Energy efficient ways to light up your garden

The sun might be setting a little earlier than it did at the beginning of the year.

Redefine Properties’ Black River Park in Cape Town has cemented its position as Africa’s largest integrated photovoltaic (PV) plant when it turned on phase 3 of its PV installation earlier this month.

The deal, which is subject to shareholder approval, provides equity funding for the Lekela Power platform, a joint venture with the global pan-emerging market private equity firm Actis.

Green building is gaining rapid momentum in Africa with office buildings in Rwanda and Namibia both receiving 6-Star Green Star ratings, certified by the Green Building Council of South Africa (GBCSA).

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.

The renewable energy sector is doing well at the East London Industrial Development Zone (ELIDZ), said the Department of Trade and Industry.

The National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) has granted Eskom a 9.4% tariff increase for the 2016/17 financial year.

In line with Africrest Properties strategy the company continues to acquire commercial properties with good fundamentals that require care and attention.
