When he’s not calling for solar everywhere or for a fair and free society through active citizenry, Sunny is the CEO of Enerlogy (Pty) Ltd, a company that helps consumers and businesses produce their own electricity using solar to save money and reduce their reliance on the grid.
Creative entrepreneurs, like Sunny, have found innovative ways to utilise solar energy that can lead to huge increases in access to clean and green electricity. He believes that access to energy is a basic human right and that nobody should be deprived of it. He asserts that energy security is a catalyst for economic growth.
Sunny educates and mobilises all types of audiences, particularly the youth. In one such instance, he used the opportunity of a Climate Change School Awareness campaign organised by the Gauteng Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (GDARD) in South Africa, to teach the learners about solar energy, and presented on the use of solar panels at several schools across Gauteng province. The learners beamed with excitement when Sunny explained that solar energy is used to power watches, calculators, cookers, water heaters, lighting, and water pumps – but also for communication, transportation, and can create the electricity that we use.
