Premium Partners for 2023

As in previous years, IBC awarded the 2023 Premium Partners along with trophies including ‘Installer of the Year’ and ‘Project of the Year’, among others.

To the end of 2022, IBC SOLAR South Africa continued the tradition with year-end functions in both Johannesburg and Cape Town, during December 2022. At these events, the top and most loyal clients of the company were awarded as Premium Partners of IBC SOLAR by Daniel Haitzler, Managing Director.

Each of these partners received a certificate to thank them for their long-lasting support and great work. As Daniel explained, “a IBC Premium Partner is not only a company making the biggest turnover with us, which is also important, but the customers who typically follow the IBC SOLAR system approach. Customers who tend to buy a whole system from the company, using the full scope of materials offered.”

In addition to the Premium Partner Certificates IBC SOLAR also identified and  celebrated the top projects and installers for the past year. Starting with the top installer of the year for the Cape Town area, Windstrom S.A. (Pty) Ltd achieved the award for being a longstanding premium partner and being our biggest client in 2022.

Together, IBC SOLAR and Ezzy realized an SMA Multicluster system with 200kWp of solar and 500kWh storage capacity as well as numerous residential solar and backup systems.

Furthermore, the residential and commercial installers of the year were identified.
