I bought a franchise at the beginning of the year. I was promised loads of things that never happened. Their products are overpriced, they have no system, there's no support and the 'work' they promised turned out to be a load of online generated leads that get sent out to 5 other companies.

Their contract does not comply with the consumer protection act. They don't reply if you complain about something. You are required to use their suppliers, but you have to compete with the very same suppliers for business.

Do not buy a franchise from these guys! You will lose a lot of money.

Monetary Loss: $7400.

Hi - we are looking to buy a Gener 8 franchise. The above makes me worry. Are things going well with your business?

Gener 8 is a well established franchise with since 2007 and well recognised with the DOE and ESKOM, the complainant has no grounds to complain, the business is sound and all agreements comply with the relevant regulations and acts. This is one of the best solar energy franchises out there, I have being operating since 2014 and its a huge success, Its a matter of running a business
