Especially those relying on wood. They battle daily trying to heat up just a little bit of water. Smoke from wet wood trying to heat up water for shacks. The nature of informal housing structures makes the installation of conventional solar geysers impossible, which excluded millions of people from access to solar geyser technology.

A DIY solar Geyser, the front panel insulation is put in place, keeping the water warm till late at night. In the morning it needs to be removed again.

Sun Genius

Product Description


SunGenius solar water geysers, as a part of our solar solutions for Africa, was specifically developed for people living in informal settlements. This patent pending solar geyser is filled up manually and provides affordable and convenient running solar heated water either inside or outside the shack, while cutting out wood, paraffin, gas and electricity for heating up water.

How does it work

  • A heavy duty Solar solution for Africa black flexible solar geyser is installed on a wall facing the sun. It is manually or automatically filled up with water by connecting it to running water or by filling it up with a bottle or mug. The black front panel is heated up by the sun, which transfers the heat to the water inside the geyser. An insulated panel on the side not facing the sun prevents the heated water from cooling down again.
  • When the sun sets, the solar hot water for informal settlements in South African panel is covered with a removable insulation, keeping the water warm till late at night. In the morning the front panel insulation is removed for solar heating to resume. The front insulation panel is permanently attached to the geyser and takes seconds to cover and uncover.
