Stimulate local manufacturing

The development of large-scale power generation projects not only provides a lifeline for the local manufacturing industry, but an opportunity to ensure meaningful participation of women across the entire energy value chain.

Through an Enterprise Development Programme with a leading metal, copper, brass, aluminium, steel and plastic component manufacturer, Kani is able to participate in the manufacturing of electrical components by leveraging access to technical support and a 12 500m² manufacturing facility that is ISO 9001 certified and also accredited to manufacture flame proof product ranges.

Kani is positioned to manufacture a wide range of components in the energy value chain, such as:

•Combiner boxes

•Transformer components

•Earthing Products

•Clamping Equipment

•Copper Cable Terminals 

•Switch Operators

•Surge Arrestors

•Insulator Stick Handles

•Buzzbar Insulators



Kani recognizes that as an integral component of modern society, access to electricity plays a pivotal role in economic prosperity, with a fundamental contributor to economic growth being education. Statistics show that 78% of Grade 4 pupils in South Africa cannot read for basic meaning, that means eight of ten 10-year-olds in South Africa, are functionally illiterate.

#READPower is a social investment initiative developed by Kani in partnership with Educubed Foundation to distribute solar lighting systems to households in informal settlements and rural communities who cannot afford electricity and fund literacy and numeracy programmes in those communities.

The Programme also incorporates unemployed youth, with a focus on women, living in informal settlements, with unemployed youth from the community being trained to install and maintain the lighting solutions.

Participating in the #READPower Programme will enable you to make a meaning contribution in the lives of those living in impoverished communities.
