JSE-listed diversified real estate investment trust Redefine Properties’ (JSE: RDF) strategy on solar energy is delivering cost efficiencies across the business and improving performance on key sustainability metrics.

Balwin, South Africa’s largest homebuilder focusing on large scale sectional-title residential estates in high-growth, high-density metropolitan nodes in South Africa’s major cities, released its interim results for the six months ended 31 August 2017.

The payback period on commercial solar photovoltaic (PV) systems has decreased substantially and many companies can now expect solar panel installations to pay for themselves within five years or less. 

JSE listed Balwin Properties has partnered with SolarAfrica to introduce solar energy to its upmarket developments.

With seven solar farms successfully generating renewable energy at its buildings across South Africa, Growthpoint Properties is now embarking on its largest rooftop solar installations yet.

Growthpoint Properties has targeted boosting its solar energy generation capacity to over 6MWp by mid-2016 to become one of the largest generators of rooftop solar power in South Africa.

While the ‘green revolution’ in residential property, unlike in the commercial sector, is still in its infancy, rapid strides in technology and increasing awareness of the potential cost savings and reduced environmental impact are making good sense to more and more home owners – and home buyers, says Pam Golding Properties.

Hyprop Investment Limited’s Gauteng-based regional shopping centre, Clearwater Mall, has tripled the generation output of its solar photovoltaic PV plant and now boasts Africa’s largest rooftop Solar PV system.

The Cape Quarter, the flagship property within the Tower Property Funds portfolio, is set to soon receive an extensive solar retrofit as part of the funds greening and occupancy cost reduction strategy.
