Solar-Saver uses RUT routers for communication with their solar PV plants.

Customer profile

Solar-Saver is a company that designs, installs and rents solar photovoltaic systems. They cover all the costs for design, installation, monitoring, insurance and maintenance so the only thing that their clients have to worry about is deciding how to spend their monthly savings. They currently run a portfolio of 59 solar plants across Namibia and South Africa covering all corners of the country.


The customer needed a communications system that is robust on the unstable local GSM network so that they could monitor all of their solar PV plants in real time without having to travel to the sites.


After trying a range of GSM routers on the market, the customer settled on Teltonika's RUT routers implementing all of their sites with this technology.

RUT routers ensure good reliability, which is especially relevant in the fairly harsh Namibian climate. The remote reset and configuration abilities of the devices eliminate the need to physically travel from site to site for maintenance purposes. The small compact din rail sizing fits into their systems perfectly. Finally, the low cost and ease of installation made RUT products the obvious choice to solve the customer's challenge in communication.
