WindStrom S.A. was founded in 2000 in Cape Town by its director Wolfgang Michalke as a partner company to the German WindStrom South, based in Germany, with the intention to generate Wind Energy in South Africa.
In 2012 WindStrom Innovative Energies became a shareholder in the South African WindStrom S.A., bringing a 20 year experience from Europe in generating and managing Wind and Solar Energy to South Africa.
With the technical support from Filip Wolfs on the local side, planning and designing PV Systems and Backup Solutions, WindStrom S.A. - Renewable Energy Solutions - became a face and proved to be a reliable partner in the local PV industry.
We mounted several PV-applications (with and without battery backup) on private houses, small as large commercial units, ground mounted units on farms and proudly managed to install more than 894kW of renewable energy systems by the end of 2017.
In 2017 we upgraded our business with “professional cleaning equipment” for cleaning and maintaining PV systems to gain maximum energy out of your PV plant without using any kind of chemicals or additives. Our special treated water and equipment does the job.
By the end of 2012 we were
successful in erecting two 80kw
Farm Turbines, manufactured by Lagerwey, on two farm-sites in Swellendam.
