Restio Energy Pty Ltd

Developing a Sustainable Clean Energy Distribution Business in South African Townships

The project focused on developing a distribution infrastructure within townships to ensure households can access clean and affordable energy products. It was our intension to evolve this sales approach into a micro-franchise, allowing for more formalized retail infrastructure within the township, once the market is more aware of the product and the sales circumstances permits.
