutions model for an additional avenue to join the energy revolution. A monthly solar rental option that offers almost all the benefits of our current solar subscriptions, starting from just R1,999 per month. 

Solar as-a-Service” Subscription Models

Known for their usage in Cloud technology – SaaS, PaaS and IaaS are Software, Platform and Infrastructure-as-a-Service models that enable the users thereof to enjoy the full functionality of all dynamic online services included at single rental rates to them.
In terms of real-time management, it includes extensive monitoring capabilities to enjoy unparalleled oversight and assistance during these rental times. Mimicking the service received as if you were the actual owner of these services exclusively – but at a fraction of the price. This is precisely what Versofy aims to offer South Africans, as part of our extended solar finance options.

Solar as a Service – Renting Instead of Purchasing 

To lower the barrier of entry to the solar market, Versofy has always proposed our much-loved subscription possibilities. Packages that enable users to rent a solar system whilst paying it off to eventually take ownership of in 60 months. As the call to join the energy revolution grows, we hvae taken the innovative step to include an additional service offering, in line with our Versofy GROW, CHARGE, and PLUS packages. Taking a tip from the Cloud industry in the way they do it for businesses and enterprises running their operations from the Internet exclusively.

Solar as a Service (SAAS) is an exclusive rental agreement only, providing the most cost-efficient solar solution yet:

  •  starting rate of R1999pm (Versofy GROW)
  •  R2999pm (Versofy CHARGE)
  •  R3599pm (Versofy PLUS).

Solar as a Service – Eliminate if you need to Emigrate!

Due to the size and complexity of a solar installation, the rule of thumb has always been to advise against a solar installation when the premises is not owned by the customer installing it. Moving and relocating an installation requires serious labour that we may not be able to guarantee without the foresight of where you might be moving to. Thus, keeping that option out of the service agreement to avoid complicating it with you further – until now. 

If the possibility of future emigration or relocation has been holding you back from investing in solar energy, our SaaS option provides the peace of mind that we will pick up the hardware when you need to move your life elsewhere. 

Solar as a Service – Cancel Any Time

The changing energy landscape and competitive nature thereof require that all solar service providers think flexibly and on their feet. Change is inevitable (and as good as a holiday).
