SSC Energy

Putting power in the hands of the people.

SSC Energy is an emerging 100% South African black-owned alternative energy developer.

Company Overview

SSC Energy is an emerging 100% South African black and majority black-women-owned Level 1 B-BBEE contributor, and is built on the belief that clean, reliable energy should be accessible and affordable to everyone in our country.

The company’s purpose of accelerating energy independence, initially in the mining sector, is becoming more vital, especially in current times where the country’s power grid is constantly under pressure, and load shedding leaves both businesses and communities in the dark.

It aims to achieve this by developing generation plants in conjunction with its strategic partners.

SSC Energy is a member of the SSC Group and enjoys the full benefit of the support structure offered by the diverse group of companies. This gives SSC Energy the distinct advantages of being well established in the industry, as well as being backed by appropriate technical, operational, financial and legal skills.


SSC Energy is committed to furthering social advances in terms of sustainability, to ensure that communities benefit from its growth.
It aims to become a world-class renewable energy developer.

Strategy & focus

SSC Energy has the ability, through the collaborations with its strategic partners, to Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) energy plants of various sizes, ranging from 1 MW “movable” units to 100 MW permanent installations, and has access to a professional team of more than 150 engineers and project managers who are multi-skilled, with extensive experience in the construction of photovoltaic plants.

Working closely with its strategic partners, SSC Energy is well positioned to design, finance, develop, source, purchase and implement the best-proven technology and equipment results in a plant with a very high degree of reliability. SSC Energy will also oversee and plan every generation requirement in detail to allow its team of experts to accurately calculate expected plant income for the life of the project.
