Versofy SOLAR, under Mains-Sheard’s guidance, is pioneering this change with its Versofy HOME app, positioning itself as a technology company rather than just a solar provider. This app and the company’s services are designed to lower costs and enhance energy efficiency by optimizing the use of solar energy. The ultimate goal is to foster a sustainable, economical, and efficient world, where energy waste is minimized.

A significant focus is on leveraging the Internet of Things [IoT] to revolutionize energy management in homes. This involves using smart technology to monitor and control energy use more effectively, thus making homes more independent from the national grid and reducing their environmental impact. The potential for real-time monitoring of energy consumption and production presents an opportunity for South Africans to make informed decisions that lower their energy usage and costs, while also enabling system upgrades when necessary.

Moreover, Mains-Sheard envisions a future where the economic benefits of solar energy are undeniable, with the possibility of homes with solar systems being more viable than those without. This vision includes the potential for households to sell excess energy back to the grid, further reducing electricity costs and promoting the widespread adoption of solar technology. Such advancements align with global trends towards sustainable living and promise significant improvements in quality of life through reduced carbon footprints and energy costs.
