About GreenCo Power Services Limited (GreenCo).
GreenCo's vision is to lead innovation and sustainably transform renewable energy markets.
• An innovative business model with sector changing potential.
• Focused on creating impact through innovative business solutions in the energy sector.

GreenCo acts as an intermediary offtaker and service provider, purchasing power from renewable IPPs and selling that electricity to utilities and private sector offtakers (i.e. commercial and industrial users) and markets of the SAPP. GreenCo will mitigate the risk of purchaser default through an ability to secure alternative buyers or through short-term trading on the SAPP electricity markets. Through its participation in competitive power markets, GreenCo will promote cross-border power transactions and a more dynamic and liquid short-term power market. Through its activities, GreenCo will increase the supply of, and demand for, finance for energy projects, and mobilise private sector capital more quickly towards critical and transformative capacity addition.
GreenCo is a women-led start-up and its ambitions to hire more female employees require a proactive approach to overcome the shortage of qualified applicants.
