JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 26 October 2023 /African Media Agency (AMA)/-In a move to transform the global energy landscape, the leading energy solutions company Luminous Power Technologies, (a 100% subsidiary of Schneider Electric) has forayed into the South African market forging a partnership with the leading country distributor Hudaco Energy, a group company of Hudaco Industries Ltd. Having established a strong foothold across the African continent in the past 15 years, this landmark partnership is a major milestone for Luminous Power Technologies as it further strengthens its foothold in the African market. 

Luminous is launching market-relevant products tailored to the unique demands of South African consumers. The company has launched the first ever Lithium battery pack – LITCORE for the market, manufactured in India. It is compact, provides 3X fast charging and higher power density for consistency. It has also launched its superlative range of inverters and batteries like the ICON, Eco Volt Neo Series (900Va to 2KVa), Optimus and Inverlast Tubular batteries (150Ah, 200Ah, 220 Ah). In addition to introducing its diverse range of energy solutions, Luminous plans to make South Africa a hub for sustainable power solutions, including complete residential rooftop solar solutions (3KVa & 5KVa) and training and certifying local electricians as solar experts.

Speaking on the brand’s launch in South Africa and partnership with Hudaco Group, Preeti Bajaj, CEO & MD, Luminous Power Technologies, said, “We are excited to embark on this journey with Hudaco Group and extend our commitment to delivering reliable and innovative energy solutions to the people of South Africa.

Ensuring that customers have a seamless experience, Luminous aims to establish more than 200 touch points across the country by the end of next year,” she added.
