V&A Waterfront set to implement huge solar power project

As a result of our strained national grid, along with the worldwide shift towards clean energy, a growing number of businesses and individuals have begun to acknowledge the massive potential that solar power in South Africa holds.


Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront has taken a big step towards reducing their environmental footprint by starting installation of more than 7 500 m² of solar panels. These rooftop photovoltaic panels will be installed on eight key buildings on the 123-hectare property, including the Watershed, the Two Oceans Aquarium and Ports Edge.


This R20 million large scale solar project is set to produce an estimated 1 640 000 kWh units of clean energy annually, and reduce the carbon emissions by 1 610 tonnes per year. The average daily production will be 4 495 kWh.


This project will conserve an estimated 1 721 956 kWh annually, or the equivalent of the energy required to power 574 four-person households.
