MIT Renewable Energy

MIT Renewable Energy

MIT Group is a leading renewable energy services provider which develops highly innovative and comprehensive renewable energy saving solutions to optimize energy consumption and thereby reducing energy costs. This Endeavour to reduce energy demand or consumption is in line with the international and domestic governance trends.  MIT Group has developed strategic partnerships with key industry leaders in manufacturing, and is therefore able to share their expertise with clients, while negotiating very competitive prices.

MIT Group partners with Megatron Federal, a division of Ellies (Pty) Ltd for full electrical infrastructure projects including: Manufacture and international sourcing of Switchgear, Transformers, Substations, Diesel generators.

What we do

MIT Group provides renewable energy solutions through three major technologies such as solar energy, wind and biomass. Many of these can be retro-fitted for existing buildings or incorporated into the plans of new structures. MIT Group is geared towards large projects such as RDP housing, schools and clinics, off-grid street lights for rural areas and off-grid containerised solutions. At MIT Group we understand that renewable power generation help countries meet their sustainable development goals through provision of access to clean, secure, reliable and affordable energy.


Why go green?

Increasing pressure on natural resources for fuelling energy requirements, coupled with the increasing costs of traditional energy has resulted in the development of
numerous new technologies aimed at reducing dependence on traditional sources.

In addition to the positive environment impact, green energy is more affordable than ever before and represents the potential for savings in the future as traditional energy costs rise.

Green energy resources are abundant and are therefore virtually limitless. A once-off investment in green energy will reap results and pay for itself over and over for many years to come.

Our Services Description

 Solar Power


  • Market-leading German solar panels.
    25 years linear performance guarantee.
    Grid connected or off-grid (battery storage).

Solar water heating

  • Most effective at reducing residential consumption.
  • Saves between 25% and 35% of residential electricity usage.
  • Virtually maintenance free.


Solar Pumping

 MIT Group has a range of surface booster and submersible pumps (borehole).

Applications include domestic, municipal and agricultural.

The pumps are able to facilitate services such as water pressurizing, drinking water supply, livestock watering, filtration, irrigation and pond management as well. MIT Group has a complete working solar swimming pool pump which can be viewed at out premises in Johannesburg.

Wind Power

 MIT Group is able to supply and install power units ranging from 300W to 2kW making use of battery storage systems.

Wind turbines can be utilized alongside other technologies such as solar to create a hybrid system, using the ration 80/20 wind turbine.

Long expected product life of 15 – 20 years and can be implemented as individual units depending on the geographical location.


Off-Grid Housing

 MIT Group is geared towards larger projects and has developed specific solutions for off-grid housing.

 MIT Group has constructed an off-grid house showcasing the application of these technologies at our offices in Johannesburg.

Systems based on expected load resulting from desired appliances have been developed to be sold in a simple kit form, allowing for easy selection and installation on a large scale.

These kits seek to address the energy challenges faced by Government in providing affordable housing. The systems limit the need for additional energy by the application of numerous technologies run off-grid.


Kit A:

  • Housing unit with supply point for each of the following:
    4 lights and 1 Mobile phone charger.


Kit B:

Housing unit with supply point for each of the following:

  • 4 lights, Mobile phone charger and 1 plug point (TV or radio)
  • Provision for cooking has been made through a gas solution.
  • We can also make a customized kit as per project requirements or load functions.


Hybrid Systems

By combining various technologies into a single system, MIT Group is able to design and construct hybrid power generation plants which offer more sustained production by capitalizing on multiple sources.

Hybrid power generation plants are custom-designed to meet the required output whilst maximising potential from available sources.

Hybrid solutions coupled with storage systems can be grid-tied to ensure optimal charging of storage systems and provision of energy during peak load times.


“Greening” of buildings

 MIT Group offers consultation services to determine the energy efficiency of buildings and how to improve upon this. We offer turnkey services from assessment through design, installation and commissioning.

MIT Group offers a range of technologies which either reduce electricity consumption on the demand side or produce electricity through renewable sources such as:

  • Energy efficient lighting through LED technology, Daylight harvesting, HVAC energy efficient, Power factor correction.
  • Ability to partner in the construction of new projects and retrofit to existing structures.
  • Holistic approach tailored to the needs of the client, be it to reduce dependency on the national grid, provide back up systems, save the client money or to remove the entire structure from the national grid.


Containerized Solutions

We offer solar powered containers, customized in terms of your requirements.

These containers can be used as accommodation and support facilities for construction, and permanent remote camps (houses, schools, clinics etc.)
