Solar power boost for Mandela University

.

NELSON Mandela University’s South Campus will soon be producing just over 10% of its electricity requirements, thanks to an innovative R18-million green power plant, which is being established on the campus this month (July).
The installation of the two-hectare solar photovoltaics (PV) power plant, which will produce 1740 MWh of electricity per year and has a 20-year lifespan, will begin in the next two weeks, with renewable energy being fed into the South Campus grid by December or January.
The new plant, which is one of many on-campus sustainability initiatives, is the result of a partnership between the university and renewable energies company Tasol Solar.
