Energy Partners sparks joy for animal shelter


28 November 2017: Having recently completed a solar energy generation system at the Panorama Veterinary Clinic & Specialist Centre to substantially reduce electricity bills, Energy Partners Home Solutions has also been working to do its part for the animals under the clinic’s care.

Cala van der Westhuizen, Head of Marketing and Sales at Energy Partners Home Solutions, a division of Energy Partners and part of the PSG group of companies, says that the company has now focused its efforts towards driving food and cash donations for the Lucky Lucy Foundation.

Van der Westhuizen explains that the Lucky Lucy Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation (NPO) that works tirelessly to relieve the plight of severely neglected and abused animals.

“Our client, Panorama Veterinary Clinic, not only provides top tier service to their patients, but also to the animals of the Lucky Lucy Foundation. Seeing our client’s passion for this cause has also inspired us to make a difference in the lives of these animals. As a result, Energy Partners Home Solutions has decided to partner with Panorama to make sure that even more is done to ensure their welfare.”

He adds that Energy Partners Home Solutions started by putting together a campaign, hosted by Bok Radio, to raise money for much needed medical supplies for the animals of Lucky Lucy Foundation.

In addition, Energy Partners and Panorama have been running a social media campaign during October to drive food donations for the shelter. “Our campaign, which ran until the end of October, invited social media users to guess the amount of money the Panorama Veterinary Clinic will save on their electricity bill in the month of October as a result of their newly installed solar photovoltaic system. Congratulations to Elsie Malan, whose guess was the closest to the correct amount of R4506. Instead of taking her cash prize, Malan decided to donate the amount to the Lucky Lucy Foundation. This inspired everyone at Energy Partners so much that we decided to match her donation,” van der Westhuizen says.

“We handed over the R 9 012 and 2x 12 kg canine adult medium hills food to Lucky Lucy at Panorama Veterinary Clinic on Friday 24 November. We want to encourage everyone to join us in helping to make the lives of Lucky Lucy’s animals better,” Van der Westhuizen concludes.
