Who we are

Plentify is a smart energy company that makes affordable, reliable and clean electricity a reality for everyone. Our team fuses advanced hardware, artificial intelligence and user-centric design to create smart home products that delight our customers and strengthen electricity systems for everyone.

Plentify is based in South Africa and the United States, and our well-rounded team of energy, data science, hardware, software and business experts serve customers from all around the world.

Our story

Plentify was born out of need. Plentify’s founders grew up in South Africa, and in 2008, rolling blackouts began. The country’s energy system continued to deteriorate almost as fast as tariffs rose, making its power supply increasingly unreliable and unaffordable – as it stands today.

South Africa’s situation is not unique. Electricity grids around the globe are under immense pressure as rapid urbanisation and climate change strain them in new ways, and renewable energy solutions struggle to integrate into existing systems. It’s clear that utilities worldwide need to adapt to a quickly and dramatically-changing future.

Having experienced the impact of these changes first-hand, the Plentify team banded together to tackle pressing energy challenges through their unique mix of skills. We firmly believe that a smarter, cleaner and cheaper energy system is key to enabling societal and planetary resilience.
